How to use the Cacti & Succulent Soil Mix
Using the mix is easy! start with removing as much of the old soil as possible. Gently squeeze the pot while holding it sideways to loosen up the plant. Run the roots under lukewarm tap water to remove the last pieces and bits.
Also, remove any dead foliage that may still be on the plant using scissors. Now your plant is ready for its fresh Cacti & Succulent soil. Add a small layer of Cacti & Succulent mix at the bottom of the pot.
Place the plant in the pot, and slowly add Cacti & Succulent soil to the sides to fill it up. Make sure that the point where the roots meet the plant is just buried under the Cacti & Succulent soil.
Lightly pat the Cacti & Succulent mix down into the pot. Make sure to water the Cacti & Succulent mix thoroughly after repotting, as this helps settle the mix and roots down.
Why the Cacti & Succulent mix works.
Gritty, airy, and well-draining are the main characteristics of this mix. To avoid overwatering there is a great amount of perlite, pumice & horticultural sand. This prevents root rot. The nutrients are designed to support the root, stem & leaf growth of your plant.
The original habitat of the Cacti & Succulent plants
Most cacti & succulent-type plants originate from dry, desert locations. These habitats have long dry seasons and little nutrients in the water. Both types of plants use their leaves & body to store water for these periods. The desert locations are usually sandy & rocky and drain quickly. This Cacti & Succulent mix mimics that environment.
How to care for Cacti & Succulent plants
Cacti & succulents cover many thousands of species. Water the cacti & succulent mix once every 2 weeks during the hotter period (spring and summer) and once every month during the colder period (autumn and winter). Only fertilise during the hotter period with specialized cacti & succulent fertiliser.
Our cacti & succulent mix contains nutrients for at least 180 days, so no need to add fertiliser until a new hotter period has arrived. For some succulents, you will need to water them more often. A great tip for succulents is that when the leaves get soft to the touch they can use a drink.
Be sure to completely wet the cacti & succulent mix when watering, a common misconception is that you should water only a little every time. Imagine a cactus in the desert, once it does get water from rainfall, it will be completely drenched for a while. Give your plant the time to suck up some water into the cacti & succulent mix.
Cacti & succulents prefer a large amount of sunlight and can handle a few hours of sun, depending on the species.
Making an open terrarium
An open terrarium requires specialized soil to thrive, the biggest risk is the rotting roots of succulents and cacti. Use our Cacti & Succulent mix & read this blog to get a headstart.
