how much perlite?
Good Monday Morning to all!! (sorta? maybe?:))
I went out and got some perlite for some of my plants that do not seem to be drying out at all, some of the baby spiders(that one i do not understand, same soil and everything) and that includes my new Hindu Rope Hoya, the soil is still very wet after not quite a week, almost soggy, and yes, I am getting a bit concerned. My DH also bought some more soil, but it is for seeds and starters, he got it cuz it did have perlite in it already. He also got me some wood chips too.
Anyway, my question is how much perlite should I put in the soil? How much wood chips should I put in it? How big should the chips be? I cant seem to find the informaton on-line of the ratio of it. When I put it in my Rope Hoya, should I take off a lot of the wet soil? or just put it in and let it soak up.
I know, more questions. But I am getting real worried about the hoya not drying at all.
any help would be very appreciated, and thanks in advance :)
