I am not sure what what type of potting mix I am going to use for my money plant, they are in the water now, roots are coming out, I want to planted in the pots,
Welcome to the Bunnings Workshop community. Thank you for joining us and sharing your question about what potting mix to use for a money plant.
To transfer your money plant from water to soil, you will need a Vaseria 23cm Terracotta Italian Pot, a bag of Scotts Osmocote 50L Premium Potting Mix, and Pinegro 30L Coco Peat Ready To Use. Here are the steps you need to take to transfer your money plant to soil.
Your watering schedule will be to water it every other day and to check that you have good drainage. Make sure the pot is not waterlogged. Observe your plant for the next few weeks. Please keep us updated, any photos you can provide about your planting project would be much appreciated.
If you need more advice and information, please let us know.
It would be preferable, in my opinion, to use a specially formulated indoor plant potting mix which already has a high coir fibre content, such as Osmocote Indoor Plants Premium Potting MIx.
This mix has been designed to suit most indoor plants and is less prone to fungus gnats which can be problematic indoors in other potting mixes that are based on composted ingredients.
This indoor mix may hold more moisture than a standard potting mix so check how moist the top 5cm or so is being watering - be guided by how the mix feels rather than having a set watering program (eg watering every second day routinely).
PS: Your photo looks more like a pothos or devil's ivy than a money plant which has rounder, coin-like, mid green leaves.
Thanks Noelle for ur concern
I am bit confused now, can u please tell me proper step to transfer my money plant to soil
u are right
It is also called devil's vine or devil's ivy It is sometimes mistakenly labeled as a Philodendron in plant stores. It is commonly known as a money plant in many parts of the Indian subcontinent.
Thanks for your cooperation 😊
@EricL's steps are how should you transfer your money plant to soil. Our expert horticulturist @Noelle has simply advised you to use Osmocote Indoor Plants Premium Potting Mix instead of the Scotts Osmocote 50L Premium Potting Mix. I'd agree with her suggestion as fungus gnats are horrible and can be a real pain to get rid of. The indoor plant mix she suggested is designed to inhibit their eggs laying ability.
It should now read:
I hope that clarifies. Please let me know if you have any questions.
thanks for your advice
One more suggestion, do I need to still add Coco Peat until the pot is nearly full or one fourth proportion of the pots,
thanks for your cooperation and help
