    Courtesy of Maehem. She has had comparative success against pests and diseases by using pine needles. I had a topic about it a few weeks back. It also adds to the acidic environment.

    If I had to pick two first ingredients to start with before any experimentation, those would be it. Yes, we all have different recipes, lol. Pure peat does work(a lot of the mass tissue cultured plants come in this, even giant N. 'Miranda'), though as has been pointed out, a looser mix works better for the most part.
    I like cocohusk chips, if you can get it, to mix in with perlite and sphagnum, with a pinch of peat to blend it all together.

    Cheers,

    Joe

    Yeah, but can you say it the way she says it?!

    I am stuggling to find that topic, using several different combinations. I'll keep trying, though
