This recipe relies on one critical ingredient that may not be widely available.
2 parts Redi-Gro humus*critical-this stuff has so much good stuff plants
go crazy, i use it as a top dressing in the years i don't repot my house
1 part peat moss
1 part generic potting soil of reputable value.

this mix tends to shrink and swell due to the peat moss but even watering
prevents this from being a great problem

the humus is stinky and will stain carpets if it overflows the container.

one last thing, Redi-Gro is from Sacramento CA so I don't know how widely
they distribute their product.
