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 Potting Mix

Average Rating 5 out of 5

The right stuff

My plants love this mix. I love my plants. I only have a dozen or so small pots. This box will last me a long while. (unless/until I start sharing it with my family who also loves AV) I highly recommend. Follow the directions to pre-wet the amount of material you need before use, and off you go.

Great soil

Used for my all African violets with excellent results. Use for leaves propagation new grows come in 2-3 weeks. Highly recommend!

Awesome soil!

Just received my wicking potting soil. I haven't been able to find African Violet locally and was pleased to find a wicking soil to use with my self watering pots.
