    Here's my own recipe for a 4 inch tall pot: About 1 inch of long fibered sphagnum for the bottom, about 2 3/4 inches of 50/50 sphagnum moss/perlite mix, 1/4 inch of washed sand.

    SandMart

    Seriously though, you can get horticultural sand from just about ANYWHERE that sells gardening supplies. So long as it's washed sand, you'll be okay. If you suspect that there are additives, you can pre-wash the stuff first under running tap water until the water is clear and then in RO/Distilled water.
