What is Potting Mix?
Potting mix is a medium used for growing house plants and other potted plants. Common ingredients for potting mix include sand, composted bark and recycled mushroom compost. Some potting mixes also contain small amounts of fertilizer and slow release nutrients to assist healthy plant growth.
Though commonly called potting soil, potting mix actually contains little to no soil. This is because soil alone is considered too heavy for the healthy growth of house plants. Potting mix is intended for use in pot plants and containers.
What is Potting Mix used for?
Simply put, potting mix is used to grow plants. It is most effective when used in pots and other containers rather than garden beds. Potting mix is essential for pot plants to grow healthy roots. This is because the light consistency of potting mix allows for plant roots to spread where garden soil would otherwise compact and inhibit root growth.
Another reason potting mix should be used for pot plants is the insects and diseases that could be introduced by using regular garden soil.
