    ^ Mobile, I tried that after reading you say the same thing a while back! My P. 'Wesser' keeps on making baby plants on its own, without taking pullings LOL! It works very well!

    I forgot that I had mentioned that before. I guess that it might have been in the same post as I mentioned diatomaceous earth cat litter as a growing medium.

    I use since many years cat liter without problem but not only I add always river sand for a better capillarity .

    I add also pouzzolane for the substrate aeration , vermiculite for a substrate more heterogen , calcareous sand to reinforce the alcalin notion , and now 'akadama' (bonzaï clay) for the clayed notion.

    good try with this hydrolite

    your ping are under some neon, they are very red

    Experiment outcome thus far:

    Total failure

    As of tonight I moved all the pings on the new mix back to their old media. Each plant was on the brink of death. Hope they make a rebound.

    for me your granulimetry was too big for a good capillarity , mix this hydrolite with river sand , you will have better result.
