It’s almost too good to be true!
We’re now offering Ultramafic, General Nepenthes, and General Terrestrial media mix to give your plants a leg up. Even better, we will be donating $1 to the Maliau Basin Conservation Area for each bag sold. Several at-risk Nepenthes grow in the Maliau Basin, and we want to help maintain their wild habitat. Buying soil = preserving soil!
A bit about each mix:
Ultramafic soil promotes healthy root development and growth for Nepenthes from select regions of Borneo and the Philippines (ex. villosa, clipeata, peltata, argentii etc.). What makes this media unique is that it contains low amounts of calcium and nitrogen, yet high amounts of magnesium, nickel, chromium, and other heavy metals. This achieves the optimal porosity and ph range of 5.3-5.8. This mix is made with the highest quality akadama, sphagnum moss, and peat moss.
This our signature media mix. La crème de la crème!
This soil has a low ph (5.3-5.8) and high porosity, creating an optimal media for most carnivorous plants. The perlite content allows water to freely flow through the pot while the sphagnum moss retains enough moisture for plants to thrive. This is your go-to Nepenthes media.
The best media for terrestrial genera!
This media is very porous with a low PH (5.3-5.5). These conditions are achieved via a combination of sand, peat moss, and perlite. This is an optimal soil for most Drosera, Cephalotus, Heliamphora, Dionea, and Darlingtonia.
