I am interested in what your potting mix is for a mango tree?

I have grown tomatoes in this bark mix in the picture below. Provided I watered every day with a nutrient solution, this mix resulting in higher yields than any mix. A lot of watering/fertilizing though I will say.

Anyway, these bark mixes last for years, so I would figure it would be good for a tree.

A desert tumbleweed slowly tumbles by.
