Soil cubes are are little blocks of soil used to start seeds. The roots air prune themselves, as long as the cubes are not touching, then the roots can grow into the cube beside it. It is easier on the plants because there is no root shock when transplanting. You don't have to peel the bottom off the containers that decompose.
From my various readings, to make soil cubes, you simply mix water with your seed starting soil until it becomes the consistency of oatmeal. I am not interested in using peat, since it is not considered a renewable resource.
Soil cube makers can save you money since you can use it over and over.
Maybe I will be able to post a tutorial later. I have tried to contact Daily Bread Living's blogger for more information.
I'll call this entry: To Be Continued...
