Potting soil necessary to bake?

Embarking on first indoor grow.
Many years ago when using any type of soil we had to bake it in oven to remove anything not desirable. Will be using fox farms organic. Is this still necessary?

It’s a good thing to do with any soil bought. Even the manufacturers can’t promise that the soil is bug free, so I recommend baking any soil intended to be used for growing cannabis. There are a couple good posts on the topic of baking soil on the forum.


Thanks for the info and direction. Truly appreciate the help!
