    Jcal I got that same silica sand in two sizes, co**** and medium. I use medium in my mix with peat and co**** for dressing. Agri supply on east coast carries it. Don't thin there is one in your state but VA, GA, NC and SC has agri location. Usually have to only wash it a little bit with 2ppm after 3 washes tap water then two distilled washes. Have not tested it before tap washes though.

    Southern products & silica co.
    50LB bags extra fine, fine, medium and co**** sometimes they have extra co****.

    We actually ended up discussing it in another thread. The end of the word is British slang for your rear end. You'd think the forum software would have an exception for co**** though.

    Hi there,

    Just wanted to post a picture of my cephalotus plant that was recently replanted and was recovering from stress:



    It is doing rather well I think. There are atleast two new growth points and it is pushing several cute and hairy pitchers. Thank you all for your help!

    Jcal if you still looking for some silica sand products. I found an old survey of mines on the east coast, might be able to see if the ones near you sell it still. The silica sand company I mentioned before has been operating since that survey was done on the mines.

    Can't seem to find anything on the sewanee silica sand conglomerate. I'm looking around to see what might be marketed as retail.

    This sand looks like the aquarium gravel I used to use when in High School in the late 1960's. At the time it was called "#3 quartz". It was the standard aquarium gravel. $0.05 per lb. Now there are many high tech substrates sold by various companies for aquatic gardening.

    Try searching for filter sands. It does come in various grades. Almost all are quartz/silica so they don't dissolve over time. I use a coarser sand/gravel at the bottom of Ion Exchange cylinders to enable better water distribution.
