What should be the composition of a good potting mix for this plant

Maricopa County Arizona

Expert Response

Use a soil-based potting soil, however sprinkle the soil surface with a coarse sand or perlite so that leaves that touch the soil do not rot.  Be careful when you pot this plant to avoid planting it too deeply. Do not plant it deeper than it was previously.
