Offering my custom 'ambrosia' container mix for the first time - happy, healthy roots = happy, healthy plants.
Each box will contain 4 16 oz bags of my custom potting media that I mix up myself. This mix is my take on a 'gritty' mix, meaning that 75% of the ingredients are roughly 1/4" in size and completely inorganic / won't break down. Perfect for houseplants or any plant that you want to thrive in a container. Because the components themselves are highly porous, and because the particles won't break down, roots can breathe at all times. Most plants can be in this mix for three or more years without declining in vigor due to the mix's durability and structure. Though this mix is more costly up front, it is endlessly reusable - simply rinse, sterilize, and optionally add a little bit of bark fines / soil conditioner / potting soil to bring the organic content of the mix back to around 25%.
Take a look at my photos! While I am not a slick photographer, I do believe they show the kind of root growth you can benefit from with the right kind of potting mix. No rot, lots of air available to the roots immediately after watering, and happy / healthy roots.
The mix contains:
Perfect For: Houseplants, sub-irrigated planters (SIPs), newly rooted cuttings transitioning from propagation mix, citrus, succulents, any container plant that does not require highly acidic or highly alkaline soil. I use this mix for all of my most valuable, difficult to grow, or long-term plantings.

Fine Print / the boring stuff:
I am offering the best potting mix that I am aware of, with which I have had repeated, consistent success with. I am offering it here because I believe it can help new and experienced growers alike be successful with plants. I cannot, however, guarantee success - potting media is one ingredient in the recipe for success, along with moisture level, temperatures, fertilization, light exposure, and more.
I will be shipping this mix via the United States Postal Service in Priority Mail flat rate boxes. I will ship most orders within a few days but promise to ship no later than the Saturday after purchase. Once the package is shipped, I will have no control over the time it takes to reach you and I am not responsible if the package is lost or damaged by the postal service.
