    Aquatic Plant Soil?

    Where do you get aquatic plant soil? I hear alot of people talk about it concerning Ping's, is it worth getting if available to me? Any information or opinion is appreciated.

    Thanks

    This is the stuff I use for most of my plants: http://www.amazon.com/PondCare-187C-.../dp/B000HCKVDW


    It's usually cheaper at the nursery, though.

    Folks always say they get it at Lowe's and Home Depot. I have looked at my local stores and they have no idea what I'm talking about. Other folks will say to go to a real nursery. Well, the ones around here don't have it either. I guess I'm too far out in the sticks.
    Look for a place in your area that specializes in water features, that is small yard ponds and such, I imagine they would have it. Good luck.

    In this link it says that 'untreated' kitty litter will work fine.

    lowes/home depot in my area dont carry Turface/APS either.. I buy the Pondcare brand at a small locally owned hardwear store, but ive seen it in various plant nurseries as well.. look in places that carry pond supplies...

    I have no problem getting the Pondcare stuff or anything else in the pet trade, but there has to be a cheaper way. I will how ever end up ordering the bag designed for store use just to get the best pricing.
