How to use the Aroid Soil Mix
Using the mix is easy! start with removing as much of the old soil as possible. Gently squeeze the pot while holding it sideways to loosen up the plant. Run the roots under lukewarm tap water to remove the last pieces and bits.
Also, make sure to remove any dead foliage that may still be on the plant using scissors. Now your plant is ready for its fresh Aroid soil. Add a small layer of Aroid mix at the bottom of the pot.
Place the plant in the pot, and slowly add Aroid soil to the sides to fill it up. Make sure that the point where the roots meet the plant is just buried under the Aroid soil.
Lightly pat the Aroid mix down into the pot. Ensure to water the Aroid mix thoroughly after repotting, as this helps settle the mix and roots down.
How the aroid mix works
With years of experience in caring for these aroids, Sybotanica has come up with the best formula. The aroid mix contains lots of worm castings, which add to the microbial life of the soil. Worm castings contain a high level of nutrients that they leach slowly, so your plant can never burn.
The aroid mix allows the larger aroid roots to access the oxygen they need to grow big and healthy by having a larger quantity of perlite and coco husk. The coco coir is a great sustainable base that doesn’t compact and holds on to the water for a longer time, without staying too wet. This way you can wait longer before watering your aroid again.

The original habitat of the aroid plants
Aroids originate from tropical rainforests where the humidity is high. They live in well-draining, airy & often constantly moist soil. The rainforest floor is full of nutrients from composted organic matter.
How to care for aroid’s
Most aroid’s like a moderate amount of water, let the top 2 inches of soil dry out between watering. You can stick your finger in to test if the soil is ready for some fresh water. As they are tropical, they prefer higher humidity.
They prefer a normal amount of fertiliser and will grow larger when combined with a moss pole, as this mimics their natural habitat where they climb up onto trees, rocks & other objects. They prefer indirect sunlight and do well in bathrooms, as the humidity is usually higher!
