Monòver Posted January 25, 2016 Report Share Posted January 25, 2016 (edited) I was reading in the forum different recipes for our palm soil mix. The palmtalkers are using peat moss, perlite, Seramis, veemiculite, pine bark, etc. With different proportions and mixes. Tell us your recipe and its advantages. I am using this soil mix: 50% pine bark, 25% gross peat moss and 25% baked clay. This is my common mix. It has good drainage and air circulation. My palms grows fast and i can water a lot in summer and feed. And in Winter it is not too moist. For loving water palms, for example Archontophoenix, my mix is 50% peat moss, 25% pine park, 25% baked clay. For other palms with root rot problems or dry soil lovers, like Dypsis decipiens, Ravenea glauca, Laccospadix, Chamaerops, my mix is 50% pine bark, 50% baked clay. Every materials are cheap, very important if you have hundreds of plants in a pots. This is the materials And this is the result: My Carpoxilon macrospermum. The first picture when arrived to my house last year 14 April, 2015 and the other picture two days ago.
