Turface to Grit Ratio for Large Jade Plant
I've decided that my large Jade that is in turface mixed with 10% compost is too wet and that I have to change it. I was thinking of using just grit and Turface for better support.
I wasn't sure if / why the pine bark was necessary, but found this in a message from last year:
> The only two reasons I use bark in my soils are to lower
> pH and because it's much less expensive than Turface
> or granite by volume.
> I have some pines and junipers, a Santolina
> chamaecyparissus ..... growing in a mix of nothing
> but Turface and granite .... and several other
So 2 questions:
What would be a good ratio of grit (assuming #2) to Turface for a large Jade?
Do I need to adjust the PH, and if so, what do I add to the mix?
