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

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.

Magic mix

I went online to research help for an overgrown/undernourished violet and was lucky enough to come across The Violet Barn's tutorials. In addition to saving that violet, the information sparked my new violet obsession. When I realized that my collection would be growing rapidly, I knew I'd need good soil to succeed, so I purchased this 12qt box (it goes a long ways). It's obvious this Wicking Mix has been perfected by pros. My new plants, old plants, and cuttings are absolutely thriving in it. Will need to order more soon. Thanks Rob and Ma!

The Best !!

This is absolutely the best wicking soil on the market, I bought a box in August of 2014 and still have a lot left, it just seems to be multiplying !! The mix is perfect and I reccomend it to anybody who is wick watering or thinking about watering by wick or matting !

Thank you for creating a mix for self-watering. Just makes out "green thumb" a little greener. I transplanted all my plants and they are happy campers now.
