Soilless Mix - How does it work?
I've been doing some reading the last few days on Al's gritty mix along with other gritty mix's. I understand the concept and how it helps prevent root rot by not letting water sit in the pot, however, what I don't understand is how the plants are able to have all the nutrients they need with no soil. Unless I have missed something; correct me if I'm wrong, there is no soil in the gritty mix.
Enlighten me on how my Jade plants will survive this way before I make the go ahead on re potting them all this spring. If you are unable to explain it in a post, a link to a website which does explain it would be proficient. Thanks again Garden Web. I look forward to reading your responses.
