What Is a "Chunky" or "Gritty" Mix?

Root Rot; the #1 Killer of Potted Plants

Any potted plant with poor drainage can succumb to root rot, especially if potted in dense, heavy soil. Container plants are particularly at risk as they must have all their needs met in a small, controlled area.

The most common signs of root rot include the wilting and yellowing of leaves, soft mushy stems, and slow growth. Roots turn from a healthy white to black, brown, or red, and soil may smell rotten.

How To Avoid Root Rot

Because of its moisture retaining abilities and rather sterile, acidic nature, peat moss is heavily mined for the horticultural trade. Any standard bag of soil on the market contains peat, and the majority use peat as their primary ingredient.

Unfortunately, commercially harvested peat bogs worldwide emit over 2 billion tons of carbon dioxide annually — ~5% of anthropogenic greenhouse gas emissions, and are expected to rise sharply.

The Truth About Peat Moss

One Tree Planted

We care deeply about the planet and creating a business that gives back to nature. That’s why we’re thrilled to share that we’ve partnered with @onetreeplanted to plant a tree for every bag sold.

Trees clean our air and water, create habitats for biodiversity, contribute to our health and well being, and create jobs for social impact. Doing our part to support global reforestation is as important to our mission as creating excellent soil.

Along with several million of my closest friends across the globe, I turned to indoor plants during CoVid. I may 😂😉 have spent too much time searching for soil answers and "how-tos" on the internet. Without question, your soils are the best I have come across. Honestly, if you could just dump a truckload of dirt in my driveway, I would be a happy camper! Your packaging is so minimalist and fun. We haven't resorted to using your products as breakfast food yet, but we're not ruling that out.

Oddly satisfying, this mix.

I put a basic succulent in your mix when the bag first arrived and it's doing great, whereas the split rock that I put in other stuff has now rotted. It was fine for half a year in generic cactus mix from home depot. Probably my fault but still, seems your soil mix is more idiot proof/forgiving.
