This nutritious blend acts as a general mix for the vast majority of houseplants, with the ability to be specialised based on the plants needs. Packed with aerators already, this mix will serve all houseplants a full pallet of nutrients along with plenty of aggregate formed air chambers to allow roots to breathe while growing.

Adapting the mix is a great way to learn more about how plants have different needs. With good care, most plants will grow perfectly well in the mix as it is, however some plants that are more sensitive or are prone to root rot when overwatered may want some adaptations as a precaution.
