I would agree that peat and limestone will affect your pH. Also perlite will float up if you disturb the substrate when you cap it.

I would suggest looking for Miracle Grow Organic Potting soil

I'm still trying to find miracle grow, but without luck so far....might just add root tabs to hold them over till garden centres open

Right now I can get topsoil, potting soil, black dirt....and various mixes for veggies that are bound to be toxic

I did consider this.....but with all the stray cats, it would likely be ruined halfway through the process

I tried it once before for a tank but a week into setup my house smelled like a toilet and my swords were dead

How about aliflor? We orchid fanatics use it as a potting medium. I have yet to try it under water, but it seems like it would work.

I can look into it....I mean it's going into a pot/vase so I can pull it out if it causes problems
