Primo Potting Mix is a 2:1 mix that is specially selected to provide the best drainage, water retention, and nutrients to get your new tree started. This is of orchid bark and orchid mix designed for tropical plants and trees alike. Inspired by the 5:1:1 citrus potting mix, the Do-It-Yourself kit empowers you with the ingredients to make the perfect potting mix for your fruit trees like Citrus, Figs, Guavas & more.
Since this is a DIY mix, that means that you can mix up as much or as little as you like so long as you stick to the ratio (2:1) of two parts Orchid bark and one part Orchid Mix.
3 Bag Mix: Use both bags of orchid bark, the full bag of orchid mix, and thoroughly combine to create the Primo Potting mix. This is the perfect amount of soil to shift up to 3 Entry Size or 3 Primo Size trees into 3-gallon containers or 1 Premium Size tree into a 7-10 gallon container.
