Using a blend of: Coco Coir, Worm Castings, Horticultural Sand, Activated Charcoal
Mixed plentifully together to form a stable substrate that creates many microcosms for their intricate roots to spread and colonise. The addition of horticultural sand means the drainage is even throughout and will drain a little different to a chunkier mix, ensuring that the higher presence of worm castings can deliver that retained moisture and necessary nutrients! The activated charcoal plays a vital role in removing impurities from the substrate and allowing beneficial micro fauna and flora to flourish, as we know, a lot of roots cannot thrive without the necessary symbiosis of some microorganisms to help facilitate the uptake of nutrients and to break down macro nutrients into a substance that they can use. That’s the magic of soil, and we intent to make you a fern casting witch!
Don’t just limit yourself to ferns for this mix, it makes a fantastic seed starting mix and any thirsty, delicate plant that enjoys a neutral pH soil base, like Cissus discolor or Spiral ginger!
