Correction on burnt soil

The bags of burnt soil sold in KL for RM 1.20 per bag actually contain about 5.3 kg of burnt soil, not 3 kg as earlier reported.

Because of the wood-ash mixed into it, burnt soil contains a useful level of potassium, one of the essential elements for plant growth. The word potassium itself is derived from 'pot ash'.
