How to use the Calathea & Maranta 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 Calathea & Maranta soil. Add a small layer of Calathea & Maranta mix at the bottom of the pot.

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

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

Why the Calathea & Maranta mix works

The Calathea & Maranta mix has both perlite and vermiculite, allowing ample drainage while still retaining some moisture in the vermiculite. This helps with keeping the soil evenly moist. The root system will grow healthier and larger, and it reduces the need of having to water the plant too often, leaving you with more time to admire your plants! 

    The original habitat of the Calathea & maranta plants

    Calathea & Maranta originate from the south-American jungles, they are used to survive under the canopy of leaves from larger plants & trees. They do well in little sunlight as they are used to this environment. The jungle floor has a moist & rich substrate full of nutrients from fallen leaves & other waste. The Calathea mix mimics this environment

    Tip! As Calathea & Maranta like to stay moist, use a plastic or ceramic pot. Clay & other types of pots are porous, meaning they breathe out moisture. Plastic & ceramic contain moisture better. 

    How to care for Calathea & Maranta plants

    Calathea & maranta can be fussy, they are similar in care to alocasia plants. Bright indirect light, constantly moist soil, and warm temperatures will ensure healthy and pretty foliage. They can become too wet, so make sure your plant has ample drainage as well.

          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! 💪

                      How much Calathea & Maranta mix do I need?

                      Check out this pot volume calculator tool to calculate how much Calathea & Maranta 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 Calathea & Maranta mix

                      Water 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.

                      Do not forget to keep the soil moist! If the soil dries out completely the plant will suffer

                      Bon substrat

                      Ce substrat offre un bon compromis entre rétention de l'eau et drainage. Il est moins spongieux que le substrat de base dans lequel les marantacées sont typiquement vendues, ce qui évite la pourriture racinaire. Il sèche graduellement.

                      Bonne reprise de la croissance 2 semaines après rempotage, il semble bien nutritif et en plus il sent bon !

                      L'emballage est aussi très soigné, les paquets se rangent bien et sont propres à manipuler - ce qui n'est pas négligeable quand on habite en appartement !

                      Great for bird of paradise

                      I have used this mix twice now for my bird of paradise plant and it has grown so much. Within six months from first use it was bursting out of the pot again and thriving. Love the mix.

                      Le livreur de chronopost a jeter le colis dans ma cour alors qu il pleuvait, quand j suis arrivé chez moi retrouve le carton en bouillie et mon chien s est amuser avec un sac qu elle a étaler dans la cours. J ai téléphoné à chronopost qui m à dit de joindre sybotanica mais aucun numéro de téléphone.
                      Alors comment faire pour se faire rembourser du mauvais travail du livreur
