Potting Soil Mixture For Your Indoor Plants + Repotting Houseplants



In this video I share my experience when it comes to the different types of potting soil and mixes you can use for your houseplants. For those beginners who’s just getting into houseplants, determining what type of potting soil to use for which indoor plants can be overwhelming. Hopefully this video will help you understand the different types of ingredients that are found in potting soil mix like Peat Moss, Perlite, Pumice, Cacti Soil, Orchid Bark and Coco Husk. What they do and how they interact with your plants to then determine which type of potting mix is best for your plants to thrive in. Enjoy.

  1. Do you use blood or bone meal? I love my maidenhair fern but during the winter in Canada I am loosing them. Terra cota pots do you think will help? Do you have any suggestion soil/tips?

  2. Hi Christian all of your plants are SO healthy and BEAUTIFUL, but that Pilea Peperomioides is absolutely mind-blowingly GORGEOUS!!💖💖💖🥰

  3. Nice straight forward info brother 👍 just startin off…9 plants all generally small…proud plant father lol

  4. Hi I love your videos thank you for sharing! When you brought out your Pilea Peperomia, I just gasped and was so excited, as I have the same and looking forward to it growing like yours, such a beautiful plant. But what really struck me, was your stunning String of Pearls in the background, absolutely stunning can you please do a video on that in regards to repotting and tips please. I live in the UK so things may be called different or cost more or less. You and your plants are amazing and thank-you once again. X

  5. I purchased Miracle-Gro and got fungus gnats. It had to come from the Miracle-Gro. I re-potted one plant in my sunroom and went from zero gnats to hundreds. I've been fighting it for three weeks now. UHG !!!

  6. I'm a new plant mom, about 3 months in with my plants and I am terrified to kill any, I am having a problem with fungus gnats and I'm planning on repotting all my plants, but I have mixed emotions on what soil will be best for my babies. I have been doing my research for some time now and it seems like a lot of people have issues with these gnats, 🙁

  7. A tip for anyone that finds coco coir expensive. If you have a local feed store(like for livestock) then buy the coco from there. I can get a huge block for like $10 here in Canada and it fills up a blue rubbermaid

  8. why not just don’t put pearlite on the top layer of your soil, i would suggest to do the last 20% op your soil without perlite! THANKS FOR YOUR TIPS

  9. How often do you guys change your soil if you use coco? Or do you just add nutrients every month o what?

  10. I am sort of new to houseplants. A few always died (by either overwatering it or underwatering it). But now I got rid of the fake plants & I am trying again. I was advised by a friend I could use aquarium gravel (I have a bunch around) instead of pumice. The advice was it breaks up the regular potting soil for better drainage… Would that work? I am trying to grow snake plants.

  11. Hi, do you use one kind of potting mix for all your plants. Already watch all your videos but can you make a video what kind of potting mixtute for praying plants, pothos, monstera etc. Thanks.

  12. Any points for Hoya plant soil mix? I've been using orchid bark & perlite is this ok, I'm new to Hoyas 🤗

  13. the only thing missing here for my is the compost. I use worm castings. Its what your plant needs for nutrients. Otherwise, this is a great mix which i will incorporate into my own!

  14. Great info! Could you talk more about peat moss sustainability? I hear it’s not eco friendly. Are there better alternatives?

  15. When you say cacti mix, is that any brand that is already premixed? And what brand do you recommend? Thanks! I love all your videos!

  16. I am way overthinking what to put my Golden Pothos in 😅 I propagated it from my moms plant and I really really dont want it to die

  17. Absolutely love your videos! I have watched so many. I have a pilea that is not doing great.. all of the bottom leaves are yellowing/ becoming translucent. In direct light north facing window, and I follow your rules for watering. Going to try to repot with your go to soil combo. Considering using some fertilizer too? I'm just not sure!

  18. Ooh! I also meant to say that I've been seei g "moisture retaing" cactus mix from Miracle -Grow lately. Makes no sense to me but you need to really look at package to not pick it up.

  19. My go to is dxactly like yours; 50 regular, 50 cactus, then some perlite. I need to look into pumice as many are starting to have it coming to the top. For anthurium I add some peat moss made from spagnum and a few bits og orchid bark instead of any perlite.

  20. I was gifted a variegated string of heart ☺️ do you recommend repotting from the nursery container ? If you do what potting mix do you recommend ?

  21. Wow your Pilea peperomioides is so impressive! I just got a teeny tiny little guy in a 1 inch pot. I really hope he grows to be as big and beautiful as your!
