How to use the Cacti & Succulent 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, remove any dead foliage that may still be on the plant using scissors. Now your plant is ready for its fresh Cacti & Succulent soil. Add a small layer of Cacti & Succulent mix at the bottom of the pot.

Place the plant in the pot, and slowly add Cacti & Succulent soil to the sides to fill it up. Make sure that the point where the roots meet the plant is just buried under the Cacti & Succulent soil. 

Lightly pat the Cacti & Succulent mix down into the pot. Make sure to water the Cacti & Succulent mix thoroughly after repotting, as this helps settle the mix and roots down.

Why the Cacti & Succulent mix works. 

Gritty, airy, and well-draining are the main characteristics of this mix. To avoid overwatering there is a great amount of perlite, pumice & horticultural sand. This prevents root rot. The nutrients are designed to support the root, stem & leaf growth of your plant. 

    The original habitat of the Cacti & Succulent plants

    Most cacti & succulent-type plants originate from dry, desert locations. These habitats have long dry seasons and little nutrients in the water. Both types of plants use their leaves & body to store water for these periods. The desert locations are usually sandy & rocky and drain quickly. This Cacti & Succulent mix mimics that environment.

    How to care for Cacti & Succulent plants

    Cacti & succulents cover many thousands of species. Water the cacti & succulent mix once every 2 weeks during the hotter period (spring and summer) and once every month during the colder period (autumn and winter). Only fertilise during the hotter period with specialized cacti & succulent fertiliser.

    Our cacti & succulent mix contains nutrients for at least 180 days, so no need to add fertiliser until a new hotter period has arrived. For some succulents, you will need to water them more often. A great tip for succulents is that when the leaves get soft to the touch they can use a drink. 

    Be sure to completely wet the cacti & succulent mix when watering, a common misconception is that you should water only a little every time. Imagine a cactus in the desert, once it does get water from rainfall, it will be completely drenched for a while. Give your plant the time to suck up some water into the cacti & succulent mix. 

    Cacti & succulents prefer a large amount of sunlight and can handle a few hours of sun, depending on the species.

          Socially responsible production

          At Sybotanica we not only want to make plants happy, but people happy as well. In our production team we exclusively hire people with a distance from the workforce, and help them rehabilitate to the normal working life.


          Take Peter for example:

          Peter has been with Sybotanica since the 1st hour, and has now been promoted to head of production & a permanent contract! Where he was the first employee, he now manages a team of 3 production workers.

          What makes this achievement even more impressive is that Peter achieved all this with only 10% visibility! 🕶️ With a few minor adjustments to his working environment, Peter is able to perform his job 100%.

          Peter has now been through two moves and knows all the ins & outs of Sybotanica. He can even feel by the potting soil which variety it is. That's quite a challenge with 16 different mixes!

          We are confident that Peter will keep production running smoothly in the coming years too! 💪

                      FAQ's

                      Check out the SYBASoil Guide

                      How much Cacti & Succulent mix do I need?

                      Check out this pot volume calculator tool to calculate how much Cacti & Succulent mix you need.

                      When do I need to re-feed the soil?

                      The nutrients in SYBASoil will run out in ~6 months on average. We recommend refeeding by removing the top part of the soil and adding 10-20% of the volume with fresh worm castings.

                      How long does SYBASoil stay fresh?

                      You can store SYBASoil for about 2 years. Make sure to store it cool, dark and closed off. The effectiveness of the nutrients can degrade over the years. Simply add some fresh worm castings to give the soil new life.

                      When do I repot the plant?

                      We recommend repotting once any of these things happen:
                      - You see roots growing out of the bottom of the pot
                      - The soil dries very quickly between watering
                      - The plant is top-heavy and wants to fall over
                      - Roots are pushing the plant up and out of the container
                      - Every 1 to 2 years

                      How to recycle SYBASoil packaging

                      Our packaging can be recycled at your local plastic recycling facility.

                      You can also re-use it for storage, or leave a little soil and use it as a propagation box!

                      How to water plants grown on the Cacti & Succulent mix

                      Let the soil dry out completely (lift the pot to feel the weight, it should be a lot lighter than after watering) before watering again.

                      Cactus & succelent mix

                      Ik had al een review geschreven maar ik vond de belangrijkste foto niet meer terug maar na enig zoekwerk toch gevonden. Ik vind deze wel interessant genoeg om te delen. Foto 1 is hoe ik de plantjes een maand geleden heb aangekocht en foto 2 is hoe ze er nu uitzien nadat ik ze verpot heb in cactus & succelent mix potgrond. Het erwtenplantje variegata ziet er vele gezonder en levendiger uit. Dit maakt mij zo blij.

                      Top kwaliteit !

                      De potgrond voor cactus & vetplanten is luchtig en waterdoorlatend zodat de kans op wortelrot sterk wordt verminderd. Ik ben zeer tevreden over deze potgrond en kan ook al nieuwe groei zien. Mijn planten voelen zich goed en ik ben gelukkig. Ik ben fan :)

                      Cactus is blij

                      Met verpotten uit de kweekpot naar mooie nieuwe huis wel wat puntjes kwijtgeraakt maar ik blijf lekker stevig. Ik hoop dat mijn babies het ook goed gaan doen.
