-- Succulent Market, an online retail company that sells cactus and succulents, will begin to sell soil for cactus and succulent plants. According to the Succulent Market team there is a huge demand for cactus and succulent soil that is not being met. Succulent Market receive many emails a week inquiring about cactus and succulent soil and if there is a way to purchase cactus and succulent soil from their retail site.
Why is there a demand for cactus and succulent soil?
When primarily thinking about how to pot a cactus or succulent in a new pot or planter one would most likely attempt to use a general potting soil from a large retailer like Home Depot or Lowes. Surprisingly, utilizing a general potting soil can be detrimental to cactus and succulent plants. This is because cactus and succulents are drought tolerant plants that enjoy dry arid climates. This means that cactus and succulents require a soil that can quickly drains water, this is because if cactus and succulents are planted in a regular potting mix too much water will accumulate in the soil, which will cause the cactus or succulent to rot. For this reason, succulents need a sandy soil that can get rid of excess water quickly. This will allow cactus and succulents to receive water and air, while not simply just drowning in a soil that is too moist.
According to Succulent Market, the fast draining soil requirement demanded by cactus and succulents has created an incredible demand for cactus and succulent soil. The reason for this is because it is incredibly hard to create a cactus and succulent soil that has the perfect balance of withholding just the right amount of water while draining out the rest. This balancing act that is hard to ascertain when creating a homemade potting mix has caused consumers to attempt to buy cactus and succulent soil. Succulent Market wishes to fill this demand, as the company who has been growing cactus and succulents for 50 years, has found the perfect mix of perlite and peat moss for the perfect fast draining cactus and succulent soil.
