Is this sand ok?

by EllieB » Fri Jul 26, 2019 9:19 pm

Hey! So my VFT Is going from bad to worse and I'm trying to figure out what might be the problem. I used this sand and spagnum moss when repotting. Is it the wrong sand? I bought it from a nursery and they said it was horticultural sand which I thought was ok. Thanks! ImageImage

No, that is not good sand. It's full of minerals. What you want is pool filter sand. Pool shops should have it.

Pool sand is usually available at Home Depot for around $6 for a 50 lb bag.
