Is the 5-1-1 mix ok for SWC's?
As you can see from the photo, I use a bunch of 5-gallon pail self-watering containers (SWC's). I'd like to get away from the expensive commercial mixes I'm presently using, but my previous attempts to make my own mix using pine bark fines failed to provide the wicking needed for this type container.
I've read all the past and present threads on the 5-1-1 mix, but see little reference to its use in SWC's. I'd like to go this route, but I'm looking for a little feedback from those who have used it in SWC's
