thinking of using Thrifty-ZORB/SMS

I have 80# of the stuff and am going to be putting it on top of MTS..This is a question for those of you who already have it..How long have you had it in your tank,and how is it working out for you???This is also from what I can tell SMS basically.So I would also like to hear about those reports..

SO,is it turning to mud?is it staying solid,is it a mess to deal with??Does it get heavier and not float around so much??How long did it take to get heavier??
Thanks,
Zen

I assume this is the same as OILDri? I have oildri and it works great at 2 months.

Test it out by getting a zip lock bag full wet, then freezing, thawing, freezing. If it breaks down, save your time and use actual SMS. The oil dri products are not fired as hot as the others.

Can't take credit for it. Found it when looking for bonsai soil.
