    Fine sand can clogg plant roots

    Dear friends ,
    Can plant roots clogged up in sand ?.
    I use organic potting soil mix with mason sand . Also 2 centimeter max mason sand layer on top.
    Can these sands clogg up and block the roots from growing ?

    I would say as a general rule, no sand can not clog up roots, buy the time sand particles get small enough to clog/choke roots (in a wet aquatic environment) it's called silt or clay, not sand anymore... Mason sand is nowhere near that fine or small of particles...
