1 bag of this
1 cubic yard of Garden Pro top soil from Lowe's, $1.50 per bag.
25lbs of playbox sand.
Quarter bag of MG perlite
1.5 cups alpha
NO SPHAGNUM MOSS, just don't need it.
And mix it all with my bulb auger and mist with water to sponge out the alpha pellets. Then mix again. Then I'll add a tablespoon of bone meal.
I don't know small mix increments or rations so I go until I'm out and do it exactly the same. My new potted ones with the addition of daily watering took days(5ish) to hold solid. Roots were still fresh though. This is how I'll do my remaining incoming ones I can't fit in the garden.
Ps. My potted rhizomes are sitting high and not buried at all. Squirrels and rabbits don't mess with my pots.
