The rootball was dense. I have a patio to grow this on in a container. Not sure of the variety of C edulis. Living in Sydney my potting soil/ soil additives must be purchased at a store. 

I have searl seedling mix bags few bags of perlite not sure what ratio mix any advice for growing Catha Edulis in pots what soil mixtures to use. Clay pot setup size. Right now it is in 50 Searle seed starting mixture and 50 perlite in a pot the rootball barely fits in looking to get a bigger clay pot and Maybe better soil mixture. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers

I would recommend you put the plant in the ground & stop fussing over it.

 

I have the same plant in a flower bed consisting of hard clay soil getting morning  sun.  It needs pruning every year & flowers & set seeds every year and i ignore it 100%.

 Thank you Zelly I with I had access to a back yard. But this or a slightly larger pot on a small windblown patio will have to suffice. Cheers
