How to make your own succulent and cactus soil (and FAQs)

It’s time to make a fresh demo vid on how to make your own succulent and cactus soil so here we go! I also answer some viewer questions at the end of the video so be sure to watch to the end.

About the materials used: I have links and store locators on my webpage at – Please check out the photo of the different sizes of Turface I referred to there. I use the MVP because that’s all my local shop supplies but the MLB would work as well. It’s also sold as ‘porous ceramic soil conditioner’ under the brand Profile and others.
