Features and Benefits

  • Quick-drying: Our potting soil dries out quickly, promoting strong root growth for your plants.
  • Reduced rot risk: With its mineral-based composition, our potting soil significantly lowers the chance of plant rot compared to conventional pine-based mixes.
  • Enriched with essential nutrients: This potting soil is fortified with calcium and silica, which strengthen new growth and enhance nutrient transportation within the plants.

How to Use

  1. Choose a pot with drainage holes to prevent excess water retention.
  2. Fill the pot with the Cactus & Succulent Mineral Based Potting Soil, stopping 2 to 3 cm below the pot’s rim.
  3. Place your cactus or succulent plant in the centre of the pot, ensuring that its base is slightly below the rim.
  4. Fill in the area around the plant with more potting soil, lightly pressing down to remove any air pockets.
  5. Water the plant sparingly to help the soil settle in place.
