You can add a little (5-10% of total) peat moss to the mix. My conditions
are also neutral to alkaline and tecohilaeas grow fine. I use a sandy mix
but with a lot of pumice for drainage, about 2/3 or more of the total. An
acidic fertilizer also helps drop alkilinity.

Where there is much desire to learn, there of necessity will be much
arguing, much writing, many opinions; for opinion in good men is but
knowledge in the making.
