Shredded Cedar Mulch... oops?
Alright so I've already planted my Jaboticaba in a 24 inch pot containing peat moss, perlite, compost, and shredded cedar mulch..
I just found a thread on AL's gritty mix and eh stated cedar isnt good to grow with because of the tannins contained in the oil prevents plant growth..
what do i do now? do i chuck this medium (24 inch pot is huge.. not sure on the gallon capacity) or try and sift out the cedar shreds? or should I just toss it all on top of some of my in ground plants as a top dressing then make a new batch without the cedar?
i still have lots of peat moss and compost left, and a bag or 2 of perlite and 2 bags of decomposed granite sand..
would you guys suggest that i go out and try to find something like orchid bark or can I get by without any wood chips/bark at all for an outdoor potting medium?
i still need to plant my pickering which should arrive tomorrow..
