Crop Media Tips

Crop media is a mixed soil that can be purchased at a flower nursery or can be made on its own. You can create your own mixed soil depending on the type of crop you want to grow.

Most crops require standard mixed soil. Plants that require less water such as cactus are suitable for use in mixtures containing more sand. While plants requiring high humidity such as ferns or plants grown in hanging pots are suitable for use in mixtures containing more compost.

The main ingredients for making mixed soil are topsoil, organic matter and river sand.
