You are probably wondering which plant "base" is. Well, this mix is a base for any plant type. This base mix is ideal for the adventurous type, add specific components to recreate the natural habitat of the plant you want to repot. See it as a blank canvas for you to paint on. 

How to use the Base Soil Mix
Using the mix is easy!  start with removing as much of the old soil as possible. Gently squeeze the pot while holding it sideways to loosen up the plant. Run the roots under lukewarm tap water to remove the last pieces and bits. 

Also, make sure to remove any dead foliage that may still be on the plant using scissors. Now your plant is ready for its fresh Base soil. Add a small layer of Base mix at the bottom of the pot.

Place the plant in the pot, and slowly add Base soil to the sides to fill it up. Make sure that the point where the roots meet the plant is just buried under the Base soil. 

Lightly pat the Base mix down into the pot. Make sure to water the Base mix thoroughly after repotting, as this helps settle the mix and roots down.

      Socially responsible production

      At Sybotanica we not only want to make plants happy, but people happy as well. In our production team we exclusively hire people with a distance from the workforce, and help them rehabilitate to the normal working life.


      Take Peter for example:

      Peter has been with Sybotanica since the 1st hour, and has now been promoted to head of production & a permanent contract! Where he was the first employee, he now manages a team of 3 production workers.

      What makes this achievement even more impressive is that Peter achieved all this with only 10% visibility! 🕶️ With a few minor adjustments to his working environment, Peter is able to perform his job 100%.

      Peter has now been through two moves and knows all the ins & outs of Sybotanica. He can even feel by the potting soil which variety it is. That's quite a challenge with 16 different mixes!

      We are confident that Peter will keep production running smoothly in the coming years too! 💪

            FAQ's

            Not sure if the Base mix is right for your plant?

            Check out the SYBASoil Guide

            How much Base mix do I need?

            Check out this pot volume calculator tool to calculate how much Base mix you need.

            When do I need to re-feed the soil?

            The nutrients in SYBASoil will run out in ~6 months on average. We recommend refeeding by removing the top part of the soil and adding 10-20% of the volume with fresh worm castings.

            How long does SYBASoil stay fresh?

            You can store SYBASoil for about 2 years. Make sure to store it cool, dark and closed off. The effectiveness of the nutrients can degrade over the years. Simply add some fresh worm castings to give the soil new life.

            When do I repot the plant?

            We recommend repotting once any of these things happen:
            - You see roots growing out of the bottom of the pot
            - The soil dries very quickly between watering
            - The plant is top-heavy and wants to fall over
            - Roots are pushing the plant up and out of the container
            - Every 1 to 2 years

            How to recycle SYBASoil packaging

            Our packaging can be recycled at your local plastic recycling facility.

            You can also re-use it for storage, or leave a little soil and use it as a propagation box!

            How to water plants grown on the Base mix

            Water the soil only when the top 2-3cm of the soil is dried out. You can test this out by poking your finger in the soil to feel around.

            It is fine to let it dry out a bit more sometimes if you forget it as the deeper soil will retain moisture for longer. This will also help the roots to grow deeper.
