Re: So...

The HD here and the upscale garden center [where I got the variegated schefflera] both carry perlite in big bags--as big as a bale of Canadian peat. Way more than I would ever use, so can't be specific about the volume or cost.

Think outside the big box stores for this one, Rich.
Look in the yellow pages for hort supplier, give them a call. Large bag is about $12 to $20 depending. You will find that a bag goes a very long way since it only one of three basic parts of the mix for hypertufa. You are not purchasing by weight... volume. You an also use vermiculate... but we do not care for that one or its finish.

Hi Gene,

I'd really like to try the hypertufa thing, but can't seem to find perlite
around here at a reasonable price or in more than "baby" size bags. Got any
ideas? Thanks, Rich in Z-5
