| | Re: What Soil do you Recomend?
If you like to experiment, to try to nudge the frontiers of this hobby a little bit, you can try things like Soilmaster, or Zeolite Sand, or some other substrate-like material sold for uses other than aquariums. Or, you can go really inexpensive and use ordinary quartz sand, perhaps with garden soil mixed into the bottom half of the substrate thickness. I can't remember anyone discovering that a substrate material just wont work - there are just so many different materials that can be used to grow plants. How about cow manure under sand, for example?
