mistake in mixing 5-1-1

posted by: idabean on 05.29.2011 at 12:31 pm in Container Gardening Forum

I wasn't paying attention and mixed together turface and perlite for the 5-1-1 mix. Stopped there. I have the reptibark and sphagnum moss but I didn't want to compound my mistake.

I don't care if I make a gritty or more organic mix, I'd just like to be able to use what I put together.

Also the sphagnum I bought is 'real sphagnum' and some pieces are 2 inches long. Can I just roughly tear these apart, or leave as is for the mix?

I appreciate any advice.

Hello everyone,

I was sent a cutting from a Rhipsalis plant, however I never had have this type of succulent before. I stuck the end in some moist AV mix, for now. The top is hanging over however. Does anyone have this succulent? If so, how long before it takes root? Thanks again everyone!

Do ALL houseplants need distilled water to do well??

posted by: perennialfan273 on 09.30.2009 at 12:05 am in House Plants Forum


I have a book on houseplants, and for a lot of the plants, the book recommends to water using distilled water. What I want to know is, are there any houseplants that can tolerate tap water?? Also, does the quality of the water really make a huge difference as to how well your plant does??


al and fertilizer - good stuff!
