    Petiolaris complex plants - lava/red clay media

    I found four lava or red clay media sitting in my growing area. From top left clockwise: lava sand, red lava, unlabelled, burnt earth (fire kilned red clay)


    Considering input from jimscott and kulamauiman, I potted three simlar size D. dilatato-petiolaris plants in three different media (lava sand, red lava and burnt earth - all individually mixed with peat and sand).

    So - four different completely inorganic media? Very interesting. The plants certainly look cool planted that way.

    Hi Max,

    It's inorganic + peat/sand. 1:1 and three of the media were used as I find the red lava pieces too big and intimidating for the puny plant. LOL

    I checked them 5 mins ago and the leaves are all turgid...will post pics in a week or two.

    Oops! I guess I could've read that the first time you said it.

    'Looking forward to the results.

    I am hoping that the hammer is to break up the lava rock. If not - "Ouch!"
