What potting soil(name) formulated for cacti is available commercially? I need to repot some cacti in broken pots (the cats knocked-over the pots and broke them). Thanks for your help.

There are several potting soils sold for cacti by various companies. Just look for a potting soil at your local Home Depot store that indicates cactus on the front label. A potting soil for cactus and succulents will have more grit or sand and it the normal potting soil. You can use a regular potting soil and had about 50% sand with even some kitty litter mixed in to create a soil for cactus growing.

Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
