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


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.

Wicking Potting Mix

I am so happy to have this potting mix that is lighter for my self-watering pots. I never knew what the level of water should be in the reservoir and this will remove the guess work with no fear of over watering. So happy to have found the Violet Barn.
