How to use the Orchid 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 Orchid soil. Add a small layer of Orchid mix at the bottom of the pot.

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

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

Why the Orchid mix works. 

This blend contains everything your orchid could be for. Orchids are a little different to most houseplants. As most orchids are epiphytes (plants that don't grow in soil) they prefer a substrate with lots of aeration and space. 

To support this there is lots of orchid bark. The sphagnum moss helps retain humidity around the plant roots. Orchids will also do well in terrariums! The perfect general orchid mix. 

    The original habitat of the Orchid plants

    Most orchids are found in tropical forests in Central America and South America. They have thick larger roots that need airflow and humidity to thrive. 

    How to care for Orchid plants

    While there are many types of orchids, we will outline a general care guide. Most orchids prefer bright, indirect sunlight. Avoid direct sunlight as it will scorch the leaves and flowers. Contrary to popular belief, orchids are pretty easy to care for. 

    Do note that if you decide to change up your mix, the more sphagnum there is, the less water it needs. Vice versa, the more bark, the more water it needs. Sphagnum holds onto the water for a longer period of time.

          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

                      Not sure if the Orchid mix is right for your plant?

                      Check out the SYBASoil Guide

                      How much Orchid mix do I need?

                      Check out this pot volume calculator tool to calculate how much Orchid 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 Orchid mix

                      Water the soil only when the top 2-3cm of the soil is dried out. You can test this out by poking your finger in the soil to feel around.

                      It is fine to let it dry out a bit more sometimes if you forget it as the deeper soil will retain moisture for longer. This will also help the roots to grow deeper.

                      Habe zwar meine Orchideen erst jetzt umgetopf und kann noch nichts zu ihrer Entwicklung sagen. Allerdings macht mir das Substrat einen besseren Eindruck als Orchideensubstrat aus dem Gartemarkt....es ist sogar Moos drin....toll!

                      J'avoue : je n'ai pas (pas encore... ?) d'orchidée. J'utilise ce substrat mélangé à d'autres pour les monsteras, raphidophora tétrasperma panachés, syngo, etc. toutes plantes sensées pousser au pied des arbres sur lesquels elles prennent appui.

                      Ik kocht Orchid Premium mix 5l aarde. En dit is mijn beste ervaring met het kopen van grond voor bloemen! Het komt volledig overeen met de beschrijving op de site en voldoet aan de behoeften van mijn bloemen. Dit is wat ik wil zeggen: Deze grond is gemaakt met liefde en zorg voor planten! Mijn planten zijn meteen geplant en zien er nu gezond uit en bloeien zelfs! Ik ben van plan om ook grond voor andere planten te kopen. Ik raad dit iedereen aan die van bloemen houdt. Dank aan je team🙏

                      Quietly optimistic

                      I bought the Orchid mix for an Odontoglossum which I had adopted and which was in very poor shape after having lost most leaves. After repotting and now two weeks further it seems to be settling down and starting to grow nicely with a new shoot developing. Subsequently also used for a mini Phalaenopsis which adjusted nicely to the new medium.
                      I'll be back... 🙂
