Carbon-Negative Biochar

Biochar, the core of our house plant soil mix, enhances the soil’s nutrient and water retention. 

It also improves soil porosity (which enables plant roots’ development and prevents root rot). 

This creates the best conditions for your houseplant to flourish!

Each ton of biochar produced captures three tons of CO2 from the carbon cycle, preventing it from contributing to climate change. 

This makes it an ideal, earth-friendly soil amendment — unlike conventional houseplant soil ingredients like peat moss, coconut coir (coco coir), perlite, and vermiculite. 

Root Boosting Mycorrhizae

Mycorrhizae (mahy-kuh-rahy-zee) are houseplant friendly fungi that create a beneficial fungal structure on plant roots. 

How does that help?

It improves your plant’s ability to absorb water and nutrients, allowing them to make the most of our fertile indoor potting soil.

Moreover, mycorrhizae release a gum-like substance called glomalin that helps to further lock in moisture and nutrients. 

Pine Bark Fines

Pine bark fines are a natural, eco-friendly ingredient that improves the texture and structure of our indoor plant soil mix.

The small, finely ground pieces of pine bark increase the porosity of the soil, allowing for better air flow and water drainage. This supports healthy root growth, prevents root rot, and enhances nutrient uptake, ultimately leading to thriving houseplants.

Pine bark fines are sustainably sourced from the byproducts of the timber industry, reducing waste and supporting a circular economy

Compost

Our aged compost adds abundant organic matter to the indoor plant soil mix, improving the soil structure and drainage. 

It’s also a natural source of essential plant nutrients, like nitrogen and potassium. This reduces the need for chemical fertilizers, which acidify soil and harm soil microbes when used excessively. 

More broadly, composting upcycles organic waste that normally goes to landfills and emits greenhouse gasses.

Rosy soil is easy to use, even for beginners. Just follow these four steps:

Step 1: Pre-Moisten

Pre-moisten your Rosy indoor potting mix before adding it to your pots.

You can do this by adding the soil mix for indoor plants into a separate container and watering it until it releases a few drops when squeezed. 

Step 2: Pot or repot

Fill the base of a well-draining container with the pre-moistened indoor soil mix. 

Step 3: Plant

Slowly release your houseplant from its current soil, loosening the root ball and removing any soil debris. Then, set the plant into the container with Rosy indoor potting soil mix.

Finally, fill the space with more Rosy, leaving an inch at the top for easy watering. 

Step 4: Water

Water the indoor pot soil thoroughly from the top until the excess water drains through the drainage hole. 

For future waterings, we recommend bottom watering (by placing the pot or container in a tray with water), so the soil absorbs the water evenly. You can occasionally top water to flush salts or minerals accumulated in the soil.

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

How?

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 house plant potting mix is a positive resource for your indoor garden and the environment.

FAQs

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 house plant 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 houseplant soil mix with Rosy. 

You can use Rosy indoor soil for plants like: 

Tropical plants (monstera, money tree, ZZ)

Philodendron

Pothos

Trailing plants 

Ferns

Why is it the best soil for these plants?

Rosy is a well draining potting soil, offering an optimal balance of drainage and moisture retention. Plus, it’s fertile and supports beneficial microbes, which help your indoor plant thrive.

Our 8 Quart bag of Rosy indoor potting mix will fill:

4 to 6 medium 6" pots

Our 4 Quart bag of Rosy indoor potting mix will fill:

2 to 3 medium 6" pots

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

Create beautiful plants!!

This potty mix is different than anything I’ve ever used. I haven’t had to add to the soil. I’m able to use the soil as it comes. Seems like it’s highly nutritious. I have half my plants potted in it. I plan to pot the rest of them in the same soil!

Highly recommend! So far so good!

Only thing that I noticed it didn’t expect was that when I watered the water will run black. So don’t walk a drippy plant across the house. 🙄

Nice soil. Super dark and nutritious looking. A bit on the expensive side, so I'm not sure I'll keep purchasing the houseplant one , but definitely buy more of the cactus blend.

Wear gloves lest you look like a Victorian orphan

I got this soil to try to revive a very sad plant in my house. I was previously using a *miraculous growing soil* but I didn’t feel like it kept moisture as well as I wanted. What I really like about this mixture is the texture. It feels almost like sand, it’s fine and soft and absolute black. Which is only relevant if you don’t wear gloves while potting…………… I didn’t feel like I was fighting all the pieces of bark and mulch normally found in these houseplant mixtures, which made planting a bit easier in my pots (they’re long and skinny so there’s plenty of space for roots but not for hands messing around). This bag filled one 14x3x4” pot (nearly to the top) and a 10x3x6” pot (shallow). If you’re conservative with soil then I’d say its A decent size for the price, but if you are on a budget or have an entire greenhouse of plants then the cost isn’t sustainable. The packaging is nice, I truly appreciate that it is resealable. Pouring was easy when the soil was dry, but I decided to pre-moisten the second batch in the bag since I knew I was going to use it up and it got all stuck up in the zipper flap. A negligible complaint, I think. It’s been a few days since I repotted and the jury is still out if it can revive my severely neglected pothos, but so far it’s looking good. I don’t see any signs of shock and the moisture seems to be keeping. Overall I think it’s worth a shot, even at the higher price point.
