I believe you are not referring to the beach sand, right? I also need it for other plants but I could not find it here locally. I can order online but I do need to know the right kind. Appreciate your input.

Generally, it is recommend to use course river sand. This will be the best at aeration. You can always go with the usual horticultural sand, too, which is specially processed and pH neutral. It is quite a bit more coarse than beech sand.

Beech sand would be salty, and pH imbalanced. I wouldn't use it.
