SOIL MIX

Repotting into new soil is crucial for healthy plant growth. The original soil used by the nursery is of poor quality and suited for the high rate of water evaporation under hot temperatures. But it’s no longer suitable for your plants when you bring them to the cooler indoors, thus causing the issue of over-watering. When over-watering occurs, the roots are unable to absorb oxygen, which is important for the plants to respire and have energy to grow.

We have 3 different types of soil mix to suit different plant needs. Click on each soil mix to see the plants which we recommend you to pair them with. 

If your plant outgrew its pot, it’s best to use new soil mix as you move it to a larger pot as the old soil mix may now be low in nutrients.

  • Rock – Well Draining Soil Mix

    $5.90

    “Rock” is the soil mix with optimum drainage. Water runs through the medium and the roots and drains out almost immediately. It’s most suitable for plants which are sensitive to water and gets root rot easily. The colour of the soil mix helps to prevent over-watering as well. It turns light brown when it’s dry, and dark brown when it’s wet. That way, it’s clear when you have to water your plant.

    Suitable for: Succulents, Cacti, Stephanias, Phyllanthus
