Im a new user hello everyone. Ive been more than ridiculously lucky with plants of any kind they just grow. Ive had bonsai trees before but i recently began to grow them from seeds. I have a Redwood that sprouted and I have no idea what type of soil would best be suited for its growth i would really appreciate any information that anyone has to offer thanx

I have several little Dawn Redwoods that are in regular potting soil that are doing quite well... and we have some at the university here (I found my the seeds for my redwoods under those trees!) that are doing well just in our regular old Pennsylvania soil.

Here's something I found online that might help! :)

This tree tolerates some drought occasional wetness, ozone and some salt. It prefers a well-drained, loamy, sandy or clay soil with a pH of acidic to slightly alkaline. (6.8-7.7) Do not plant in soil with a high pH
