This is a chirita tamiana grown from seed. I am just realizing as I am posting pictures that big standard African Violets and the big big Chiritas (not like this one) I get frustrated as i can't find a soil that drains well enough and fast enough.

Question though. If I follow your recipe and use the right fertilizers do you think the problems I am having with drainage for the large african violets will be solved? Also, I have very alkaline water so do I still need to use lime or dolomite or whatever it is called.
