Someone had posted a homemade recipe for cactus / succulent growing medium mix . Does anyone remember where it was posted ??? OR what the recipe was ??? Please email me in case I get caught up in life's hectic day to day activities . TIA !!
I have this recipe in my gardening file, hope it helps you.
A native soil mix: 40% topsoil (sandy loam from your property), 20% sand, 20% 3/8" gravel, and 20% perlite. I'd advise not using peat-based soil mixes, try some topsoil from your yard. If you're worried about weeds, seeds or pests, bake it in a covered pan at 180F for an hour and a half prior to use. (Only problem is if you bake soil in your oven or microwave it absolutely STINKS the house out, also makes your ovens unusable again)
