There are so many available options of soils and amendments, which can make it difficult to figure out which one you need that will benefit your plants the most. At Down To Earth, we sell many different soils for your specific indoor/outdoor gardening needs. We’ve also begun to expand our houseplant selection quite a bit, carrying an even larger variety of plants.
There are several plants we carry that would not thrive in a regular potting mix. Regular potting mix, such as our Down To Earth Potting soil, is formulated not only for transplanting, seed starting, and container gardening, but also is intended to retain moisture to help reduce watering needs. This is all good and fine… until you have a plant that requires a lot of drainage, and doesn’t like remaining moist for long. That’s where Cactus Mix is your best option. This coarse blend is specially formulated for cacti, succulents, and bromeliads. It offers ideal soil structure, low water retention, and high drainage for moisture sensitive plants, which can rot if left in overly moist or compacted soils.
Black Gold Cactus Mix is made from a blend of Pumice, earthworm castings, compost, and forest humus. When you use Cactus Mix, your plants can drain properly after a good watering to keep them happy and thriving in your home or garden.
