Gritty mix all the rage?
I am looking at my repotting project, and I felt the 5-1-1 mix was more suited to several of my thirstier, faster growing plants that I tend to repot yearly or every other. However, I have my snake plant, and my jade, and I'm thinking that the gritty mix is probably more suitable to these two. Now, my question is, does the gritty mix honestly hold the moisture enough that I won't be wielding the watering can daily, wasting my liquid gold FP 9-3-6?? I am concerned about my water running right through it, and becoming more of a burden. For example, in the past, I'd pop my jade into some bagged cactus mix, and I hated it. I felt like it was bone dry the day after I watered, because jades tend to be thirsty when growing rampant. I just want to be sure I am going to like it, and might need some tips on watering with this stuff.
