Bio Leaf Premium Variegated Leaf Mix
Bio Leaf Premium Variegated Leaf Mix is light and airy with the right balance of nutrients, aeration and moisture retention for variegated plants. This is important for root health so the roots have access to oxygen as well as moisture. This style of mix is open and not dense like some potting mix options – which also makes it a lot easier to use.
The blend includes a mixture of orchid bark, tree fern fibre, pumice, powdered hardwood charcoal as well as a custom blend of ‘bio-active’ nutrients.
This premium potting mix has been created by the knowledgable team at Bio Leaf who really know their mix. They follow a comprehensive process to create a potting mix of the highest quality filled with organic nutrients and plant stimulants to help your plants thrive.
The bio-nutrients in Bio Leaf Premium Potting mix are designed to work alongside your usual fertiliser.
The ‘coarse’ or variegated grade of potting mix is light and chunky with nugget sizes ranging from 8mm – 20mm. It is suitable for variegated plants, those with thicker roots and any plant that needs good air movement throughout the pot.
This potting mix is recommended for variegated varieties of:
- Alocasia (Elephant Ears or Taro)
- Aglaonemas (Chinese Evergreens)
- Caladium (Heart of Jesus)
- Devil’s Ivy (Pothos, Epipremnum, Scindapsus)
- Dieffenbachia (Dumb Canes)
- Fiddle Leaf Fig
- Monstera (Cheese Plants, Monstera adansonii, Monkey-Mask Plant)
- Peace Lilies
- Rhaphidophora (Monstera minima, Philodendron minima)
- Syngonium – Arrow Heads
Bag: 2 Litre
Nuggets: 8mm – 20mm
Bio Leaf Premium Variegated Leaf Mix is also available in a 2 litre bag. See the full range of Bio Leaf here.
How to use
Before use we recommend you mix the potting mix throughly to blend through the smaller particles evenly. Add a little water to the mix – this will help to redistribute everything.
Suggestions for transplant solution:
We suggest using a fertiliser and root support that includes seaweed, before and after repotting, to reduce transplant shock. Seaweed is fantastic at reducing shock and helping the plant recover.
Use a mixture of the following. Make up with water and use according to the instructions.
Watering will vary for each plant but as a rough guide every 2-4 days during summer and weekly during winter.
Bio Leaf Potting Mix has been created to drain water away so the roots do not become saturated. Should you need to increase the water holding capacity add a little extra tree fern fibre to the mix.
Storing Unused Potting Mix:
The rich organic nutrients may attract unwanted bugs so keep the bag well sealed in a cool dry area.
Note: Bio Leaf Premium is rich in organic matter and nutrients. Sometimes fungal mycelium threads can appear on the substrate or the bag. You may see fluffy white balls around some particles. This is nothing to worry about and is part of the microbial life going on in the bag. It will not harm your plants.
