Hi all,

This is my very first post, hoping to get some replies and still finding my way around. I'm about to enter the AP realm and already have my first question.

I'm going to dig (yes, dig) laterite fom my garden to use as growbed medium (believe it's pH neutral). Do I use ecological soap to wash it and then rinse, or just rinse?

Thanks!
Los Wookie

Welcome to the forum, Wookieman!

Google tells me that laterite is a type of rocky soil, but I'm guessing you're just going for the rocks? It'll take a lot of washing to get it clean enough to use in aquaponics, but if you're up for it I'll be over here cheering you on! :headbang: As for your question, don't use soap; you don't want it getting into your water, the fish and bacteria won't like it.
