Good soil mix for repotting Indoor Jade plant (2-3 feet tall)
We recently got a jade plant from a friend and it's getting top heavy and we need to repot it in a bigger pot. I am looking for a good soil mix, and different sources on this forum have different suggestions. I am not an expert in making my own soil mixes and may not have the time to do something elaborate (which involves buying lots of ingredients :-) But i do want to do spend some time doing close to the best thing out there.
What I am thinking of right now - based on what I have read so far - is 1 inch of pea gravel right at the bottom and the actual soil would be a 1:1 mix of perlite and Miracle-Gro Cactus Palm and Citrus Soil available at Home-Depot. My questions:
1) Does this seem like a reasonable mix? And ok to have pea gravel only right at the bottom?
2) Can I get pea gravel in a small bag from somewhere? Is it available in Target or something? Seems like I may not need as much.
