HOW IT WORKS

  • Formulated without compost or pine bark to be less prone to fungus gnats
  • It has been designed to use on all types of Indoor Plants to provide the nutrients they need for stronger root development

 

HOW TO USE

  1. Use Indoor Plant Potting Mix straight from the bag - no further additives required
  2. Select a clean pot, at least 25mm wider than the original and partly fill with potting mix
  3. Carefully knock the plant from its existing pot and loosen the root ball. Trim off any dead or damaged roots
  4. Position the plant in the pot and fill with potting mix. Do not pack potting mix down
  5. Thoroughly water the plant and allow it to drain freely. If necessary, top the potting mix up again to the suggested level of 2-3cm below the rim
  6. Place the pot in a sheltered spot for 5 days to allow the plant to settle and acclimatise before moving it to a permanent home

 

WHEN TO USE

  • Indoor plant potting mix can be used at any time of the year.
  • Repotting established pot plants is best done either in Spring or Autumn - avoid Winter or Summer as the extremes of temperature may stress plants
  • Flowering plants should be repotted after they have flowered- enjoy the blooms first!

 

ONGOING PLANT CARE

  • Indoor Plant Premium Potting Mix contains a balanced fertiliser up to 4 months - additional fertiliser may be required in time, depending on plant needs
  • Avoid allowing plants to dry out - plants should be watered immediately after potting and frequently enough to keep the potting mix moist (not wet)
  • Plants should be re-potted with new potting mix when they have outgrown the pot or after 12-18 months

When using potting mixes, we recommend the use of garden gloves to protect your hands, and if dusty, wear a particulate mask
