That's ugly. I get internet back today and that's the photo you post.

I was really hoping your cactus mix was going to perform well and other members could simply follow your lead.

Substrate is so very important even though it only comes down to air and moisture. A good substrate should perform flawlessly 100% of the time.

Here's another variegated plant I found today, it's bulbs are smaller than garbanzo beans when I plant them in clean coarse sand but they love all that air.

If you want to give it another shot, I'll send another one but only if you'd try a different substrate.

I really enjoy working with these tiny variegated Florida.

Definitely want to try again. Based on your results, looks like coarse sand is the way to go. I have a bag of pool sand in my shed, jk.

What grain size do you recommend?
pool filter sand/silica sand; there have been people here that have used it, but i tried it and found it stays to wet.

what you want is an aggregate that is about half the size of your little fingernail. what you might try is aquarium gravel. but do not use the smooth surface gravel [looks like river rock], that stays to wet. use the rough irregular aquarium gravel that looks somewhat similar to what he is using.

also you will have better results with a 2 1/2 gallon pot versus a small pot.

Perhaps you can try “construction sand”. Its a coarser sand that you can find at landscaping places. They use it in chicken coops as well.

PR,

I’m willing to try if possible.

One of the great things about the destructive force of hurricanes is it leaves behind plenty of easily accessible sand and after it's cleaned and classified we have an abundance of clean coarse sand.

When the screen is put under water the smaller grains of sand will fall out.

The finer grains of sand do hold more moisture and that is because of the greater surface area.

You're in a very dry climate so maybe pool sand would be better than coarse sand.

I probably should send a pear of Florida.

no, i did alot of enviromental well drilling using silica sand, 20/30... 60/ 40 to name a few. you really have to know what you are doing with it [silica sand] before planting bananas in it. silica sand will let water pass thru readily but stays to wet. corms do not take in water, roots do.???

If you prefer to wait until spring that's fine.
