I actually for to mention to them about the coconut coir, peat moss , vermiculite molasses and azomite. I don't know I was thinking. for the soil food web report it didn't matter. anyway, there the results. hope it helpful to see the two different results. I was excited to see that my soilless medium  acted like a loam.

It is interesting to know that if the Soil Food Web is disturbed the plants do not do too well until the soil recovers.

It makes sense to me to realise that if their world is disturbed it is like us when we have floods and landslides and earthquakes.

It puts a different complexion on digging and roto-tilling

Thanks for all the information has55 and sanderson.

As a chemist who used to work in for a USA ARS lab while in college I find all of that very interesting!  I actually perform some soil testing at work now, but someone else extracts everything first and hands me the sample as a water sample.  So I don't know the process from start to finish to test my own MM unfortunately...
