Somewhere deep in the bowels of this forum, I found a thread that I have since lost. That's really not important; all I remember is that Rex recommended that the person mix SMS with similar grain-sized sand to make it heavier so it would hold roots better. I also remember something about how there wasn't one brand that could be recommended because sand is inconsistent at different locations.
Is there any kind of label of what kind of sand this grain size might be? I am also concerned about the content of the sand; doesn't pool filter sand have a high level of silicates in it which can cause certain types of algae break out all over? Anyone have any suggestions/info?
