Sorry to dissent on the 'popcorn' or 'peanut' medium placed in
the bottom of pots. The first time I saw same, I was shocked. The roots
hadn't grown into the stuff, and when I unpotted whatever was in the pot,
the stuff spilled and blew around everywhere, tackying up my yard and the
neighbor's. No thanks! I hope I never find this stuff in the bottom of a
pot ever again!!
