Fafard Soil Conditioner alternatives?

Post  ericksond on Tue Jun 05, 2012 2:10 pm

What other alternatives are there for the Fafard Soil Conditioner? I can't seem to find one in any of the nurseries around.

Also the lava rock that I see from the nurseries are 1-2 inch thick. Do I really have to crush/grind them manually?

BTW I went through hell and back to find Turface MVP. The moment I found one I bought 4 sacks. What a Face

Any help appreciated, thank you.

I do not know exactly which conditioner you are talking about but I found "PermaTill" at Merrifield garden center, it says "Expanded Slate" Which I use as a replaccement for Haydite which I cannot find here. I use it in combination with Turface and Composted bark.

Thanks Gri. I think the PermaTill is probably a good alternative to the red lava rocks.

The Fafard soil conditioner I believe consists of pine barks.

I found a good source of bonsai supplies in Miami! It is called OFE International down in Kendall.

www.ofe-intl.com

They had the Fafard soil conditioner. They also sell a good alternative to red lava rocks. However, they do sell red lava rocks but they just did not have one in stock.

FYI to those in Miami wondering where to find stuff.
