I was given several and want to move them out of the plastic containers into terra cotta pots but I don't know what type of soil to use. Do they like well draining soil with lots of lava like I use for my cactus and succulents? Thanks for any assistance. Xuling

Cactus mix works very well for Epies. They do need fast drainage.

If I used cactus mix, I would add some vegetative matter to the mix for epies, Wood chips mixed with cut up oak leaves added to your mix would be great,. bob
I added three pictures only because the selection allowed me to! Is this a new feature?
