Wicking Potting Mix

12 quart box.  An extra coarse mix for wicking or self-watering pots.  A sterile, soilless, mix that we make ourselves.  Contains 40% sphagnum peat, 10% extra coarse vermiculite and 50% perlite, with wetting agent.  A "must" for constant-watering systems.  One box contains enough soil to repot approximately: 20 plants in 4" pots, 80 in 2.5"-3" pots, and 100 in 2.25" pots.  We suggest adding 1 part water to 4 parts soil the night before using--this will provide the proper moisture and consistency for easy potting.  Shipped postage-paid (shipping included in price).

Wicking Violet Soil

Very happy with the wicking violet soil composition compared to other violet soils I purchased from other vendors. The mix is a quality product at a fair price. The quantity is a good amount for me to repot a number of self-watering pots of various sizes at one time.

Repeat customer!

Amazing soil. I don’t have many AVs and Streps but those I do love this soil.

Well worth it!

Love this product. My violets thrive in self watering pots with this mix. Great for propagation too. Definitely will purchase again

Great soil!

I admit, I laughed when I opened the shipping box to discover a trash liner bag used for the soil. It caught me off-guard, but after opening the bag I get it. This is carefully hand crafted potting mix. It's light and airy, lots of perlite, vermiculite, detritus and peat. It sifts easily, uniform, easy to use and just all around gorgeous. I'm currently eyeing my other succulents because I'm fairly sure I would audibly hear my Pineapple plant sigh if I used this for it. Pricey, but worth it and you do get a lot for the money.

Convenient & Impressive Mix

I used to buy separate products and mix myself. It was never consistent or the right ratios. It's so much easier to just by this ready mix that works great.
