What soil is best for my houseplant?

The sweet scent of summer is in the air, which means one thing here at House of Kojo. It’s repotting season! When it comes to repotting, there's one vital repotting ingredient we can't overlook - the soil.

Here at Kojo, we get it. Finding the perfect soil for your houseplants can be a difficult task. That's why we stock GrowTropicals' full range of specialist houseplant soils and components, designed to simplify plant care.

Take a look at some of our favourites below!

Monstera and Philodendron Potting Mix

Here at the Kojo nursery, we love sourcing rare and unusual Monstera and Philodendrons. They deserve a soil blend that's as luxurious as their foliage, right? The light and airy mix allows for maximum oxygen exchange whilst retaining a lot of moisture, ensuring a healthy root system whilst avoiding rot. 

Worm castings in the mix add all the essential nutrients and trace minerals that your plants require and so this is a sure-fire way to start your plants off in the right way.

Alocasias are known for having very delicate roots. Therefore, they require a soil blend that caters to their specific requirements. GrowTropicals' Alocasia Mix is designed for greater moisture retention with a higher ratio of coco coir and husk, alongside vermiculite. These ingredients maintain the high moisture levels that Alocasia roots need. We would highly recommend this substrate mix for all Alocasia, in particular Alocasia frydek variegataAlocasia silver dragon and Alocasia zebrina.
