Is your blasting grit more attractive than Flourite that you wouldn't
use the Flourite to cap the Blasting grit -- or maybe mix the two?  I
doubt that the plants will care, but visually the choices make big
differences, no?

With replantings, you'll eventually get a lot of mixing anyhow -- how
much visually effect from the mixing depending on the ratios.
