Growstones has put out a new potting medum.I have a whole bag of growstones I want to experiment with.My medium now has growstones,bark and coco chips,with a bit of ogranic potting soil,which i like,but it is sometimes really a pain to get totally wet expecially in winter...it's a very free draining mix,and I dont always have time to water every hoya over the sink.What do you think of there mix?Would mixing it with coco work as good.Dont know where to get the redwood fiber at on the east coast.Let me know what you think...Here is the link http://www.growstone.com/about/products/coco-mix/ one more .. http://www.growstone.com/2013/10/growstones-coco-coir-and-re...

Hi Carol!I have a 2cf bag of the smaller growstones and just bought a 1.5 cf of this brand of loose coco coir.Im gonna mix it with the stones ,one part of each and see how it looks.i'll also add a bit of the bio char in as well.This is supposed to be a more fiberous coir and should work well with the growstones for even watering and moisture.too fine a coir might all collect at the botton with frequent watering,so i decidetdto go with this brand.A bit pricey,but i dont want to deal with the hassel of pre soaking the dry bricks.I plan on trying this mix with a few rooted cuttings this spring. here is the link http://www.botanicare.com/Cocogroreg-Coir-Fiber-P69.aspx
