I'm in Adelaide and my potted cacti go fine with an all round potting mix with sand. Where are you? If you are in a cooler/wetter area, you need more drainage, whereas I'm in a much dryer place and I still need wettasoil every six months for pots, even for my cacti that are indoors. I also add a little blood and bone. Don't get the super expensive mixes, they can be too rich for cacti. Hope this helps!
