How much sand to use??
I thought I read 1-2" of sand is all to use. Went back, can't find a post that talks about this.
Can someone clear this up for me, before I start adding water.
I have 1" of sand on top of a thin layer of pea gravel. Is that enough sand? I'm hoping it is, because I'm so sick of washing sand!!!!
The total depth depends upon the plants. Stem plants require minimal substrate, but plants like swords with extensive root systems need more depth.
I read from Pat that she did that (sand over gravel) and thought it was the best of both. I'm kinda already into it now, as I've put the sand on top of the gravel. I guess I figured it would mix a bit, but as long as I'm not stirring up the sand, hopefully not too much. I guess I better add more sand though, to keep more on top of the gravel. Ugh.
