☑ High-quality snake plant soil containing all-natural and earth-positive ingredients (no peat moss, pumice, perlite, or coconut coir)
☑ Enhances drainage, improves moisture retention, and contains organic matter
☑ The best soil mix for a thriving snake plant

Vegan Compost

Our plant-based, aged compost creates a fertile environment for snake plant care — adding abundant organic matter, enhancing soil structure, and optimizing drainage. 

It’s a natural source of essential plant nutrients. So you won’t have to use synthetic fertilizers, which have a dreadful impact on soil pH and microbes.

Carbon-Negative Biochar

Biochar is the crux of our earth-positive soil mix. It’s a sustainable soil amendment that boosts snake plant growth by enhancing water conservation, nutrient retention, and root development. 

The best part? It helps capture atmospheric carbon dioxide! Every ton of biochar produced removes three tons of CO2 from the carbon cycle. 

So it’s the perfect alternative to unsustainable materials like peat moss, coconut coir (coco coir), and perlite.

Root Boosting Mycorrhizae

Mycorrhizae (mahy-kuh-rahy-zee) are plant-friendly fungi that enhance your snake plant’s ability to absorb water and essential nutrients. 

They form a mutually beneficial partnership with the plant’s roots to help it thrive.

The fungi also help your indoor plant resist water stress — which means your snake plant will be better equipped to handle delays in the watering schedule. 

Step 1: Pre-Moisten

Rosy does best when pre-moistened before adding it to pots. 

Add our snake plant soil to a container, then sprinkle it with water until it retains enough to release a few drops when pressed. 

Step 2: Pot or repot

Take a well-draining container or planter and fill up 1/3 with the pre-moistened snake plant soil. 

Step 3: Plant

Gently release your snake plant from its current soil and remove any debris that may be attached to its roots. 

Loosen the root ball before placing the plant into the center of your container with Rosy. Fill the remaining space with pre-moistened soil, leaving an inch at the top for watering.

Step 4: Water

Slowly water snake plant and the soil mixture, letting the excess water drain from the pot’s drainage hole. 

After the first watering, we recommend bottom watering (by placing your snake plant container in a tray of water) with only a periodical top watering to flush the soil.

Rosy thrives on sustainability! 

We maintain the most eco-friendly processes — from production to delivery. And we’re happy to share that our entire supply chain has a net negative carbon footprint

In fact, your Rosy Snake Plant Soil Mix captures more than 2 kg of CO2 from the carbon cycle. 

How is this possible? We consciously curate the most sustainable shipping, packaging, and carbon-negative ingredients like biochar.

About Snake Plant Soil & Care

Snake plant (Dracaena trifasciata — formerly Sansevieria trifasciata) is a popular houseplant that improves air quality. This succulent is also called mother-in-law’s tongue.

The plant requires low maintenance and indirect sunlight. It’s also drought tolerant, storing water in its rhizomes and leaves.  

Wondering how to nurture your snake plant?

Here are four important factors to consider:

1. Using the Right Soil for Your Snake Plant

Snake plants need well draining soil since they’re susceptible to root rot. 

Ideally, good soil for your snake plant should:

  • Be light and loose.
  • Have adequate aeration and good drainage.
  • Have moderate water retention.
  • Contain essential nutrients or organic material.
  • Have a slightly alkaline or acidic soil pH.

That means you need high-quality indoor potting soil (like Rosy) rather than garden soil.

And since it’s a succulent plant, your snake plant will grow in cactus soil or succulent soil containing coarse sand or biochar.

It’s also best to choose good soil with sustainable ingredients and organic material that provide long-term benefits, unlike peat moss which compacts with time.

2. Identifying Issues in Snake Plant Care

Unfavorable conditions or the wrong kind of soil mix can harm your indoor plant.

Here are some signs to look out for:

  • Green leaves turn yellow or brown (excessive sunlight and overwatering).
  • Leaves become brittle or mushy (excessive or slow drainage).
  • Leaves start to droop or fall (insufficient nutrients).
  • Root system develops root rot (excessive water retention).

Remember, snake plants wouldn’t thrive in fast-draining dry soil. 

The best soil for snake plants (Dracaena trifasciata) is a houseplant soil mixture, like Rosy.

Note: Yellowing leaves are natural in aging plants. You can cut them off without worrying if it’s just a yellow leaf or two among healthy green leaves.

3. Repotting Snake Plant

Your house plant may face growth issues in old soil. 

So, you may need to repot a snake plant into fresh potting soil or succulent soil mix.

Follow these no-nonsense pointers when repotting snake plant into fresh soil:

  • Gently remove the root ball of the plant from the soil.
  • Prune away diseased leaves or roots (take a healthy leaf cutting to propagate snake plant) before repotting the plant.
  • Repot snake plant (either an old or new plant) into a new pot with fresh soil.
  • Choose a container that facilitates good drainage, like a terracotta pot instead of a plastic pot. The best pot should be wider than the snake plant’s root ball.
  • Ensure the root ball is at least an inch below the rim.
  • Repot snake plant during the growing season in spring and summer.

4. Maintaining an Ideal Environment

Use these tips to provide your snake plant with a thriving environment:

  • We recommend keeping this house plant in areas with indirect sunlight (low light conditions). 
  • You should also water snake plant only when the top 2-3 inches of soil is dry.
  • Repot snake plant every three to four years in fresh potting mix for optimal growth.

It’s good a little pricey

So I wanted to try it and I really like it. I hope the price comes down in the future because it is on the pricey side. I think it’s fine if you have just a couple of plants but u have over 60 so it gets pricey!

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!
