Ok I dont know if this would fall under beginner or advanced but I definately need some more advanced advice. There is someone I have been wanting to buy subtrate from but unfortunately they have been dealing with hurricanes and have not been responsive...who can blame them? But my need is too big now. I know the obvious answers but I want some advice on subtrate mixes that any of you know about. Im not talking plainly leaf litter for example but a real mix. The mix I bought long ago had leaves in the mix as well but any advice would be nice. Thank you in advance.
