I'm a new AV owner and have received some good advice here, but I haven't had any success with Cape Cod Violetry, I think their website is down. But I did find Teas Nursery, I plan to order the Volkman Bros. AV Potting Soil - it's a 4.5 bag - it has peat moss, vermiculite, styrofoam beads, perlite, dolomitic lime & trace elements in it for $7.99.
I also found the Schultz Liquid AV Plant Food with Micronutrients, liquid water soluble, 4 oz for $3.99.
They also have 3" round white plastic AV pots for 22 cents each, the only hitch is you have to buy in quantities of 25 for $5.50 (they also carry the 4"). I emailed them and asked if I could purchase a quantity of 5, but if they will only sell in quantities of 25, does anyone want any of them? I only have 1 AV...lol.
And does all of this sound good to all you experienced AV owners? It sounds like it goes along with the advice that I've received, but a few reviews never hurt! O:))
