Agave repotting

Planning on repotting some agaves this season just wondering what kind of mix people use I've heard of people using things like ballast etc

John Innes no3 and up to 50% grit depending on whether it's a clay pot, plastic pot and if it's kept outside or not. Plastic pots and multipurpose compost is the worst combination, so avoid !

Sounds good to me. You want something that will dry out well over winter. Clay all the way.
