Stone layer

4 years 10 months ago #48629 by Jon
Hi all,

I have a quick question regarding drainage!
If I were to use 70% Diatomite & 30% potting mix for my potting options, will I need to add a small layer of small stones to help with the drainage, or with the amount of Diatomite be enough?

Regards
Jon

No need for layer of stones with that mix. I do 50/50 and have no issues.

Always good to give the Diatomite a rinse especially if using a bonsai pot to ensure the drainage does not get clogged with the dust.
