Vegan Compost

Our aged, all-natural compost increases the organic matter in your soil mix, providing healthier, well-draining soil for your peace lily plant.  

It's also an amazing source of nutrients, ensuring your peace lily gets the necessary plant food to thrive. 

Carbon-Negative Biochar

Biochar is an earth-friendly, versatile soil amendment. It enhances nutrient retention and soil structure, aiding water preservation and root development. 

Moreover, it traps atmospheric carbon dioxide in the soil! Every ton of biochar produced removes three tons of CO2 from the earth’s carbon cycle.

So it's a great sustainable alternative to conventional soil amendments like coconut coir, perlite, and peat moss. 

Root-Boosting Mycorrhizae

Mycorrhizae (mahy-kuh-rahy-zee) are root-fortifying fungi that enhance your peace lily’s ability to absorb water and essential nutrients. 

The fungi also help defend your indoor plant from insects, like mealy bugs, by reinforcing the plant’s chemical defenses.

What’s more?

They promote moisture retention and help your indoor plant resist water stress — so your peace lily plant can handle possible delays in watering.

Here’s how to use Rosy for the best plant care:

Step 1: Pre-Moisten

We recommend making your Rosy soil moist before using it for excellent results. 

You can do this by adding the peace lily soil to a pot and watering it until it releases a few drops when squeezed.

Step 2: Pot or repot

Fill a container (with a drainage hole) 1/3 with the pre-moistened Rosy peace lily soil mix.

Step 3: Plant

Remove your peace lily plant from its current soil or container. Before placing the peace lily plant in the new pot, loosen the root ball and remove soil debris around it.

Add more pre-moistened Rosy to the remaining space, leaving one or two inches at the top for watering.

Step 4: Water 

Gently water your plant, letting the excess water drain out completely to avoid root rot. 

For future waterings, you could bottom water your peace lily houseplant by keeping the pot in a tray/container of water. You can occasionally top water to flush salts from the soil.

At Rosy, we strive to promote earth-positivity. 

That’s why we maintain a net negative carbon footprint for our entire supply chain, from production to delivery.

 

How do we do this? 

By carefully curating the most eco-friendly ingredients (biochar) and using sustainable shipping and packaging methods. That’s how each bag of peace lily plant soil captures more than 2 kg of CO2 from the carbon cycle!

Peace Lily Soil & Care

The peace lily (Spathiphyllum cochlearispathum) is a type of tropical plant from South America with over 47 species, including Domino peace lily.  

These beginner friendly house plants symbolize peace and are easy to care for, requiring bright indirect light and slight moisture. 

Give them proper care, and they’ll bloom annually, producing a white flower. This “flower” is actually a spathe — a modified leaf surrounding flower clusters.

Here’s what you should remember when growing peace lily plants:

1. Use The Best Soil for Your Peace Lily

Choosing suitable soil is critical for peace lily care. 

Why?

Although peace lily plants are tolerant, they need a certain type of soil to thrive. 

Choose a soil mix with:

  • Sufficient drainage to avoid soggy soil. Excess water in the soil saturates the plant’s roots and causes root rot. 
  • Loose, aerated soil for root growth. 
  • Essential nutrients, house plant fertilizer, or worm castings to ensure plant growth.

Some people use succulent or cactus soil mixed with orchid bark and coarse sand for drainage and soil aeration.

However, cactus soil doesn’t have the necessary nutrients for peace lily plants.

Also, avoid soil containing unsustainable amendments like coco coir, peat moss, and perlite. Instead, opt for high-quality, eco-friendly potting soil like Rosy.

2. Peace Lily Care Tips

Once you’ve chosen the best soil for peace lily, here are a few other aspects to consider:

  • Like snake plants, peace lilies are native to tropical regions like the Amazon, thriving in warm, humid conditions. 
  • Keep your plant somewhere with sufficient but indirect sunlight. 
  • Choose a pot that retains enough water. But it must have good drainage with drainage holes at the bottom to release excess water.  
  • Water your peace lily plant when the top 1-2 inches of soil is dry. You can mist the peace lily leaves between watering. 
  • Repotting peace lilies annually can prolong their lives, especially plants that are root bound (tangled roots with no space for growth). When repotting, use fresh potting soil but mix in some soil from the old pot.

3. Peace Lily Plant Problems

Unfavorable conditions, overwatering, and the wrong soil mix can harm your peace lily plant.

Look out for these red flags:

  • Yellow leaf and curled foliage: Can happen when your peace lily receives excessive direct sunlight. Position it away from direct sunlight to avoid yellow leaves and wilting.
  • Drooping /yellowing leaf edges: A common problem if your peace lily is kept in low light conditions. To avoid this, move the peace lily plant into an area with sufficient but indirect light. 
  • Brown leaf tips: A buildup of minerals and salts from tap water can cause a green leaf to turn brown. Flush the soil with distilled water regularly. 
  • Root rot: This is caused by overwatering or insufficient drainage. Cut back on watering, use a pot with good drainage, and well draining soil like Rosy to fix this.
  • Fungus gnats: Fungus gnats (tiny insects) may appear on your peace lily if your soil mix has peat moss.

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.

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.

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 🤗.

My Favorite Soil So Far

Rosy first caught my eye because of how environmentally conscious the brand is, and I couldn’t wait to get it. It’s treating my plants extremely well right now and they’ve never looked better. Rosy has easily become my favorite option for soil, and I’m looking forward to getting more in the future
