I'm interested in soil mixtures too.  The plants I buy usually have some

only bark-like materials I can ever find are pine or cypress (which is a
pine, perhaps?) used for decorative mulching.
What is this bark growers use, and is it available on a retail basis?
My apologies to Dewey Fisk, who told me what he uses.... I should have
