    Where to find serpentine substrate?

    Been scouring the web for a little serpentine substrate to experiment with. Anyone have any suggestions on where I may obtain some?

    Be difficult because it is often associated with asbestos. I think there is a serpentine based fertilizer in Australia. Check Richard Davion's videos.

    Otherwise get you shovel out (map of serpentine and ultramafic soils in the US):
