    any soil mix suggestion for Huernia zebrina

    hi all,

    surfed the web, but not finding anything definitive. all suggest some sort of standard potting mix and perlite/sand. the mix should be somwhere in 30% potting mix, and 70% perlite/sand. the thing is that potting mix should have very little peat moss as possible.

    can someone suggest some potting mix that will work well?

    I haven't found zebrina to be all that picky. Mine has been growing happily for several years now in a 50/50 mix of peat & large grade perlite.

    Mine is in a pot with a cache underneath it. The pot sits with about 1cm of clearance above the floor of the cache so that when I water, the excess can drain right through. Amusingly enough, the huernias have sent roots down into this runoff area.n
