Carbon-Negative Biochar

Biochar, the core of our house plant soil mix, enhances the soil’s nutrient and water retention. 

It also improves soil porosity (which enables plant roots’ development and prevents root rot). 

This creates the best conditions for your houseplant to flourish!

Each ton of biochar produced captures three tons of CO2 from the carbon cycle, preventing it from contributing to climate change. 

This makes it an ideal, earth-friendly soil amendment — unlike conventional houseplant soil ingredients like peat moss, coconut coir (coco coir), perlite, and vermiculite. 

Root Boosting Mycorrhizae

Mycorrhizae (mahy-kuh-rahy-zee) are houseplant friendly fungi that create a beneficial fungal structure on plant roots. 

How does that help?

It improves your plant’s ability to absorb water and nutrients, allowing them to make the most of our fertile indoor potting soil.

Moreover, mycorrhizae release a gum-like substance called glomalin that helps to further lock in moisture and nutrients. 

Pine Bark Fines

Pine bark fines are a natural, eco-friendly ingredient that improves the texture and structure of our indoor plant soil mix.

The small, finely ground pieces of pine bark increase the porosity of the soil, allowing for better air flow and water drainage. This supports healthy root growth, prevents root rot, and enhances nutrient uptake, ultimately leading to thriving houseplants.

Pine bark fines are sustainably sourced from the byproducts of the timber industry, reducing waste and supporting a circular economy

Compost

Our aged compost adds abundant organic matter to the indoor plant soil mix, improving the soil structure and drainage. 

It’s also a natural source of essential plant nutrients, like nitrogen and potassium. This reduces the need for chemical fertilizers, which acidify soil and harm soil microbes when used excessively. 

More broadly, composting upcycles organic waste that normally goes to landfills and emits greenhouse gasses.

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.

At Rosy, our entire supply chain has a net neutral carbon footprint!

How?

We maintain an eco-friendly system (from production to delivery) by curating the most sustainable ingredients (like carbon negative biochar), packing processes, and shipping. 

In fact, every bag of Rosy indoor mix helps captures CO2 from the carbon cycle.  

So, our house plant potting mix is a positive resource for your indoor garden and the environment.

FAQs

Peat moss has been a common ingredient in commercial potting mixes since the 1960s. However, it's obtained by extracting peat bogs, which are vital ecosystems that store carbon. At Rosy, we believe there's a better way. So, we've developed our blends with alternatives that are effective and sustainable.

Rosy’s indoor potting soil is all-natural, peat free, and made from biochar. 

We’ve consciously sourced our ingredients not only because they’re great for your plants but also because they’re good for our planet

Unlike traditional potting soil ingredients that are environmentally taxing, our biochar potting mix only contains natural and carbon-negative amendments.

Read additional information about Our Mission.

We use carbon-negative, organic ingredients to create the best indoor plant potting mix.

Typically, these organic materials are sent to a landfill, where they release methane and CO2 — two potent greenhouse gases. But by redirecting these organic materials from landfills and stabilizing their carbon structure, we prevent the release of those greenhouse gases.

Essentially, we turn our house plant soil into a carbon sink, which means it helps to remove CO2 from the atmosphere.

Discover more about what we mean by Earth Positive on Our Mission page.

Yes! You can add Rosy to your current houseplant potting soil — whether it’s an inorganic or organic potting soil mix, cactus or orchid mix, or otherwise. 

Doing so will help you refresh your old soil and revive its benefits for plant care. 

Alternatively, you could directly replace your current houseplant soil mix with Rosy. 

You can use Rosy indoor soil for plants like: 

Tropical plants (monstera, money tree, ZZ)

Philodendron

Pothos

Trailing plants 

Ferns

Why is it the best soil for these plants?

Rosy is a well draining potting soil, offering an optimal balance of drainage and moisture retention. Plus, it’s fertile and supports beneficial microbes, which help your indoor plant thrive.

Our 8 Quart bag of Rosy indoor potting mix will fill:

4 to 6 medium 6" pots

Our 4 Quart bag of Rosy indoor potting mix will fill:

2 to 3 medium 6" pots

And unlike traditional indoor potting mixes, you won’t need to replace the soil every year due to compaction.

Interesting soil seems great.

I’ve transplanted all that I could for about 3 weeks now and all of the plants appear very happy. I enjoyed working with it also. I would definitely plant more of my plants in the soil.

My plants love it!

I’m really happy with this soil mix. I repotted four plants with this mix 2 months ago and my plants are very happy. My monstera has grown 6 new leaves sine repotting. I did major surgery on my jade and it has put out so many new little leaves. I do pick out little mushrooms often but it doesn’t bother me. Will be purchasing again.

Grew a new leaf!

I planted some cuttings from a plant I dropped. At first I was a little apprehensive because the soil is really dark lol….but after 3 weeks she seems to be doing great. She even grew a new leaf 🤗.

Repotting my plants

I received my FIRST order on Saturday. The bag was huge! I repotted my neanthe Bella palm and she is adjusting nicely. Then I used the rest to repot a huge sansevieria that I received last month and which was rootbound. This soil was extremely easy to work with and I managed to transfer my sansevieria into a larger pot with no difficulty. I appreciate the time which the team has taken to answer all of my questions regarding this soil. I am highly recommending and will definitely purchase again

Plants are thriving.

I've been using ROSY soil for a little over a year now, and my plants have never been happier. I've noticed a significant improvement in the overall health of my pothos, with extremely fast growth. It's very easy to work with and provides everything your plant needs to thrive. I was able to use the abundance of growth to propagate more healthy pothos plants - all potted in ROSY. I would recommend this to any plant parent!
