Just can't get the hang of it!
I've been researching hypertufa since the winter. Now that the temps have warmed up I have been excited to finally give it a try. My results have been terrible so far. I just cannot get it right.
I've tried various recipes but think my problem is the amount of water. I have a pot that is still damp and scratchable after 5 days. I just made another batch and tried to keep from wetting it too much. It was just too crumbly and dry to work with. It took me almost an hour to make one little bowl because I kept having to scoop it all up and wet it again. Now I'm concerned that once again I got it too wet.
I'm trying to keep the proportion of water close to what I'm using for peat and perlite. Is there a better way to figure out the amount of water to use? Suggestions would be very much appreciated!
