☑ HHigh-quality dracaena soil with Earth Positive ingredients (no peat moss, perlite, or coco coir!)
☑ Supports good drainage with optimal water retention for adequately moist soil
☑ The perfect potting mix to maintain a healthy dracaena plant

Carbon-Negative Biochar

Biochar is a lightweight and porous substance that enhances soil aeration and drainage. It also facilitates nutrient retention, keeping the soil fertile for longer. 

Even better?

For every ton of biochar produced, three tons of CO2 are removed from the carbon cycle! 

So, Rosy’s Earth Positive soil is unlike a conventional dracaena mix made with unsustainable ingredients like peat moss, coco coir, pumice, or vermiculite.

Vegan Compost

Our aged, vegan compost increases organic matter in the soil mix, enhancing soil structure and optimizing drainage for your houseplant. 

It’s also a vital source of plant nutrients like nitrogen and potassium, minimizing the need for chemical fertilizers. 

Root Boosting Mycorrhizae

Our dracaena soil contains root enriching mycorrhizal fungi.

The benefit?

The fungi improve water and nutrient access for your dracaena plant. They also release a gum-like substance called glomalin that locks in moisture and nutrients.

Moreover, these plant-friendly fungi protect your dracaena from insects and diseases caused by soil-borne pathogens.

Step 1: Pre-Moisten

We recommend pre-moistening your Rosy dracaena soil mix before planting. 

Add your dracaena soil mix to a container and water it. Keep watering until the moist soil releases a few drops when squeezed. 

Step 2: Pot or repot

Take a well-draining soil container and fill 1/3 with the pre-moistened Rosy dracaena soil mix. 

Step 3: Plant

Gently remove your dracaena plant from its current soil without disturbing the root system.

Loosen the root ball and center the plant in the new pot. Fill the pot with pre-moistened Rosy soil mix, leaving an inch at the top for watering. 

Step 4: Water

Slowly water your dracaena from the top for the first watering. Allow the excess water to drain from the pot's drainage holes. 

For future waterings, we suggest bottom watering (by placing your dracaena plant container in a water tray) and occasional top watering to flush the soil.  

Rosy’s entire supply chain, from production to delivery, has a negative carbon footprint

Wondering how we achieve this?

We consciously curate an Earth Positive system using sustainable ingredients (like biochar), packaging materials, and shipping services. 

Plus, every bag of Rosy soil captures more than 2 kg of CO2 from the carbon cycle!

Dracaena Soil & Plant Care Guide

Dracaena is a beautiful indoor plant with lush foliage (long green leaves). 

Did you know the Dracaena genus comprises 120+ types of dracaena?

Some popular varieties include:

  • Dracaena draco (dragon tree)
  • Dracaena fragrans (corn plant or cornstalk plant)
  • Dracaena marginata (Madagascar dragon tree)
  • Dracaena marginata colorama
  • Dracaena sanderiana (lucky bamboo)
  • Dracaena trifasciata (snake plant)
  • Dracaena massangeana (money plant)
  • Dracaena deremensis (Janet Craig) 

Regardless of the variety, dracaena is a slow-growing houseplant you can easily nurture in your garden.  

But how do you care for a dracaena?

Let’s find out:

1. Choosing the Best Soil for Dracaena 

Indoor plants like the dracaena may survive in loamy, succulent, or cactus soil. 

But to thrive, dracaenas need:  

  • Well-draining soil with optimal water retention to keep the soil moist. Excessive water retention could lead to root rot.
  • Light, loose soil with good aeration.
  • Soil rich in organic matter and nutrients to support plant growth.

Wondering which potting soil meets all these criteria?

Rosy’s dracaena soil mix!

Our potting soil is crafted for different types of dracaena, including Dracaena fragrans plants and Dracaena marginata plants — unlike conventional garden soil or cactus soil. 

2. Maintaining Your Dracaena Plant

Follow these care tips for your dracaena: 

  • Like bamboo or orchid plants, dracaena prefers bright indirect light and high humidity.
  • If possible, opt for distilled water since tap water may contain high fluoride content.
  • Prune your dracaena during the growing season (spring and summer) — use the stem cuttings for propagation.
  • Like a monstera plant (or most indoor plants), water your dracaena when the top 2-3 inches of soil are dry.
  • Fertilize with indoor plant food (like compost or worm castings) every two weeks during the growing season.

3. Identifying Issues In Your Dracaena Plant

A dracaena plant has lush green leaves. 

Observe your dracaena leaves to identify improper plant care. 

Three obvious signs include: 

  • Withering leaves: Extreme low light or bright light (direct sunlight), overwatering, and dry soil may cause your plant's leaves to fall. However, a falling lower leaf is mostly a natural occurrence.
  • Yellowing leaves: Yellow leaves could occur due to high fluoride tap water, excess water, or pest infestations (spider mites or mealy bugs). But older dracaena leaves turning yellow is part of the plant’s natural cycle.
  • Browning leaves: Brown leaf tips or brown leaves may indicate dry soil or low humidity.

4. Repotting Your Dracaena Plant 

Repot your dracaena if it’s root-bound or has root rot.

Follow our DIY tips when repotting dracaenas: 

  • Add distilled water to your dracaena houseplant a day before repotting. This helps hold the soil together during repotting. 
  • To prevent lower leaves and foliage from getting in the way, tie them up with ribbons/strings before repotting.
  • Place the plant away from direct sunlight to keep the soil moist and reduce repotting stress.

Well worth using!

I used Rosy soil to plant succulents. I mixed it with a little bit of succulent mix and within 2 weeks, the succulents had grown larger and had new growth shoots. I bought more to transplant herbs for the spring. It's well worth the price and it's all I'll buy now.

Great product!

I waited a bit to post to see how my Alocasia were handling the change. They absolutely love Rosy Soil. Every single one of my Alocasia are pushing out new leaves and retaining more of the older ones. It stays airy while retaining a fair amount of moisture. I've also used it in a self-watering pot with a philo camposportoanum and it's sent out tons of new leaves and loads of aerial roots. It's so happy.

Great product, my plants love it. And I'm so happy to be using a sustainable resource for my potting soil now. I'm allergic to coconut (and even cor processing is horrible for the environment) and peat is such a precious resource in the environment that makes them it's really disheartening to have limited options. Allergy meds and tons of salt from processing cor or slowly destroying a natural wonder were the only options I had. Thank you for producing such a quality, sustainable product. ❤️❤️ I'm trying to do my part and Rosy Soil makes it a lot easier to make a better choice. ❤️

Enhanced potting soil

I have purchased this soil several times and used it “as is” and recently I mixed it half and half with some greenhouse purchased soil. I seem to like it better as it holds moisture better. The Rosy Soil has been enhancing and promoting the growth of my plants. I plan on using it for all of my plants once I get to the larger ones. It’s a great product for all of my species so far. That is African violets to ferns to figs. It’s great!

My plants are thriving after using Rosy!

Winter in NJ is always rough on my house plants. I added a layer of Rosy Soil to all and they look better than ever!
