  6. ok i have never seen anyone use grit in growing CPs No idea if the grit contains traces of minerals etc plus u will get algae build up on it which looks crap the link i gave u is the silica sand i have used with my mix that i have worked on for over 6 years now its a decent size grade aswell Did you look at the link ? I only use the silica sand that is used in swimming pool filters its like 10 times the size of normal sand along with add a certain amout of perlite keeps the plant more airy if that makes sense lol
  7. I have a 3 stage reverse osmosis filter i also bought the ppm meter for incoming water and out going. where i live going in is 75ppm going out oppm
  8. My experience been using silca sand for about 6 years on my flytraps that bag top picture i wouldnt touch. Buy thick grade silica sand that is used in swimming pool filters there are a few difference grade sizes dont use gravel for aquariums. when i get mine i always wash it with water from my reverse osmosis filter here this is 100% what you need http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Swimming-Pool-Silica-Filter-Sand-Media-25KG-Bag-Silica-No-2-Size-20-16-30-Grade-/180698592675?hash=item2a1279b5a3:g:OnUAAOSw~XpZQkFc
