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
