Just finished watching how to make seedling soil and wondering what to look for in potting soil to mix with vermicompost, sea-90, and biochar? And/Or can I just used compost in place of potting mix and add the vermicompost, sea-90, and biochar?

A standard potting mix contains peat moss, vermiculite, perlite and coco coir. These ingredients keep soil aerated while maintaining water holding capacity. If you're making your own seedling mix, you could obtain these ingredients and mix in your vermicompost, etc, but it would be easiest to buy a preblended soil mix to which you would add your fertility enhancing ingredients.
