Aroid Mix

The Details

Not all plants are created equal. They each have unique water, light and fertilising requirements to hit their optimum growth and thrive sweet spots. Aroids and Tropical houseplants need a blend of large chunk orchid bark, perlite, coco peat and compost to really live their best lives. 

We’ve spent years designing the ultimate potting mix for Aroids and Tropical Houseplants.

If this was a meal, it would be the nutritious seasonal veggies and protein dinner in a world full of fries and burgers. 

We’ve formulated a mix of quality ingredients to best replicate the soil conditions  from the rainforest floor where many aroids grow. This combination is designed to be the loving and supporting foundational base for your Monsteras, Philodendrons, Syngoniums, Anthuriums. It creates the ideal home for the roots to grow and multiply and sets your Aroids up to lead long lives. 

We’ve taken our plant-loving-nerdiness to the next level with this mix by adding in horticultural charcoal to remove toxicities and added in neem granules to bolster beneficial plant minerals. We don’t add in any slow release fertilisers, so you can be sure you’re in complete control of your plant’s feeding. 

Use our Aroid Mix when it’s time to repot your plant or when you've just brought home a new memeber of your plant fam and want to hook them up with the good stuff.

    Best Potting Mix EVER

    This is an extremely highly recommended potting mix for any new plant parent like me! It’s fairly reasonable but what can I say, when you want your plants to thrive, you need to provide the best for them.

    My plants and I are obsessed

    First of all, the packaging is just incredible, so that’s that but most importantly the quality of these potting mix’s are absolutely amazing. I’ve tried another popular brand and it was obvious that my plants hated it whereas I can definitely notice my plants thriving. It is a little pricey but for the plant-obsessed it’s so worth it. I wish these came in 2kg or even 5kg sizes for crazy plant people like myself I’ve already gone through all my bags of potting mix as my number of plants are growing and they have also needed to be moved into Bigger pots. I also appreciate that my parcels always arrive neatly packed.

    My favourite potting mix

    This is my favourite potting mix. It’s light, well-draining and very good quality. You can immediately tell when you touch it. It doesn’t compact and you can easily tell when you need to water. I also like how it doesn’t have any fertilizer because I can feed my plants how, when and as much as I want. I used to make my own potting mix but I just got tired of having to deal with pests in them because they’re too moist or because of their poor packaging. Now I just buy this mix and I’m set for most of my plants! I just add coco peat if I need something that retains more moisture. 5 stars.
