Don't know the amount needed to help your green friend? Simply measure the pot's top diameter to find the perfect amount of compost you'll need. In some cases, you may need a smaller pot due to the reduced amount of roots - in this case, we'd still recommend getting the same amount of soil in correlation to your current pot size.   

Size (Litres)Ideal for...
1L13cm pots or smaller. Great for cuttings with no roots
5L14cm - 20cm pots
10L21cm - 28cm pots
15L29cm or larger, or for multiple smaller repottings

Similar to illnesses and diseases within animals, each case of 'Root Rot' is different. Repotting your poorly houseplant alone will only mask the issue of Root Rot, so we highly recommend reading our top tips and advice that'll be sent to your Email Inbox (once the purchase has been made). Not only should its soil be dealt with, but your watering regime and general environmental requirements should also change in order for your plant to make a good recovery. If your plant still doesn't recover from Root Rot, we recommend performing stem cuttings to save at least part of the plant from also declining. Stem cuttings on a root-affected plant can be performed in the same way as you would with a healthy specimen.

Of course, not all victims of this disease will pull through - but with our help, you should stand a FAR better chance of saving your houseplant than if you repotted it in a general Houseplant-labelled potting mix.

Unfortunately, due to the nature of this product, we cannot accept refunds if your plant fails to make a sufficient recovery from this disease. We will do everything in our power to provide you with expert advice to help bring your plant through this tricky time.
This product comprises individually-sourced components to create our quality potting mix. Its sustainable, basal component (coconut coir) is peat-free sourced from a well-established company in southern England that comply with strict production regulations in the U.K.. We then quality check & combine with the suitable ingredients to improve the overall soil structure and replicate the ecological habitats of temperate and tropical climates.

All our products include recyclable packaging/materials, with deliveries made to the local Post Office/Royal Mail Sorting Office or parcel depot via our fully-electric vehicle.
All of our composts come in a resealable bag, so never worry about having a little extra left over. Simply enclose the lid and situate it in a dry, dark area away from pets and children. The soil's freshness will last at least twelve months once opened, so it's great for emergency repotting and top-ups.
Unfortunately, our handcrafted composts are only available to those in the U.K., due to E.U. trading laws on plant-based materials. However, if you are in the U.K., expect free delivery and postage within three days of purchase!
