newbie overwhelmed by gritty mix info
Gritty mix is new to me, and finding and mixing the ingredients seems like more than I can take on! It's the dead of winter in Massachusetts; there's a new 18 inches of snow, all the spaceI have a kitchen table to work on and my storage is in the basement....involving a very steep flight of stairs.
What is the simplest way to get the ingredients for this miracle mix? Is there an acceptable mix to which particular materials can be added for a good approximation of gritty mix?
I'm not a professional, so I don't need to start with a huge quantity.
Other than an amaryllis and orchid or two I've killed recently, I haven'tbeen serious about houseplants in decades.
However, I have six amaryllis and a beautiful orchid I've made a commitment to, and I'm willing to get serious.
I am an experienced outdoor gardener and used to experimenting and taking losses philosophically. But for some reason, I'm intimidated by this!
