Re: [APD] Depth of Soil

Oops! Forgot to mention the substrate! 2-3" of soil mixed with vermiculite capped with 1-2" of 2-5mm gravel. The foreground (unplanted) gets vaccumed regularly, but the backs a different story.

Walstad seems to think using more than an inch of soil is asking for trouble (from the soil turning into a stinking nasty mess), and from experience I can tell you it's hard enough to uproot/move plants when there's an inch of soil. This isn't a case where more is better.
