I think it looks great!

I'm in Arizona and you'd think being in the desert there would be plenty of places to find granite, but nope. lol..


RE: Another gritty mix question!!!

Lol granite was the easy one the right bark took a while for me

RE: Another gritty mix question!!!

I agree that it looks great! Before using, I would moisten the mix so that the bark is saturated prior to potting.


RE: Another gritty mix question!!!

LOL! Funny how it is trying to find the right stuff for the mix. But so worth it in the end!!
Your plants will love it!

What will you be putting in this?


RE: Another gritty mix question!!!

The pine bark fines are all but non-existent around here. I however have gone bark free a few years ago, using a 50/50 turface/granite mix, and like the gritty mix a lot more that way.


RE: Another gritty mix question!!!

Looks good to me but stuff is so hard to find I'm usually stuck with thebasic peat/ perlite and whatnot, but finding just straight perlite that isn't in a bag the size of my couch seems to be a big big hunt, unless i buy it online its pretty much non existent!

Hey, btw did u get my e-mail yet...i sent a few using your email from your page on HERE. ..hope that's the right one. Super excited for your plant! Lol
