growing succulents in humid louisiana...help!
Alright this is my first post and before this I have been doing tons of reading through the other posts to avoid asking redundant questions. I live in Louisiana where it is really humid right now. I bought some succulents with out knowing fully what the requirements for soil were. I originally used about half of miracle grow moisture control and 1/3-1/2 perlite. Well my plants have gone down hill. Lost some to root rot because of too much moisture in the soil. As you can see from my pics I have them planted in the center in a wooden box that has multiple drain holes. I have since unpotted everything and i am letting them lay out for a few until i can figure out my soil requirements. From what I read, for the easiest and cheapest soil formula, is to use C&S soil mixture with perlite. My question is will this be good enough for me with how humid it is? Or should I add something additional? REMEMBER I would prefer suggestions of materials that I've actually heard of and can get pretty easily. Thanks!
