The Plant Runner - Cacti and Succulent Potting Mix
Cacti and succulents are traditionally found in arid sandy places and the cacti’s shallow roots are used to loose, well draining soils. The stuff you find at the local garden warehouse isn’t usually the best, often made with cheap ingredients that clump around the roots and lead to root rot. The Plant Runner team have designed the ultimate soil mix for Succulents and Cacti so they can stay alive and thrive.
The Cacti mix has been created especially for these sun lovers, it's a mix that enhances drainage, increases evaporation and replicates the conditions that these prickly guys love.
Unlike other mixes, this specialty potting mix will allow any excess moisture to drain off after your prickly friends have soaked up what they need. Cacti are the masters of rapid water-absorption and they’ll take in what they need and store excess in their thick stem walls. The Plant Runner team have made sure their mix drains off quickly, helping minimise fungal disease and root rot. They've also included a slow release fertiliser to help them settle in faster too.
Please note: Unfortunately we cannot ship the potting mix into Western Australia, Northern Territory or Tasmania due to quarantine restrictions.
