Earth Positive Indoor Potting Mix
Rosy Soil- Earth Positive Indoor Potting Mix
A well draining, nutrient-rich potting mix for your indoor plants
- Biochar-based all-natural indoor plant soil
- Boosts soil aeration, optimizes drainage, and enhances nutrient uptake to help houseplants flourish
- Earth Positive ingredients (peat free, coco coir free, without perlite or vermiculite)
- An eco-friendly soil mix for house plants that reduces your carbon footprint
Bag Capacity/Dry Volume (qt): 8qt
Biochar, the core of our house plant soil mix, enhances the soil’s nutrient and water retention.
It also improves soil porosity (which enables plant roots’ development and prevents root rot).
This creates the best conditions for your houseplant to flourish!
Each ton of biochar produced captures three tons of CO2 from the carbon cycle, preventing it from contributing to climate change.
This makes it an ideal, Earth Positive soil amendment — unlike conventional houseplant soil ingredients like peat moss, coconut coir (coco coir), perlite, and vermiculite.
Plant Based Compost
Our aged compost adds abundant organic matter to the indoor plant soil mix, improving the soil structure and drainage.
It’s also a natural source of essential plant nutrients, like nitrogen and potassium. This reduces the need for chemical fertilizers, which acidify soil and harm soil microbes when used excessively.
More broadly, composting upcycles organic waste that normally goes to landfills and emits greenhouse gasses.
Root Boosting Mycorrhizae
Mycorrhizae (mahy-kuh-rahy-zee) are houseplant friendly fungi that create a beneficial fungal structure on plant roots.
How does that help?
It improves your plant’s ability to absorb water and nutrients, allowing them to make the most of our fertile indoor potting soil.
Moreover, mycorrhizae release a gum-like substance called glomalin that helps to further lock in moisture and nutrients.
Rosy soil is easy to use, even for beginners. Just follow these four steps:
Step 1: Pre-Moisten
Pre-moisten your Rosy indoor potting mix before adding it to your pots.
You can do this by adding the soil mix for indoor plants into a separate container and watering it until it releases a few drops when squeezed.
Step 2: Pot or repot
Fill the base of a well-draining container with the pre-moistened indoor soil mix.
Step 3: Plant
Slowly release your houseplant from its current soil, loosening the root ball and removing any soil debris. Then, set the plant into the container with Rosy indoor potting soil mix.
Finally, fill the space with more Rosy, leaving an inch at the top for easy watering.
Step 4: Water
Water the indoor pot soil thoroughly from the top until the excess water drains through the drainage hole.
For future waterings, we recommend bottom watering (by placing the pot or container in a tray with water), so the soil absorbs the water evenly. You can occasionally top water to flush salts or minerals accumulated in the soil.
