OK, so I made my own "soil" and potted up 30 ornamental grasses and coneflowers so they have another year growing before they get in the ground, easier to maintain them potted and closer to the house, etc... Only my printed notes on the proportions got wet in the first 30 seconds and I could read it so I didn't need to come back into the house and look at my computer...
Oh, no. I should have come back into the house and looked at my computer.
Instead of 5-1-1:
5 parts pine bark fines
1 part sp. peat moss
1 part perlite
I mixed 5-5-1...
Help... how bad is it to have that much spaghum peat moss in the soil mix? Should I water more or less? Should I repot ALL of them with a better mxture (please say no, please say no!)
