Title: Re: [Aroid-l] commercial mixes- get real, learn how

I usually do not put my two cents worth in on this list...
This time I will make an exception.

In Florida (the only place that I am qualified to make a
judgement) you can obtain a job in a nursery and have a profession as
a "Grower" if you know what you are doing. You can't
get a job or a profession if you are a person who "Puts Plants in
Pots". If you are a Grower, you can grow plants in thin
air... (Hydroponics) or you can grow them in something that
might resemble a poor quality of concrete. The difference is
that you have studied your product, gained a lot of experience and
tried different things. One can learn a lot from talking with
others but the bottom line is where someone else might have success
will be your dismal failure.

So, Yes, Mix is irrelevant to knowledge that you have gained by
trial and error. It is also my experience that over the years
DOCTOR BURCH has probably forgotten more that 99% of the people on
this list will ever learn.... including me, and I am placing
myself at the top of the 99% list.
