So while stopping by the store to pick up a few things, I wandered into the bird section of the pet aisle and found this. Now I'm curious if this could be used in a Mexican ping substrate. Probably not due to not knowing how the other ingredients would affect the plant but who knows? Unfortunately I don't have any extra pings to use as guinea pigs right now to test myself.
