    Thanks for the information Steve!I wash most of my soil mix,but not always.Plants that grow outside,I hardly ever wash the peat and sand.I just built a bog a few months ago and did'nt feel like rinsing 4 1/2 bales of sphagnum peat moss and 4 50 pound bags of sand.

    I wondered about this myself... In nature, a lot of temperate dews grow on swamps, on sphagnum sometimes up to 10meters thick... and the water sure isnt even close to pure... last time I checked swamp water it had MAJOR bit of Fe in it. I'm also pretty sure it has some methane disolved in it as well as a load of other minerals and salts... so I'm just wondering... does it really matter? maybe sphagnum plays a role as a purifier? who knows...
    It is hard to always be a human being... people get in the way.

    I always try to avoid Miracle gro, Scotts, and Schultz peat and perlite, just because those companies also manufacture fertilizers and try to infuse all their products with it.

    I'm not sure if a person can compare a large bog out in nature with a small pot full of peat and perlite. Salts and minerals build up quickly in small pots.

    What I've read is that it should be no higher then 100 PPM. 50 PPM and lower being optimal.
