ADA's Power Sand Special is a very good base. Not only is it a an enriched base but it also contains micro bacteria colonies that help root growth and health. I highly recommend it.

I have mixed my own to cut cost with river sand and JBL's Florapur. JBL's florapur is basically clay and fertilizer that is phosphate and nitrate free. I topped them with ADA's Aquasoil.
