    Mine are in 50/50 peat and perlite in a west window. They do just fine. In the hottest months I close a sheer curtain across the window to reduce the Sun intensity.

    I've also tried a variety of combinations, including APS. I've pretty much settled in on sand, perlite, and egg shells.

    What about equal parts washed silica sand and washed river pebbles? Does this sound like it would work?

    Bonjour

    si ton sable a été roulé par l'eau de rivieres les arêtes seront moins vives et donc abimeront moins tes plantes.

    In case you don't speak French or Google translate doesn't pan out, he said that if the sand was sand that had been smoothed out by ruining water (like a river) then it would be less likely to damage your plant's roots
