    Being non-toxic to kids is not the same as being non-toxic to CPs. It could contain materials that increase TDS drastically...

    God..... The sand makes the medium shrink down, I'm going all peat. The rain moistened it for me. But the peat will make the plant divide more, but no average-big traps, I at least want a 1 inch trap....

    They do sell silica sands, but make sure you read the bag as they sell sand with alot of other things in there too.

    Here is a link to the MSDS and data sheet for the sands. http://www.quikrete.com/ProductLines...rcialGrade.asp

    I bought a bag of the medium to test out and so far so good. But like everything its only been 2 months or so, I like this sand much better than any play sand I've tried.

    For easy reference, they sale 3 grades.

    Coarse (0.7-0.6 mm)
    Medium (0.5-0.3 mm)
    Fine (0.6-0.2 mm)

    Timmy - the sand doesnt make the medium shrink down, the water does
    when peat is dry, it is fluffy if it is not packed into a solid brick, and it cant be in a solid brick if you mixed the sand in, when it gets wet, it compacts, just add more media to the pot....

    I WAS going to make a rebuttal, but then I started thinking about the white residue, the algae and moss, and about the limp leucos.

    I humbly go, now, to hunt some crows.

    I am going to have a very busy day this fall, re-potting hundreds of plants, AND the whole bog.

    I use:
    http://www.quikrete.com/ProductLines...remiumPlay.asp

    so far no problems. has a nice mix of sizes but may be a bit on the small size. So for media that needs a bit more drainage I add some lava rock or perlite.
