I have done a lot of research last night and today I have found that silica sand is used for ...
Swimming pools filters
xxxfine for dried flowers
and organic soil additive
I spent 4 hours driving around looking for it
home depot USED to carry it here but not now Arrrrgh
I went to several organic gardening centers finally the last place I went suggested I call a pool supply store.. I DID
They told me they use the purest form of silica sand.. Their supplier only ships silica sand that has been washed with distilled water as hard water adds mineral and such to it,,
Swimming supply stores that carrry silica sand for sand filters can ONLY use PURE silica sand because after people add the chemical to their pool there may be a chemical reaction thus resulting in a potential law suit..I called 3 different pool supply stores and they all told me the same thing, ALso said I need to wear a mask when using it as it has a fine dust that is not good for the lungs
I'm 99.9% sure this is the silica sand I'm needing.. for my pitcher plant
.. I have two plants
and only one needs repotting Geeeez I guess I'll go ahead and buy it and try it and keep my fingers crossed!
