Anonymous added on February 16, 2014 | Answered

I just purchased and repotted a Kangaroo Paw. It says that they require sandy soil. I use potting soil. Can I just add sand to my potting soil?

The main thing is that it is well draining, which is what sand typically helps with. So yes, you can mix in some sand with your potting soil and it should be fine.
