    Does anyone have experience using stall dry in their mix? It's DE rocks and calcium bentonite, I stumbled on it looking for dry stall to use as pumice.

    Also it looks like the only pumice I can find locally is the black gold brand, I read it has too many fines and need a to be screened, can anyone confirm this?

    I think you actually want Dry Stall, not Stall Dry. Stall Dry is the DE/clay and Dry Stall is volcanic rock/pumice which would be better for your soil.

    I know that I want dry stall, I've been looking for a local source but haven't found it. However the ingredients in stall dry are also common soil amendments, was just wondering if anyone had used them before.

    Ive haven't used those product's but i have used DE, calcined clay amendments and scoria to improve drainage in my very recycled peat based mix. Seems like in my case the scoria was the best idea. It is the most sturdy and long lasting by far. The plants seem to appreciate it as well. Roots surrounded the material in my 7 gal fabric pots. I got it from a bonsai supply spot and gave it a couple rinses before use. I usen tne medium small size, zero fines. The bits are like 1/2 the size of a pencil eraser.

    I couldn't find it localy either. Bought it from an opposite coast supplier.
