Hi Heather,

I kinda made it up after reading some of the posts on free draining mixes and I use this as my typical (default) mix. Depending on the plant, I will make adjustments to the mix and make it either finer or coarser. I have quite a few clivia and they seem to prefer the coarser mix. After doing a little research on Phaedranassa, I figured they would appreciate a similar free draining and organic mix. Do you grow Phaedranassa? 

Warm Regards,

How did you come up with your planting mix?
