What is it?

A blend jam-packed with beneficial microbes that will bolster plant health and vibrant foliage, thanks to a powerhouse blend of worm castings and biochar.

Below the surface, these highly-effective ingredients work together to strengthen cell walls and store nutrients, leaving your plant with an everlasting radiant glow.

Aeration components allow oxygen to easily penetrate the root zone for growth of strong roots more resistant to pesky diseases.

For those who don’t have all day to fuss over our plant babies, this nutrient-rich blend will effortlessly keep those air-purifying leaves growing in abundance.

Suitable for any ficus & palm including the fiddle leaf fig and parlour palm.

Our blend is 100% natural & chemical-free.

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.

Amazing soil, amazing ethos

I'm really impressed with this soil. Not only is it great for the planet, but it's great for my plants. I've had a small fiddle leaf fit flourish in this soil, and have since used it for a philodendrom variety which also seems to really like it. Plants are happy and healthy. 10/10 for planthood soils!

Awesome!

I purchased this super soil for my 2 parlour palms that I had unfortunately bought before I ever knew cruelty free plants even existed.

I really wanted them both to be fuelled by cruelty free ingredients, so I changed out their old soil for the super soil.

I can honestly say, they’ve never looked better and they’re putting on so much new growth it’s unbelievable!

They’re absolutely loving the new soil and I cannot recommend it enough!

Beautiful high quality soil!

We already have several Planthood plants and love them, so it’s really great to be able to put it all together with vegan soil. We used this soil for repotting our Planthood Chinese Money Plant. The soil looked really nice and dark with good drainage. No bugs or funky pieces of plastic like I’ve had in commercial bags. Really happy with this soil and look forward to trying the other mixes for repotting plants in the future.
