Pine bark fines for gritty mix/511?
I have been using gritty mix for almost 1 year now. I just could not find a resource/ products for the pine bark fines. i was settled with reptibark although it is quite expensive for my budget. but after a couple incidents of thirsty plants, I realized that the reptibark is much larger than the mix required. (And it is, the barks all float to the top if I shake the mix in the pot/ or when I water it with a lot of water)
I have acquired a few plants in the winter that need repot deparately, and I set out for the barks hunting task again. I saw a timberline pine bark in bbs and remember somebody said it can be used. But after open the bag, it is different then a pine bark for the mix I had imaged. can anybody give me an opinion here, or if you know any resource that I can locate the pine bark fines/ or any product that is suitable for pine barks, it would be deeply appreciated. I live in Rhode Island , but places in west ct and ma would do too. Thanks a lot
