Fast Draining Succulent Mix
Ingredients: Akadama, Pumice, Turface, Black Lava
If you can’t find proper drainage materials locally, or you want to see what a good mix looks like, this non-organic blend is perfect to get you started with a batch of fast drying succulent soil that doubles as a lovely top dressing.
You will need to add organic soil that you can purchase here or locally. A good quality simple soil without additional fertilizer is recommended.
Lithops and other Mesembs: 10% part organic soil to 90% drainage materials.
Arid natives: 25% organic soil to 75% parts drainage materials; most succulents
Tropical natives: 40% parts organic soil to 60% parts drainage materials; Jungle cacti, Kalanchoes, Euphorbia
And yes, other plants will love it too! Bonsai, Herbs, Azaleas, Hibiscus and just about any plant that likes their soil to be airy and fast-drying around their roots. You can add more organic oil to your mix if you live in an arid climate or grow indoors. In humid climates, reduce the organic soil and add more drainage materials.
