Designed to be the perfect substrate mix for repotting your Hoyas. The coco base helps to retain moisture, tree fern fibre gives long lasting structure and a mix of bark, perlite and pumice helps to keep the mix fast draining and and airy to reduce the risk of overwatering.
Grow Tropicals Philodendron Mix is a peat free potting mix designed specifically for Philodendrons. It's a tweaked version of Jungle Mix intended to complement the finer roots of Philodendrons. The light and airy mix allows for maximum oxygen exchange whilst retaining a lot of moisture, ensuring a healthy root system whilst avoiding rot. Worm castings in the mix add all the essential nutrients and trace minerals that your plants require and so this is a sure-fire way to start your plants off in the right way.
Originally designed and developed for the Atlanta Botanical Gardens (hence ABG), this has been the go-to mix for vivarium and terrarium enthusiasts for years.
Our ABG mix is based on the original Atlanta Botanical Gardens substrate recipe. It is fern fibre based and designed for long life span. ABG is designed for long term use in humid vivarium because of the following qualities:
Fast draining – it's a porous airy mix that doesn't get bogged down.
Moist but not boggy – the components, whilst fast-draining, do retain moisture well to prevent root dry out.
Nutrient retention – whilst the mix itself isn't nutrient heavy, the components hold onto nutrients well, ensuring a good growing cycle.
Minimal compaction – due to fibrous components, it's very resistant to compaction over time.
Long lasting – ABG can be used for a number of years before needing to be replaced.
