Question for Al - Continued
Hi Al -
Sorry, I meant to hit preview and hit send instead.
I am curious if I could substitute horticultural perlite in place of granite?
Would that alter the characteristics of the mix too badly?
I have found the following potential sources for gran-i-grit:
This one has mica mixed in.
Here is another potential source - it seems this is only granite with no mica mixed in -
I can for sure get horticultural perlite locally. The granite I cannot seem to find locally. I would like to avoid shipping charges if possible.
And if it works roughly the same the perlite would be much lighter and easier to move the pot (see pruning advice post).
Thanks again for your help.
