Why do you not use native black soil with some cocopeat soil?

@Scorpio..
Thanks a lot for the suggetion

I am not aware if it that's why..Since this will be my first time .. I really wanna make sure the substrate is good for my plants.:-D
Now since you are suggesting it..will surely give it a thought.. :-)
Is there any document which i can read on how to prepare it?
