    Wistuba delux heli mix, need translated from french

    débris de liège 2 cm / écorce de pin 2 cm / billes de polystyrène / grains de charbon de bois, diamètre : 5mm / tourbe (6:4:4:1:1)

    the online utilities translate the first ingredient as being cork, but when I try to find a source for horticultural grade ground cork I come up empty, sooooo maybe something is getting lost in the trans LOL

    TIA,
    Av

    (just doing my homework....)

    cork remains 2 cm pieces, 6 parts
    Pine bark 2 cm pieces, 4 parts
    polystyrene chips, 4 parts
    charcoal 5mm pieces, 1 part
    peat 1 part

    It doesn't actually say the word pieces, and I used the Google translator. I guess if you needed just a little you could chop a sheet of untreated cork into 4-8 pieces then spin it around the blender to the consistency you want.

    another version of his deluxe mix:

    1 part Cork
    2 parts Pine Bark
    2 parts Meranti wood shavings (Cypress maybe?)
    1 part polystyrene foam (fine)
    1 part polystyrene foam (coarse)
    0.5 part charcoal (fine)
    0.5 part peat

    CPN Vol. 19 pages 44-45

    Meranti
