    I have been reading "well draining soil mix" on every article about succulent care. I even read that a good soil mix is around 30 percent organic and 70 percent inorganic. Is my soil recipe correct?
    1 part conpost
    1 part cocopeat
    5 parts pumice

    I'm worried cause they say that if I add water to the soil mix, it shouldn't clump. My soil mix sticks to each other probably due to the coco peat but it can break easily. Also, when I water the pot, the water easily drains out.
