    ...Define "sand" please... What type of sand? Just plain, normal sand? Beach sand, no wait... Too much salt...

    I have peat...
    I have perlite...
    Even vermiculite...
    Horticultural charcoal... dunno where to find that...
    And it was of my understanding that peat moss and sphagnum were the same thing... What is it if not?

    So, its about fiber size... Okey, I know they only sell peat moss... The thing with this materials is that you cant find them easily here... In fact the peat and perlite I have had to be sent from another state... Any other options?
    As for silica... Like the one used for aquariums?

    It's also used in swimming pool sand filters so, anywhere that sells pool supplies should have it.

    I originally grew my Cephalotus in a mix of five parts perlite to four parts peat. It worked fine but if you can get silica that would be better.

    I'll check the pool stores... There are only 2 in the city...
    As for the silica, I think a pet shop...

    It'll be a lot cheaper at the pool places.
