Cactus and Citrus Potting Mix

Anyone courageous to post and testify to its aquarium use success?

I think it's pretty similar to MGOPM, but with more sand.

I also have been considering it for riparium planter use.

Cactus and Citrus Potting Mix

Doesn't it contain a lot more wood to keep the mix drier? Might leech more tannins.

That is true, they also contain a lot of rocks. All the cactus and succulent soils I have used(I have a huge collection of succulents and cacti) contain little to no nutrients as far as emersed plants are concerned. I only have one planted tank under my belt, and I haven't used any soil in a tank, but I would stick to what has worked for others. That's just my 0.2. Hope it helps.

Regards, Patrick
