KiS Organics Biochar Soil Mix is is our premium soil. It offers all the rewards of our Water Only soil with the added benefit of Biochar at 8% of total media. Biochar raises carbon levels and CEC (ability of the soil to retain nutrients), provides habitat for beneficial microorganisms, increases water hold capacity, and much more. This mix is designed for heavy feeding crops and the biochar really shines in hot dry climates for moisture control as well as microbial enhancements.
100% natural and organic ingredients, no synthetic chemicals.
Here at KiS, we have made the extra steps to register our soil as fertilizer due to the high level of fertility we have added to the mix. Our Biochar Soil Mix is registered for organic use in organic production with CDFA, Oregon Tilth and Certified KIND.
We have taken a lot of time, research and lab testing to perfect our soil mixes from the beginning. We use high quality amendments that work together to create balanced, nutrient dense, biologically active and diverse soil mixes. Our soils have a high ratio of ingredients compared to all the other soils on the market and all our mixes are ready to use.
The unique combination of minerals and biochar and our manipulation of pH have allowed our growers to pass all heavy metal testing in numerous states since the original formulation of our recipe. Any heavy metals present in the formulation have been tested and proven to be relatively unavailable to the plant.
Bottled nutrients are not required and there is no need to worry about burning your plants - just plant and water until next harvest. This soil mix has all the beneficial biology, nutrients, and minerals your plant needs to be happy and healthy for several months.
Additional advantages of our soil mix:
- We use lab and microscope tested compost and peat to ensure good biological activity.
- We inoculate our soil mix with additional microorganisms to further increase microbial life and nutrient cycling.
- No need for further nutrients or fertilizer, saving you tons of money! That being said, we do have an advanced nutrient schedule available on our blog (click here).
- Can be reused over and over again, with only small amendments between cycles. We have tested and re-amended the soil up to 5 years in indoor beds.
- Can be used indoors or outdoors, though keep in mind that this soil is alive and there will be some insects and other small organisms in the soil. This is necessary to maintain a healthy soil food web and achieve proper nutrient cycling. You don’t want a sterile soil for organic gardening/growing!

SUGGESTED APPLICATIONS AND TIPS
We recommend a minimum of 7 gallon containers for maximum benefit on a full cycle plant.
For indoor growing environments, use 60-90 gallons of soil per light.
Water frequently to keep the soil evenly moist. For best results, keep soil near field capacity. To test the soil, take a handful and squeeze it firmly. If only a drop of two of water comes out, then the soil is near capacity.
When using a moisture meter aim for 80-120 mbar; for best results use Tropf Blumat irrigation.
If you wish to add additional nutrients, please refer to the rest of our product line or use other nutrients at 1/4 of their recommended rate.
NOTE: If growing a larger plant in a small container, you will need to top dress weekly with our KiS Organics Nutrient Pack to achieve optimal plant growth.
All our soil mixes are available in bulk. Minimum bulk order is 1 cubic yard and we offer discounts on larger quantity orders.
Bulk pricing is available HERE.
Please note that bulk orders cannot be purchased via the shopping cart. Please fill in the Bulk Order Form with your details and a member of our team will get back to you with a personalized quote.
Due to high shipping costs to some parts of the US (due to the weight of the soil), we also offer our Nutrient pack for those who prefer to make their own organic living soil using locally sourced inputs.
Pick up is available at a selection of local WA locations. These orders will need to be fulfilled with us directly. Please call 425.558.0990 or email email@example.com with any inquiries, to process your payment and book an in-person appointment.

Outstanding hands-down the best
This is the best soil out of the bag hands-down !!!! whatever you decide to grow in this nutrient rich living soil with bio char will flourish. There are a lot of other quality soils on the market but I have seen the best results with this product. The healthiest Lush green leaves and vigorous growth is amazing. Extremely high-quality thank you Tad and the Kis team
Best soil in the game
Just water from beginning to end and excellent customer service
So I did a comparison run with KIS Biochar super soil and another famous super soil brand. The plant in KIS biochar is triple the size in volume and almost a foot taller in VEG. Now, I have a dilemma because the KIS biochar plant is absolutely ready for flowering but the other plants aren't big enough yet and if I wait for them to catch up, the KIS biochar plant will be 6 feet tall if I flip to flower later. Summary: Don't compare KIS Organics Biochar soil because this stuff is in a league of its own.
Unparalleled products and Customer Service.
I purchased the Biochar & Veggie soil mixes for my house plants (mixed 50/50). The growth performance was noticed within ten days and is almost comically unrealistic after three weeks. My friends think I'm a flipping botanist! Without any drop in enthusiasm, I must recognize the extraordinary customer service. They took time to answer some questions before I made my purchases and accepted the return of a product I purchased by mistake for a 100% full refund. My original order was short one item, so I messaged after 5 pm on a Friday, STILL got a follow-up after hours, and when my final item arrived, I got a handwritten letter saying, "We're sorry!" Seriously, I didn't even know customer service like this still existed. I absolutely recommend you invest in your interest, here.
