Good question. So far it has been Vermont Compost Fort V, but I have found
it too heavy for many plugs and potted plants. Friends use the basic Fafard
mix, but it is not organic. I looked locally for large bags of perlite to
lighten the Fort V and couldn't find it, plus it is a dusty pain to work
with. I currently have them in 2-inch pots with the Fort V and they are
doing OK. But I know from the algae I had on lots of things, and the bricks
it turned into in hanging baskets that I need to do something different.

Quick question on the Spicey Globe in pots.  To pot them up for sale at the 
market, what mix are you using?
