☑ Aids moisture control and stimulates plant growth
☑ The best soil for flowering plants

Vegan Compost

Our aged and plant-based compost provides abundant organic material and supports moisture retention and drainage.

Even better?

It’s packed with vital plant nutrients for perennial and annual flowers. 

So this organic fertilizer reduces the need for synthetic fertilizer, which can negatively impact soil pH levels and microbes.

Carbon-Negative Biochar

Meet the star ingredient of our soil mix: Biochar

This sustainable soil amendment enhances nutrient and moisture retention in the soil, stimulating plant growth.

What makes biochar sustainable?

For every ton of biochar produced, three tons of CO2 are captured!

Bottom line: Rosy’s soil for flowers is an excellent alternative to a garden center soil mix containing unsustainable additives like peat moss (sphagnum moss) and perlite.

Root Boosting Mycorrhizae

Mycorrhizae (mahy-kuh-rahy-zee) are plant-friendly fungi forming mutually beneficial bonds with plant roots.

The benefit?

Mycorrhizae form a filamentous structure (a secondary root system), allowing indoor plants and flowering plants to absorb more water and plant food.

They produce a gum-like substance, glomalin, which further locks in moisture and nutrients.

Step 1: Pre-Moisten

We recommend moistening Rosy’s soil for flowers before use. 

Place the soil in a container and spray with water until it releases a few drops when pressed.

Step 2: Pot or re-pot

Choose a container with drainage holes and fill 1/3 with the pre-moistened Rosy potting mix. 

You can use Rosy for a container garden, raised bed, or potted houseplant.

Step 3: Plant

Gently take your plants out of their current container, removing any debris around the plant roots.

Center the plant in the new pot, and add more Rosy potting soil. Leave an inch of space at the top for watering.

Step 4: Water

Water your plants from the top for the first watering, allowing the excess water to drain from the bottom. 

For future waterings, we recommend bottom watering to keep the soil evenly moist. You can do an occasional top watering to flush the soil of any salt and mineral build-up.

Rosy’s entire process, from manufacturing to delivery, has a net negative carbon footprint!

How do we do this?

We carefully select the most sustainable shipping and packaging options. 

We also use carbon-negative ingredients (like biochar) and avoid unsustainable ingredients like peat and perlite. 

Moreover, every bag of Rosy potting mix captures 2kg of CO2 from the atmosphere.

How to Grow a Thriving Flower Garden 

Flowers brighten up any space. 

Plant them in an in-ground garden bed, create a beautiful container garden, or keep flowering houseplants in your room for extra color or fragrance.   

The catch?

Flowering plants need the right soil and conditions to, well…flower.  

Let’s explore what goes into the best soil and care for flowers: 

1. Indoor Soil for Flowers

Healthy soil for indoor flowering plants should have:

  • Sufficient plant nutrients: Organic matter, microbes, and nutrients (like phosphorus and nitrogen) supply plant food for plants to grow and produce beautiful flowers.

    You could add fertilizer to enrich plant soil, but synthetic fertilizer can harm the soil pH level and microbes. Bone meal or worm castings are good sources of plant nutrients if you prefer an eco-friendly and organic fertilizer.
  • Good structure: Poor soil may compact over time, limiting airflow around the roots. Use potting soil with soil amendments like biochar, orchid bark, mulch, or earthworm castings, which enhance structure and aeration.
  • Proper drainage: Use well-draining soil to avoid root rot from excessive moisture. However, it shouldn’t drain too quickly, or the plants won’t be able to absorb water.

For a potted plant, use a nutrient-rich growing medium like Rosy’s indoor potting soil — it’s well-formulated for planting flowers. 

2. Outdoor Soil for Flowers

Generally, you may find four types of soil (native soil) in your garden:

  • Silty soil: Silt soil can be relatively good soil for outdoor flower beds. It may have good organic matter and moisture retention but could compact when wet.
  • Clay soil: Clay soil is generally considered poor soil because it’s slow-draining.
  • Sandy soil: Sandy soil tends to have poor moisture and nutrient retention.
  • Loam soil: Loam is a mixture of silty, clay, and sandy soil. It’s usually good soil, though it may contain rocks.

Depending on the soil type, decide whether you need to supplement the native soil with store-bought topsoil.

How does that work?

You can purchase bagged soil (garden soil) at a garden center or online retailer. 

Usually, bagged soils are enriched with compost and can improve the soil in an in-ground flower bed or vegetable garden plot. 

Mix our Rosy soil with the existing soil in your in-ground flower bed or vegetable garden plot. This will improve the soil characteristics to support flowering plant growth.


3. Light, Watering & General Care

Follow our handy tips to give your flowers the best possible care:

  • Research your flowering plants before planting to determine what kind of light they need – bright sunlight, indirect light, partial shade, etc.
  • Water your flowers in the early morning or evening so that the sun doesn’t evaporate the moisture before the plants can absorb it.
  • Water the soil only when the top 1-2 inches are dry to avoid overwatering. 
  • Feel free to pick your flowers as they bloom. Remove the spent flower heads or brown foliage to encourage new growth.

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.

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!

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
