Desert Rose with Al's gritty mix
Hey guys well I made 1 out of 3 parts of Al's mix here's a few pictures the DR. This plant was dieing due to me not knowing what sort of soil to use and the leaves were yellowing within a few days. I know better than to use Miracle Grow on anything so I opted out of the cactus pre-mix. I live in South Florida so I have only been able to locate the Repti Bark from Petsmart, and I am getting the Turface on either Tuesday or Wedsday. Can anyone tell me why Silica sand is used in place of the granite ? Also, how much of this sand is needed in the mix and how much Turface as of now I am only using the Repti bark with some Epsoma Gypsum for calcium. The plant seems to be doing much better already!
