So I have 2 main aloe vera plants (which are still in the soil that I bought them in, which is made up of wood chippings / bark) and they keep having lots of pups.
They were in normal potting mix, until 2 developed root rot due to the soil retaining too much water.
So yesterday I went out to B&Q to buy some cactus compost. I watered one last night, came to look at it this morning and the soil is sopping wet still.
I let it drain out last night and it's in a saucer, which had no water filled in it, so the soil is retaining all that water, isn't cactus compost meant to help with water drainage?
Do I need to go out and buy some wood chippings and mix it 50/50 with the cactus compost?
Or should I just put all my baby aloe's 100% in wood chippings like the parent plants?
Thanks in advance for you help.
