Miserable peace lily + gritty mix
I've been reading lots and finally decided to register because my peace lily NEEDS HELP.
It's been having a hard time for almost a year. Leaves used to spring back up after soak its pot in water. But it slowly lost its bounce after a good soak.
So I repotted into a bigger self watering pot. No progress. And then I read peace lilies may not like self watering.
So I repotted in a regular pot filled with Miracle Gro. No progress.
So I when to repot and realized the MG was filled with fungus gnats...so I washed off all the soil I could from the roots, trimmed any brown roots and left a bunch of white ones intact. Repotted in Mel's Mix. No progress.
So guess what I did ?
I repotted, but this time tried to Gritty Mix. I had a very hard time finding the materials, so I have Reptibark, Oil Absorbent granules and 1/4" granite chips. Gave it a good soak in a dilution of Miracle Gro All Purpose since I don't have access to Foliage Pro in Montreal. Today, it is completely limp and yet the chopstick inserted to the bottom of the pot feels damp on my face.
I'll try to figure out how to post a picture. Meanwhile, Jodik, Al.... anyone else help please !
