Sol Soils offers a variety of high-quality, gritty mix soils, soil amendments, and decorative soil toppers designed for the full spectrum of potted plants that may be in your collection. We select and hand-mix the best ingredients to produce fast draining soils that help protect against root rot, the number one killer of indoor plants.
Cactus Gritty Mix is the mix that started it all! This puts a more eco-friendly spin on the traditional gritty cactus soil by utilizing coconut chips and coir, an otherwise wasted byproduct of the coconut industry. Of the 50 million coconuts produced around the world each year, about 85% of the husks are discarded as trash. As a soil component, the ground husks offer excellent aeration and moisture retention properties while still providing a fast-draining medium. Cactus Gritty Mix is the perfect choice for a wide variety of cacti and other hardy, dry-weather plants.
*Ideal for plants like Agave, Golden or Blue Barrel Cacti, Cereus, Echinopsis, Euphorbia, Fairy Castle, Mammillaria, Myrtillocactus, Prickly Pear Opuntia, or Totem Pole Cacti to name a few! -- Note: Christmas Cactus -i.e.- Schlumbergera is not a desert cactus and won't want to be this dry, see: Houseplant Chunky Mix.
