Subject: Peat/Sand

I excavated a small site for a bog area last fall, but didn't get finished
before cold weather hit, so I overwintered some Sarracenia and Dionaea
in large rubbermaid containers which were placed in the excavation and
surrounded by mulch.

I tried to figure out the best sand to use in the recommended
50/peat 50/sand mix, and experimented in the different containers.
Filter sand and Play sand from Walmart and a Home Depot product were used.
I've still no clue which one is the "sharp" sand all the faqs refer to.

It's now time to fill in the 4' x 9' bog area and I'd like to be certain I
use the
correct sand. Can anyone point me in the right direction please?
Thank you kindly.
