Problem with Gritty Mix
I've recently poured through many of Al's posts in regards to the proper soil structures and have since transplanted many of my house plants into his "gritty mix." It's been a few weeks thus far and I've noticed a bit of a problem. This stuff drains so fast and drys up so quick that by the time I have to water again, I still have a tray full of water underneath the plant that I now have to get rid of.
If this is the way it's supposed to be, it seems like a bunch of unnecessary work, especially seeing as they were all thriving to begin with.
Should I not water as much when I do water?
I understand the purpose of this soil type, and it works great for that, but if I'm gonna have to go around dumping trays of water out before each watering, I'm thinking of going back to potting soil......
