Hello to all. I was wanting to make some of my own soil. Does anyone know of anywhere near charlotte, nc that sells calcined clay, or does everyone just order it online? I am open to any type of clay product. Seramis, etc. Thanks for any help.

Have you considered using just pure lava?

Actually, lava is what i used to use when i first started growing years ago, but havent been able to find any smaller than about 3/4" and larger. I tried breaking it up into smaller pieces, but took forever. I havent tried very hard to locate it in smaller sizes. Then when i see what everyone else is using, i didnt give it another thought. Ive been using a mix that is 40% diabase granite, 40% haydite, and 20% pine bark. I really like it, but cant find the granite in small pieces. So, here we are. Thanks alot for the john deere numbers. I actually have one here in mooresville, and its pretty large, so they should have it. Thanks again for the feedback.

The Bonsai Learning Center sells soil, but they might also sell the components. I'd give him a call.
