Using a Blend of:
Coco Coir, Perlite and Worm Castings
About the Soil.Ninja Base Mix:
An unspecialised mix that can be suitable for the majority of houseplants under correct care. This blend is also a fantastic base to build off of to specialise towards your plants specific needs using different components.
Go from Basic Mix to Dirty Tricks! With 3 core ingredients, we use the same high quality Coco Coir, Worm Castings and Perlite, as our other mixes. These cover the three core properties all soils should have - drainage, nutrients and aeration. Of course some plants need different balances of these, which is where specialising can come in.
Ideal For Most Plants: (See our Houseplant Index)
Got some Anthurium? Add some Coarse Zeolite and Coarse Bark to create larger air chambers for those bigger roots. Are Cacti your thing? Try adding Sand and Grit to help create a faster drying mix. You get the idea, but if you're looking for a more in-depth guide on the best way to use our Base Mix, check out our blog post showing you exactly how it works. See our Houseplant Soil Guide for more.
