    Reuse of potting soil recommended?

    Hi Guys, I'd like to hear your opinion if it is reasonable to reuse the potting soil of a recently harvested plant/bucket? My plan is to cut the whole clump of soil and root into smaller chunks and put everything on the compost for a few weeks. Good idea?
