Selecting Potting Soil: High quality potting soil is the key to your plant’s health. Choose a soil rich in peatmoss, pearlite and wood chips. Having these additives in your soil will aid in aeration and drainage.
Selecting Containers: When choosing a container choose one that has good drainage. Selecting a container with no holes will keep water in and lead to overwatering. Terra Cotta pots will retain water longer and help with airflow through the roots.
