A mixture of coarse and fine particles can be prejudicial for a substrate because the macropores will be filled by the fine particles, which reduces the air porosity of the growing medium.
Choosing the right substrate not only depends on the physical properties of the substrate, but also on the type of plants to be grown, the growing environment and the availability of the substrate.
It is best to use a growing medium that offers the ideal air porosity for your watering technique as well as the requirements of the crop.
