Here is a good 'recipe'.
5 parts perlite
4 parts bagged potting soil
1 part coarse sand
pinch of rock dust

If you purchase a cactus mix, mix this half and half with a good quality potting soil.

All succulents like a little bit of acidic addition. You can add 1 tablespoon of white vinegar to 5 gallons of water and use this to water your succulent planter.
