Another indoor sport with pots,is an experiment with Pulverized Charcoal, various types of OM and regular blow sand(mortar sand),,, all mixed together as a potting mix...

One purpose being to observe and note water retention with drainage...

Another observation will be health and vigor of the entire plant... at some point I'll be cutting this peat pot in half, to see the roots, crowns and grass from a X-section or profile view...
