Al's 5-1-1 vs EB Stone Potting Soil
Is anyone familiar with both soil mixtures can tell me if they are similar? Looking at the ingredient lists, they are similar. I want to know if EB Stone Potting is a viable retail ready alternative to Al's 5-1-1. It will be used with houseplants such as peace lily.
Tapla's 5-1-1 Mix:
5 parts pine bark fines
1 part sphagnum peat
1-2 parts perlite
controlled release fertilizer (not really necessary)

A natural wetting agent, Yucca shidegera saponin, has been added to help remoisten the product.
