Can I use akadama or Boon's mix or do I have to use some type of acid soil??

All of mine are in Kanuma here in the midwest USA.

I have moved all my Azaleas to Kanuma. They will grow well in most quality soil, but will grow even better in Kanuma

I picked up some kanuba today.

The guy at the shop said I should make a mix of 50% akadama, 50% kanuma here in NE GA.

Is that right, or should I go with straight kanuma?

If you are going to mix anything, I'd mix in some Pumice, otherwise use it straight.
