waterlogged rescue & gritty mix help please
I had 2 potted Clivia's that I inherited that got hit with a deluge and the soil compacted. I gently removed them from their plastic pots and rinsed them REALLY well with water and set them in a shaded spot to dry.
I am planning on putting a 50/50 mix of Captan and Miracle Gro root mix on the roots prior to repotting but I am having a little trouble with the 1-1-1 gritty mix.
I was able to locate the poultry grit and calcined clay but as you can see from the picture, it looks like the calcined clay is going to be almost all 1/16 to maybe 3/32" whereas the poultry grit is more like 1/8". Is this going to be a problem or am over reacting? I have a bag of Repti Bark that I haven't opened yet. I'm probably going to have to bust it up with a hammer as the pieces (although uniform) appear to be about 1/4".
Advice? I need enough mix for a 12" pot and about an 8" pot...This seems to be very time consuming but I REALLY don't want to lose these.
