To screen or not to screen?
So, when I brought all of my plants inside this fall, I took a few cuttings in order to make everything "fit" in my bay windows. They are now ready to pot, and I am planning on eventually switching to the gritty mix, but it will have to wait til spring, when I will have a little more time on my hands. For now, I found a bonsai store in town where I can buy turface. I will start these babies in turface only to get them going, and will repot them with gritty mix. I know that unscreened turface will retain more water than screened, but how much more? My schedule is a little crazy until about April, so I can ensure that plants will get watered at least every 7 days if they need it, but can't always water more frequently than that. Should I screen or not?
