Well here's Joe. It has been said that for every grower there is a mix.
The formula Brian spoke of is this.
Chose a favorite potting mix
Select a pot- (4") cover the drain holes with tape and pour water in to the soil line. Invert pot pouring the liquid into a measured container noting the volume.
Fill the pot with your standart mix and drainage then slowly pour the water over the potting mix until all is used. Allow time for full absorbtion
Remove the tape frrom the pot and allow the pot to drain into the measured container. The remainder determines the soils absorbtion rate
NOW, with this choice info you can adjust the mix to suit the perceived requirements of various species.
An earlier writer correctly noted the nemise of all mixes is water.
This topic has been addressed numerous times noting that materials advocated by some are rejected resoundly by others. Good growing and Happy New year to all.
