Espoma Organic Potting Mix

GrowSis(9B Inland Empire,CA)November 13, 2012

I am not going to mix my own. Really and truly I'm not. Given that limitation will the following product work to grow my (only) plant and not harm it. It's been growing in coir for 2 years and now needs to be re-potted when I take it out of dormancy next week. I just need fresh soil in a bigger pot that won't hurt my plant. I would like it to grow stronger than in the coir (which has been just fine but is not readily available) but only if I can achieve that easily/cheaply. Unfortunately the company doesn't list the product sheet so I can't investigate the ingredients. Although I am suspicious of the myco-tones. Has anyone used this one? Any wisdoms? Complaints? General reviews are good but none are Amaryllis-specific. Thanks.

If it's organic, then I suppose (guess!) it's got lots of wood, mulch, etc. Stuff that will break down. You could add inorganics to improve draining and air circulation around the roots. This would include things like: sand, perlite, decomposed granite, pea gravel, and/or "chicken grit" (I think this might be crushed oyster shells). Look at the FAQ(don't reply to it) and read the discussion on potting media. Lots of good info there!
