About Specialist Compost
With the range of different houseplants larger than ever before, the rise of more specialist varieties with more tailored requirements is on the up too. These plants grow in all different conditions worldwide, so what suits one may not suit the other.
Cacti and succulents for example require a free-draining mix that emulates their natural environment, whereas standard houseplant compost holds more water and has a higher nutrient level to encourage flowering and lush leafy growth.
Boma stocks a huge range of different specialist composts, from individual substrates such as lava rock and rice husks to readymade, mixes like Philodendron, Alocasia and Jungle Mix. There are also individual composts for certain plant groups such as Citrus plants, bonsai and carnivorous.
