Not happy with my new potting medium - should I repot again?

16 years ago

I bought a new brand of potting mix, and I HATE it! It is so peat-y, not much else was in there. Although I did amend it with a good deal of perlite, and some vermiculite for some of my plants, I still am not happy. It has compacted in some of the pots already, and it's really hard to water them right now.

Should I repot again? Or will repotting a second time cause too much shock to the plant?

The plants are: a ZZ plant, and a couple of sans.

Maybe I can wait a few weeks? - I have one more local nursery that I'm trying to special order the mystical Fafard mixes from.......

Thanks in advance ~ Maureen
