Planting is much easier and plants tend to grow better in a substrate with particles smaller than 1/4 inch. Typically the rule is 1-3 mm, as I recall. As has been said many times here, plants will grow fine in many different substrates, including ordinary quartz sand, like pool filter sand. But, a substrate that contains some nutrients usually gives noticeably better growth.
