Mandrake with gritty mix?
Hello, I just joined after finding out the gritty mix and I'm wondering about a proper mix for my mandrake plant as the peat has already compacted considerably and I'm worried about my plant.
Yesterday I checked it's roots and while it's growing, the root structure seems undeveloped with almost cero little strands of roots shooting radialy from the two main roots.
I have found mixed opinions on what type of susbtrate is ideal for the mandrake. They all agree that this plant does not like gravel in it's soil though which reminds me of another plant that a friend gave me a week ago, it's growing on a sand-clay like soil (I have found info stating that mandrake likes a more sandy substrate but I'm doubting it needs it), I'm not sure if it was uprooted from the wild, but I'd bet it was, this other plant is commonly called huevos de toro (bull's balls, but it sure looks more like dog balls lol) I think it's from the Tabernaemontana family.
