I am trying to find the best soil mix for Carex Testacea. I tried giving
farm manure (recommended by the nursery I bought it from) but after a
week the tips of the leaves started wilting and turning into straws. So
I took it out of the ground. Someone in a Web forum said Carex Testaceas
don't like much nutrition and just need sandy loam. The plant label says
I should use acidic soil improver and general compost. But I am not sure
how much I can trust this.
I may treat it like other rock plants, which like sandy soil and peat.
But I am not sure if Carex Testaceas like peat. Can someone tell me if
this will be good for the plant? Or should I follow what the plant label
