Gritty mix storage question

Clm128July 31, 2013

hello to all! ive just whipped up some gritty mix for my plants but i could only buy large quantities of the ingredients in my area and i was wondering about the left over mix if theres any reason why they wouldnt keep in a large plastic tubaware container with a lid on it until im ready to use them next year or whenever that may be? or will it break down on its own?

also the only granite i could find was 1/4 not 1/8`` so how will this effect my mix and will everything be okey if i just watter alittle more often?

thanks in advance
chris

Like any other type of potting soil, it can be stored indefinitely if kept dry.

The difference in grit size only makes the mix a bit more 'gritty' :-) No worries.
