Alongside universal compost which is suitable for many indoor and outdoor plants, there are also many speciality composts available. Many plants need to have a a particular type of soil if they are to flourish. After all, plants in their natural habitats also grow in specific regions and on specific soil types.
Specialty composts mimic the plant’s natural environment as much as possible, with visible results!
Standard compost contains enough nutrients to last your plant about 2 months. After this period the nutrients will generally have been used up and will need to be replenished. If you do not have a lot of time to care for your plants you will be pleased to know that there are also composts available with enough nutrients for 6 months. These composts are a bit more expensive, but you will be able to enjoy your plants for longer and will only need to give them a little water.
