When I moved into my flat a couple of years ago, there were a couple of truly pathetic-looking plants. I went to the local (in Scotland) diy home & garden store, and bought a bag of potting soil called "Black Magic". I thought at the time it was quite expensive for "dirt", but for reasons I cannot recall, I bought it anyway.
The most pitiful of the two plants I inherited looked to be some sort of a succulent. It was so dry I could find no evidence of a root system, and I assumed it was dead. There was a small clump of dry, crusty "brown matter" where the root system should have been. But the pot was small, and as I had only one other plant in "intensive care", I elected to try some of my just-purchased "Black Magic".
I began to notice changes within just a few days. I didn't think to take any "before" pictures of this pathetic little plant, but about 2 months after the "Black Magic", this is what I had:
What is the name of this plant? Is anyone aware of the ingredients in this "Black Magic" potting soil - how did it manage this?
