Yeah river stones wouldn't be great. playsand is okay with plants although there is nothing special about it. Plant wise. Very cost effective, and it isn't like plants won't grow in it.

Can anyone point me to a cheap place for it? Im sure they sell something that'll actually give nutrients for the plants no? So I mean I could just get what ever it is and when I'm done cleaning the sand Incan mix it into it and then have some nice sand no? That's kind of what my thoughts with the red clay was.

Home depot play sand. You could mix it in, but at that point, I would just get plants that are okay with out nutrients in the substrate. What you could do is do a base layer of say flourite and then sand. 40pounds of flourite and then 60 or so of sand. Also you could just dose nutrients through the water, which some plants like and some don't. Plant fertilizer is very cheap.

Looking around online I found someone saying they bought ricer rocks from lowes and used it with some sort of substrate from lowes, 3 bucks or a bag of 20lbs... Would this be safe? The guy said it is but I don't know I'd
Obviously pour boiling water on it and prolly have clay or something underneat

Oh yeah river rocks would be okay but not great for plants... Actually you could get plants that attach to rocks and grow on them like java fern and anubias, then just dose liquid fertilizer.
