The Luxury Collection - - Breathing life into your Home -

The medium, or soil, is the next im­por­tant fac­tor. Like I men­tioned ear­lier, the roots are the source of life for the plants, hence, the medium in which the roots are should be a nat­u­ral haven. In na­ture, the earth­worm does the job of aer­at­ing the soil and pro­vid­ing that per­fect en­vi­ron­ment for the roots to breathe. Sim­i­larly, the medium used should be light and airy whilst pro­vid­ing all the nec­es­sary nu­tri­ents for the plant. A mix of com­post, coco peat and red earth should do the job well. Medi­ums such as coco peat re­tain mois­ture mak­ing the amount of water drained out much lesser.
