I use juicy rich garden soil with lots of organic compost mixed in. It gets watered when it rains. I have five tiny cuttings that I made from one plant I bought online and they're all growing a new set of leaves (the shortest cutting is around 3cm long!).

They seem to like growing under all my trees in shady/diffused lighting where the soil remains moist.

Don't make growing plants a science experiment Smile
Also, don't listen to me.

I'm no expert, but I have some experience with Salvia growing.

I use "Jungle Growth" soil with a lot of perlite mixed in (40%-45% perlite).

Light intensity, fertilizing & cloning of Salvia divinorum (Sterling Bunnell 1962 strain)

The whitefly infestation killed most of mine.

Salvia grows very good in hydroponic systems (preferably with aquarium water). You can avoid the white flies that way, because the need soil to lay their eggs. Otherwise they will most certainly pop up at some time and they are really, really nasty to Salvia plants...
If you use soil, mix in lots of perlite, hydrocorrels or vermiculite. Fertilize with small doses whenever you notice slow growth.

I use a hydroponic medium which really helps with the pests!! Basically I'm running a ph neutral & nutriant devoid medium. It's just a 40% vermiculite and 60% perlite which I treat as a hydroponic set up Smile works awesome !!

Sorry to revive an old thread but that's a really good idea if I have understood it correctly. You mean that you have perlite and vermiculite in a pot and not a hydroponic pvc tubes. My fungus gnat problem is too bad to even consider anything else at this point!
