Most people are not aware that many companies that sell potting soil in Singapore actually offer soil-less mixes (yup, most soil-less mix are "sterile", void of any form of fungi and bacteria (that means also no beneficial bacteria and fungi which are needed crucially in a healthy soil)
Even soil based potting mix that are sold in Singapore can have very low count of beneficial fungi and other micro-organism either to manufacture or storage conditions that are less than ideal.

On top of that, Mycorrhizae Fungi is a specific type of Fungi that builts symbotic relationship with plant roots and extend the range of its ability to take in nutrients from a greater volume of soil that the roots can reach.
