Where do we get it in Bangalore

 

and is it good for vegetable gardening?

 

I make my own potting mixture cocopeat ( 100kgs), vermi compost (100kgs), red mud (20 kgs) now I am planning to add goat waste to it

 

Can i add perlite to this?

Was this mix any good? You sure adding 100 gms to 20 kgs of red soil is enough? 

I have used a 50:50 mix of regular soil : compost (not sure if its vermi compost or not). 

It wasn't too good. After the transplant the plants are rowing extremely slowly.
