Good potting soil should be nutrient-rich, organic content in the soil should be high, we use peat moss to prepare good high nutrient content pit mixture.
Pit moss is one of the significant parts of pot mixing, it is the most used in pot mixing reason behind it is very good for the growth and development of the plant pit moss makes the soil well-drained it is very lightweight and easy to compress.
Soil should be loose and light Because in compact soil proper process of aeration doesn’t take place and if the oxygen will not reach the plant’s root zone, it will slow down the growth and development of the plant.
