We use a 1:1:1 soil mix of 1 part sterilized top soil, 1 part Pro Mix
BX and 1 part coarse sand. The plants are transplanted from a Metro
Mix 200 starter medium into 12" pots. At transplanting, we
incorporate a tablespoon of 19-6-12 Osmocote slow release fertilizer
and then follow up weekly with triple 20 Peters liquid fertilizer.
