Vegan Compost

Our aged compost provides abundant organic matter, creates soil structure, and supports optimal drainage. This organic matter naturally add plant-available nutrients without the need for chemical fertilizers and support a thriving community of beneficial microbes. More broadly, composting upcycles organic waste, preventing it from going to landfills where it would emit greenhouse gasses.

Carbon-Negative Biochar

Meet our not-so-secret ingredient! Biochar is produced by converting organic waste material into a charcoal-like substance that roots love. It’s lightweight and porous, helping to conserve nutrients and water. The best part? Biochar sequesters carbon: for every ton of biochar produced, 3 tons of CO2 are removed from the carbon cycle.

Root Boosting Mycorrhizae

Mycorrhizae (mahy-kuh-rahy-zee) are naturally-occurring fungi that mesh with plant roots to increase the amount of nutrients and water they can access. In this process, they release a gum-like substance called glomalin, which helps to further lock in moisture and hold on to nutrients. What can’t they do?

Pre-Moisten: We highly recommend wetting Rosy before planting: in a container, sprinkle Rosy with water until it has absorbed enough to release a few drops when squeezed.

Pot or re-pot: Select a well-draining container and fill ~⅓ with Rosy. Be sure to use gloves when handling the soil.

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

Water: Water slowly until it drains from the bottom. For future waterings, we recommend bottom watering, with an occasional top watering to flush the soil.

When we account for our entire supply chain, all the way from our production facility to your home, our products have a net negative carbon footprint. All in, our Indoor Potting Mix sequesters more than 2 kg of CO2 from the emission cycle. We managed this by carefully considering our shipping, packaging, and use of low-carbon and carbon-negative ingredients 🌎 like biochar. Read our Life Cycle Asessment.

FAQs

Rosy is all natural, peat moss free, synthetic fertilizer free, and consciously sourced from renewable resources. We've made these choices not only because they're better for your plants, but because they're also better for our planet. 

Instead of using the unnatural, high-emitting ingredients that much of the potting soil industry uses, we've opted for natural, carbon negative ingredients. This means that every product sold is Earth Positive, removing more CO2 from the air than it emits. You can read more about our mission here.

Our products are made using a carbon-negative process. This means that our products remove more CO2 from the atmosphere than they put into it. When organic materials are sent to a landfill to decompose, they release methane and CO2 which are two potent greenhouse gases. By redirecting organic material from landfills and stabilizing its carbon, we prevent those greenhouse gases from being released. This carbon-negative cycle effectively turns your soil into a carbon sink. You can learn more about what we mean by Earth Positive on our Mission page.

Our soils are blended to suit the needs of Tropicals, Philodendron, Pothos and Trailing plants, and Ferns.

While peat moss is an awesome growth medium for indoor plants, it's not-so-awesome for our planet. In fact, the peat moss industry accounts for 5% of total global CO2 emissions. (More than twice the airline industry!) So, we've opted for planet-friendly ingredients like biochar and compost to stand in for peat in our mixes.

This 8 qt. bag will fill:

- 4 to 6 medium 6" pots

- 2 to 4 large 8" pots

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
