Succulent & Cacti Super Soil 02



*Please note you may receive this product in our new packaging different to the pictured.

What is it?

A delightful well-draining soil that promotes root growth so you get happy, healthy succulents and cacti without fear of overwatering. No more brown rot!

The perfect formula for thin-leaved succulents (<1.5cm thick) such as the chain of hearts, jade or snake plant. Also suitable for baby succulents & cacti.

Why? Thin-leaved, baby succulents and cacti store less water in their leaves than succulents / cacti with thick stems and leaves. Thus, a normal succulent and cacti mix for these beauties may be too well-draining and make your plant thirsty.

Packed with organic nutrients to promote strong cell walls and robust stems, our 02 formula will make your succulent and cacti (almost) unkillable.

Our blend is 100% natural & chemical-free.

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.

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.

Thoughtful packaging, great soil

Loved the minimum-plastic packaging and simple aesthetic - made opening the bag feel special. Repotted 2 succulents with this mix, and after the adjustment period, both now look really happy.
