|Not sure what the best mix for planting and growing Heuchera. |
I used some of the MG cactus mix and added some chicken grit and some small stones. It is what I use for my other succultents.
Will that work or is there something better? I just picked up a couple more today and want to keep them healthy.

|I just use MG Garden soil. They want to have some moisture , just not constantly wet. That mixture sounds like it might keep them too dry.|

| I think that mix might be too fast draining for heuchera.|

|Thanks, I will see how they do for a while and if it seems they are puny I will repot them into MG only. |

|They look pretty dry this morning, Perhaps I should just re-pot them now.|
Also I have a bug ..
I am a bit paranoid .. should I spray or leave it alone?

|I would re-pot . The only insect you really need to watch out for is black Vine weevils.|

Bob,I have seen those posts about the weevil and am watching for signs.
Thanks for the advice. If it does not hit 100 and does not thunder storm, I will do it tomorrow.
