How to use the Carnivorous 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, remove any dead foliage that may still be on the plant using scissors. Now your plant is ready for its fresh Carnivorous soil. Add a small layer of Carnivorous mix at the bottom of the pot.
Place the plant in the pot, and slowly add Carnivorous soil to the sides to fill it up. Make sure that the point where the roots meet the plant is just buried under the Carnivorous soil.
Lightly pat the Carnivorous mix down into the pot. Make sure to water the Carnivorous mix thoroughly after repotting, as this helps settle the mix and roots down.
Why the Carnivorous mix works.
Because of the added vermiculite and sphagnum moss this mix will stay moist for a long time, which gives you more time in between watering your beloved meat-eaters. The added sand helps with weighing the plant down. Carnivorous plants usually don’t have a very large root system, which makes them susceptible to being uprooted.
The original habitat of the Carnivorous plants
Carnivorous plants' habitats are varied, but almost always involve low-nutrient soil that is very wet. Common locations include bogs, waterbodies, rocky sites & swamps. They get almost zero nutrients from their soil, so that’s why this mix contains no fertilisers.
How to care for Carnivorous plants.
Carnivorous plants prefer full sun, place them in a sunny spot in your house. The carnivorous mix should stay continuously wet. A great tip is to place the pot in a bowl or saucer full of water, so the plant can suck up water as required. It is not required to feed insects to your plants, but it can help growth.
Our packaging is completely recyclable. The labels are made of kraft paper and can be composted. The bag's can be either re-used or disposed with your local plastic recycling service.
I repotted my nepenthes collection with this mix in June of this year and almost immediately they have thrived, growing more pitchers than ever before and lush green leaves. I recommend it highly.
Goed verpakt, Hoge kwaliteit, Snelle levering, Zeer goede uitgebalanceerde potgrond. Mijn planten groeien er prima in.
Fijn dat je vleesetende plantjes nu in een gezonde bodem staan!

I was nervous potting up my carnivorous plants as I'm new to them...I thralled the net and ended up buying soil from SYBotanica. Got boggled with the choice on the net..... but... I'm very happy with the results. Three weeks ago I potted them up... these are how they are now.... ALIVE!!!
What a wonderfull product. My plants were nearly death.
That was my fault i never had insect eating plants before.
I bought the Carnivorous soil mix, hoping that i would bring them back to life. And guess what!!!!!, it did!!!! I even have baby plants. The soil is so open and loose. It sucks the (rain)water right up from root to the top layer. An absolute blessing for my plants.
Speedy delivery aswell
Still have to try it. Would have been great if the packages were labeled. Hard to tell it apart from another soil mix I ordered.
