    50% peat 30% sand 20% perlite. Its really a matter of what I scoop or have in hand....I think you might be good with a 50 40 10 ratio too.

    One item. Silica sand is quartz-based granules. And being that it's quartz, it doesn't have harmful additions (e.g. salt) that you'd find in river or beach sand.

    Silica sand is often used in sand blasting and in making glass.

    In horticulture, it makes a great neutral soil additive for aeration and drainage.
