Is silica sand the same as any sand or is there a special material that is used in potting mixes for carnivorous plants?
I need silica sand for mixing potting mediums required for carnivorous plants, such as the Venus fly trap. Is that the same thing that is in play sand or is there a specific one? I found this commercial silica sand, but it seems to be for outdoor ashtrays. I am wondering if this is the same thing I need for the potting mix and if I can find a smaller quantity of it?
