Has anyone tried Mel's Mix soil, from Square Foot Gardening, for repotting their plumerias? It is made of compost, vermiculite, and peat moss. Would that be advisable, or stick with cactus mix? Thanks in advance for any help and advice.

I haven't tried it, but that mix really holds the water. I would be afraid I'd rot it if I used that since I love to water.

Thanks Karen. I wondered about that. Its supposed to drain well, tho, too. I really dont want to lose my one plant!

You could add some perlite or pumice to it and be safe. I'd rather see it drain really well, and those three ingredients all hold water.

I agree. I'd stick with the cactus mix.
