Roots love the Gritty Mix

kernul1May 2, 2011

I thought this was a pretty cool picture of how well roots enjoy the gritty mix. I had transplanted this huechera into gritty mix about two months ago.

I wanted to move it to a different container and so I pulled it out and was just amazed at how much fresh, healthy root growth it had put on. Good stuff!

Beautiful root system! Look at those healthy things! Good work! :-)

Yes, it's true... a more durable, open medium IS the difference between mediocre and fantastic! :-)
