ready to move on to 5-1-1 a few questions
I was concentrating so hard on the gritty mix, that 5-1-1 escaped me completely.
1. could someone post a link to succinct description of 5-1-1 mix, when it should be used, and how There must be a thousand posts about it on "search" so if someone has a direct link, I'd appreciate it.
2. Do I have this right: Gritty mix is 1-1-1 and very free draining with only 1 part organic matter (fines) and more frequently for houseplants?
3: 5-1-1 Has higher organic proportion, specifically 5parts to one part each of other two ingredients, which I believe are perlite and sphagnum peat moss. I'm not clear yet on lime or a complete plant food dyna-grow...that's a detail !
4. If I am transplanting divisions or seedlings (from a mother plant) do I go to gritty first; then if I need to pot on, can I keep them in gritty or move to 5-1-1 (I'm pretty sure I read I can keep them in the grit)
I'm sure all the questions have been answered dozens of times. Is there a FAQ section on this forum?
Thanks for being so patient!
