Potting Mix

perezjuanf(10a)March 15, 2013

Since I am new at growing Passiflora I am wandering if the potting mix I prepare is good to plant passiflora seeds

1 gal of top soil
ý gal of Miracle Grow Potting Mix
ý gal of perlite

Thanks for any assistance

For seed starting I'd leave top soil out of the mix. In general I'd leave top soil out of plants in pots. Better use a potting mix.

I agree with subtrop.

For growing plants, I'm a big fan of mixing potting soil with perlite (typically 50:50). This is especially true for plants that like to be constantly moist, but not soggy (for example Tacsonias).

I prefer to control how much fertilizer I add to soil, and don't use Miracle Grow soil, perlite, etc. partly for this reason. I do use MG fertilizer, though.
