The plants really don't care if the mix is out by a few to a large percent either way, after all, most grow in pure peat to almost pure sand without too much detriment.Apologies accepted...I'm working through it. But,...how do you know the plants don't really care? (I think I've been watching too many "Monk" reruns...).
When it looks right, it is.
Apologies if that's thrown the OCD into overdrive.
