    Everything I have and have ever had is grown in peat/perlite 50% mixture. Mine do well.

    I know that alot of cps grow in perlite and peat combo. The only thing I know is I have had really bad luck with that combo. Although I have not tried my new method that people told me (wash the peat and perlite good to get any chemicals outs).

    Heck, I don't wash mine, and the plants do okay... I guess it depends on the dirt...

    Unhappy

    Is there an 'generic' mix that all the plants can be grown in? I've seen ratios from pure peat to 50/50. I know that often the plants are all put together, so there has to be some soil mixture they all can 'tolerate.' Anybody know what the ratio is for that mixture?
