Only have potting soil on hand please help
Hey folks. I recently bought a palm (washingtonia robusta, i.e. Mexican Fan palm natty habitat coast and inland Mexico/southwest U.S.) and I want to keep it in a large container cuz it won't thrive in ground up here on the "wetcoast". Anyway when I do containers I usually use potting mix. But the other day when I was out with the wife since she is a very confusing person (yeah gotta blame the wife hehe) I mistakenly grabbed the wrong bag of medium and picked up potting soil. I don't want to have to make a trip 20 miles one way back to the store to exchange it and was wondering if it is still useable for my purpose. I am trying to create a mix that drains well but not dries out to quickly. These palms love water but hate wet feet. I want to use what I already have on hand. So what I was planning on using in the potting soil is conifer bark fines and perlite in abundance hoping to get what I want. What do yall think? Am I on the right track? Sorry for the long post.
