Getting the Most Out of Your Plants
If you’re like me, then you’ve probably tried keeping plants in your home before; ‘tried’ being the key word. You may be unaware, as I was, that a specific type of soil for potted plants is needed in order for them to flourish.
Why Use Potting Soil?
- First and foremost it’s actually highly convenient. All you have to do is grab a bag, and you’ve got all you need for your plants to stay healthier for longer. If you are feeling a little more DIY; however, you can can make your own, though it will take a little bit more work.
- Potting soil is lighter than other alternatives, and weight can be something to take into account if you are potting hanging plants. The soil typically include either perlite (a type of volcanic glass), or peat moss, which helps keep the weight low, while providing what growing plants need.
