The luxe soil that your plants have been praying for, this blend is sure to keep your drama queens from whinging. Created with a dose of moisture-retaining vermiculite to hydrate and energise, it helps sad plants bounce back and happy plants dance like nobody's watching.

FAQs

How much soil do I need for my pot?

Size Guide

880ml = 2x 9cm diameter pots OR 1x 12cm pot

2.8L = 4x 11cm diameter pots OR 1x 18cm pot

6L = 9x 10cm diameter pots OR 1x 23cm pot

If your pots are more deep than wide, we suggest going a size up.

What makes your potting mix so powerful?

We tailor the mix to specific types of plants. It's a practice taken out of the professional grower's rulebook. Our formulas reflect a plant’s place of origin and mimic qualities of drainage, aeration and nutrients so your plant feels right at home, in your home.

What's the difference between cruelty-free, chemical-free and vegan soils?

Whilst these concepts are still emerging, here is our take:

Cruelty-free Soil: Free from blood, bone or fish fertilisers, or anything that comes from the slaughterhouse.

Chemical-free Soil: Free from chemicals.

Vegan Soil: Contains no animal or animal derivatives. For example, worm castings are not strictly vegan (but debatable).

Our Super Soil line is cruelty-free and chemical-free, while our Vegan Soil is cruelty-free and vegan.

Do you sell your soil in bigger sizes?

Yes. However, due to the high costs of shipping bulk soil we haven’t made larger sizes a mainstream offering.

If you are after a custom size over 15L, simply contact us for a quote.

How long can I store your soil?

If kept in a cool, dry and dark place then you can store the soil for 12 months. Place bag in a sealed vessel to keep insects out.

You can still use the soil after 12 months, but the potent nutrients do break down over time, so we just suggest adding more nutrients (e.g. extra worm castings) before use if it sits on the shelf longer than that.

Fantastic product

I used this soil a while back, and it is working wonders for my Calathea and Begonia's. In addition, the soil was pest free and the packaging was clean and simple. Highly recommend!

Amazing!

I bought this super soil to replace what my Calathea came with as I wasn’t sure of it’s origins and whether it was cruelty free (at the time I didn’t know cruelty free plants existed) and I’m so glad I did!

Since replacing the original soil with the cruelty free super soil my Calathea has gone absolutely crazy, it’s brighter, growing faster and really does seem to be so much happier!
