Meet our not-so-secret ingredient! Biochar is produced by converting organic waste material into a charcoal-like substance that roots love. It’s lightweight and porous, helping to conserve nutrients and water. The best part? Biochar sequesters carbon: for every ton of biochar produced, 3 tons of CO2 are removed from the carbon cycle.
Our aged compost provides abundant organic matter, creates soil structure, and supports optimal drainage. This organic matter naturally adds plant-available nutrients without the need for chemical fertilizers and supports a thriving community of beneficial microbes. More broadly, composting upcycles organic waste, preventing it from going to landfills where it would emit greenhouse gasses.
Mycorrhizae (mahy-kuh-rahy-zee) are naturally-occurring fungi that mesh with plant roots to increase the amount of nutrients and water they can access. In this process, they release a gum-like substance called glomalin, which helps to further lock in moisture and hold on to nutrients.
Where's the peat?
While peat moss is a common growth medium that’s great for plants, it’s not-so-great for our planet. Peatlands are natural ecosystems that store more carbon than all the Earth’s forests combined. When they’re mined for products like potting mix, the extraction releases twice as much CO2 per year as the entire airline industry. At Rosy, we believe there’s a better way. So, we’ve designed our blends to replace peat with high quality, simple-but-effective ingredients that leave the planet better than we found it.
Rosy soil is easy to use, even for beginners. Just follow these four steps:
Step 1: Pre-Moisten
Pre-moisten your Rosy indoor potting mix before adding it to your pots.
You can do this by adding the soil mix for indoor plants into a separate container and watering it until it releases a few drops when squeezed.
Step 2: Pot or repot
Fill the base of a well-draining container with the pre-moistened indoor soil mix.
Step 3: Plant
Slowly release your houseplant from its current soil, loosening the root ball and removing any soil debris. Then, set the plant into the container with Rosy indoor potting soil mix.
Finally, fill the space with more Rosy, leaving an inch at the top for easy watering.
Step 4: Water
Water the indoor pot soil thoroughly from the top until the excess water drains through the drainage hole.
For future waterings, we recommend bottom watering (by placing the pot or container in a tray with water), so the soil absorbs the water evenly. You can occasionally top water to flush salts or minerals accumulated in the soil.
