imitation 5-1-1 mix?
ingredients for al's mix are impossible to find in the hinterlands. [90m to the nearest garden center]
but, i can get miracle
grow potting mix and perlite.
altho this is heresy on this site, it seems to me that mixing the 2 in some proportion should yield the same soil consistancy as 5-1-1, even if the mix is mostly perlite.
is this not so, or am i missing something?
