Biochar is a horticultural charcoal that holds onto oxygen and nutrients while also storing microbes and carbon in the soil.

Pumice is a naturally occurring volcanic rock that is lightweight and porous, helping to improve soil drainage and aeration.

Mycorrhizae are beneficial microorganisms that form a symbiotic relationship with plant roots, allowing the plants to absorb more nutrients.

Sand has large grain size, coarse texture, and high silica content to support soil drainage.

Pine Bark Fines are a byproduct of the mulch industry which enhance soil structure and improve aeration.

Compost helps reduce waste in landfills by turning green waste and wood waste into a useful source of nutrients for plants.


To make the transition easier for your plant roots, we recommend pre-moistening Rosy Soil. Slowly sprinkle water over the soil in a separate container until it is slightly moist. Work through any dry pockets and aim for light, even moisture throughout the mix.


Select a well-draining planter and partially fill with a base of pre-moistened Rosy Soil.


Gently release your plant from its current container, loosen its roots, and center into the pot. Fill the remaining space with Rosy Soil, leaving an inch at the top for easy watering.


After planting, it is best to wait a week or two before watering to allow the roots time to adjust to their new environment. We recommend bottom watering, with an occasional top watering to refresh the soil.

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


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 cactus & succulent potting mix is a positive resource for your indoor garden and the environment.

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 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 soil mix with Rosy. 

Our 4 Quart bag of Rosy Cactus & Succulent Mix will fill:

2 to 3 medium 6" pots

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

Beautiful, dark sandy soil. I repotted all my cacti and my snake plant in it, it hasn't been long enough to know how much it helps but I love the look and feel of the soil.

Good soil

My plants seem happy with this soil. It looks rich but does drain quickly, which is good. Not a large volume for the price.

Great soil mix for succulents

This is a great succulent mix that isn’t too lumpy. A bit of added gravel and peat moss which is perfect for my planters. I think my plants will continue to thrive with this mixed in!

I recommend this to anyone who is needing to pot cactus or succulents. It is made with quality ingredients and feels like it’s very well draining. It’s got everything your plants will need to thrive. It’s also enough for several smaller planters or maybe 1 or 2 medium sized ones.
