I've scoured google and seen many posts on the topic, most of the are pretty old but im looking to repot some pings into a at least Mostly mineral based media.
I've seen pool filter sand mentioned (#20 I believe), but i've also heard people say it's too fine. But apparently the coarser stuff is harder to find. I don't mind ordering offline if anyone knows of a good place to find some good coarse sand?
I plan on mixing it with Perilite (Maybe vermiculite, although i've heard this breaks down fast), APS or Turface, and maybe some sort of other inert minerals (Maybe pumice stone or lava rock). Doing an equal part of each. And putting everything in 4 inch pots.
But yeah this elusive sand seems quite difficult to find (Def. not anywhere around any home depot or lowes i've been too) but i'll try the pool filter sand if it works (As I know of a couple of pool supply shops).
