I'm thinking of repotting cybisters and want to use a better mix than what I have now which is sharp but better suited to forest growing hippeastrums. I was thinking of introducing some chicken grit. I'd appreciate comments about what works for other people for this species and any comments as to using chicken grit for hippeastrums. 
What do these plants grow in, in their native habitat, did I see or read that it is a heavy type of sand, in mountain and with very little rainfall?
