"dry" plant question
So when I come back to college, I'm bringing back some basil, lavender, rosemary, and oregano plants. Since I'm making some mineralized top soil, what's the best mixture of vermiculite, coconut coir, topsoil, blue miracle gro powder, and calcium carbonate sand that I should use? The plants are mostly to be used to ward off bugs, but I'd also like to incorporate them into some foods that I'll cook later on in the year, which is one reason I'm making my own potting mix. Should I just make a big batch of mineralized top soil? or do I make an independent mixture for my land plants?
So many fish to keep, not enough aquaria.
