Noah's Guide: Soilless Potting Mix

Is it that time! That time to repot your growing babies into a new home? Here's a guide on potting mixes for different species of plants to make the transition as welcoming as possible. We will be discussing soil less mix for this article.

1. Aroid Mix

Aroids are from the family Araceae. Some of our favourite plants such as the Monsteras, Alocasias, Pothos and Philodendrons belong to the Araceae family. In the wild, aroids can be found on the forest floor and are adapted to surviving in low-light conditions.

This super soilless aroid mix by Natural.Gro contains:

- Aged Pine Bark
- Compost
- Perlite
- Pumice
- Zeolite. 

The Pine Bark creates a lightweight potting mix and provides excellent aeration to allow for water to strain through. Compost increases moisture and nutrient retention capability while Perlite, a volcanic glass aids with water retention and aeration. Pumice, a porous volcanic rock that facilitates drainage, preventing root rot and lastly Zeolite, reduces nitrate leaching from nitrogen-rich fertilisers.

As you can see, these ingredients are chosen for their great aeration properties and their ability to lose water, preventing root rot. Providing a comfortable home for your plants roots to call home! 

2. Succulent Mix 

Cacti and succulent are perennial plants, meaning they last forever. Cacti have thick herbaceous or woody chlorophyll stems.
Succulents, are plants with parts that are thickened, fleshy, and almost bloated looking, usually to retain water in arid climates or soil conditions.

Cacti on the other hand have areoles, small cushion like structures with trichomes (plant hairs) and, in almost all species, spines or barbed bristles (glochids). 

Although their adaptations to their challenging climates are different (one has leaves that hold on to water and the other super thin leaves that reduce moisture loss to air), their soil requirements are the same!
Cacti and succulents require a porous, sandy mix that provides plenty of aeration and optimal drainage. A good cactus potting mixture will also consist of some organic material, such as cocopeat or compost that makes moisture available to the plant roots when watered but then dries out quickly.

This succulent mix from Natural.Gro is made in Singapore, is designed for great drainage, yet holds enough moisture to keep your cacti and succulents healthy.

- Sand
- Silica Sand
- Cocopeat
- Compost
- Zeolite
- Pumice
- Polymers.

3. Vegetable Mix 

A mix that is used for your houseplants might not be the best pick for your vegetables. After all, you are what you eat and don't you want to eat the best to be the best!

A good vegetable mix should contain organic matter and a combination of nitrogen, phosphorous, and potassium (N, P, K).

Compost can provide the NPK required. Organic material provides nutrients and softens the soil. This allows roots to spread more easily. This softening effect also makes the soil more absorbant, making it easier for water retention.

Soil PH is also important for vegetables. Exact pH requirements vary across the board between alkaline (high pH) and acidic (low pH), but most garden veggies prefer a pH of about 6 or 7.

This Veggies and Ornamental Plants Mix is designed for moisture retention, chock-full of compost, balances pH and ideal for growing seedlings, fruit, veggies and all plant types.

This super soilless vegetable mix by Natural.Gro contains:

  • Vermiculite
  • Peat Moss
  • Cocopeat
  • Perlite
  • Zeolite
  • Compost
  • Humic Acid


Stay Safe and Happy Planting!
