Re: Soilless mix

The only thing I would add to this excellent advise
is this: when anything is grown in a container, modifications must occur
because the limited space the media occupies dramatically alters water drainage,
CEC, ability of the media to maintain an even temperature, etc.

Subject: Soilless mix
In the discussions
about the minutiea of mix parts and types no mention of watering habits
has been made. It is the water not the mix that is damaging. While
a porous mix is critcal it need not neccessarily be any different than the
soil in which it growes naturally. The right balance is
important but in it's absence prudent watering can also solve problems.
Determine the moisture holding capacity of the mix based on the plants
need and adjust accordingly Good growing Joe
