The earth your plants grow in is an ecosystem, filled with trillions of microscopic organisms that interact with your botanic friend. The easiest way to keep a plant happy is to replicate the ecosystem they evolved in. In Situ substrates help to replicate the habitat your plant came from. Use as a top dressing for potted plants, soil amendment, or even landscaping! Our substrates are unique because of their varying particle sizes, densities, and aggregate types that are not seen in other store bought soils or substrates.
This desert substrate is made to replicate the driest desert on earth, the Atacama. Located on the Pacific coast of Chile, this area is known for ancient volcanic activity and highly worn granite and silica, all of which has been smashed by wind, ocean, and La Camanchaca (a coastal fog).
This desert substrate is made to replicate the surprisingly bountiful Chihuahua desert of Central Mexico. Formey the ocean floor and surrounded by mountain ranges, this desert has a high level of endemism. The species here love its calcium carbonate rich soils.
