Trichocereus Substrate Mix

£3.95£35.00

Please select which option you would like between Premium and Standard. The Standard mix is perfectly great for most people, the premium version just has some added inorganic components (Azomite etc) but are pricey now so I have to charge extra for it.

Choosing the right substrate composition is quite important as it needs to be nutrient rich while still very high draining. Cacti like a wet / dry rotation sot he mix needs to be gritty to allow for drainage and for the roots to dry out quickly.

I am offering two different substrate mixes, a premium version and standard version. The main difference between premium and standard is with premium, I use kyodama, molar and akadama.

Both versions have added mycorrhizae (beneficial fungi & trichoderma) and life cycle nutrient base.

There is nothing stopping you from buying the components individually and making your own substrate mix, I am just offering some pre made mixes for ease of use and not having to spend a fortune buying everything individually.

Both mixes have 3 goals in common:

  • Gritty and free draining
  • Retains water without being “wet”
  • Rich in minerals

Premium Substrate Mix

Organic

  • True John Innes No2 (nearly all JI No2 on the market is too peat heavy)
  • Premium worm castings
  • Mycorrhizae Root Enhancer with added Trchoderma
  • Life Cycle fertiliser

Inorganic (Mineral)

  • Pumice
  • Molar
  • Horticultural Grit
  • Sharp Sand
  • Azomite
  • Lava Rock sand

Standard Substrate Mix

Organic

  • True John Innes No2 (nearly all JI No2 on the market is too peat heavy)
  • Premium worm castings
  • Mycorrhizae Root Enhancer with added Trichoderma

Inorganic (Mineral)

  • Pumice / Molar
  • Horticultural Grit
  • Sharp Sand

PLEASE NOTE: Not all ingredients are available all the time, if something is not available, I have to pivot. But, I use the best that is available on the market, simple.

    I'm baffled by the love and care from you at trichocereus uk, needed few bits was so impressed with previous orders, and Byron again to come make my day I was so surprised when I opened my order.
    He said he felt bad prior about the delivery fee based on my order and gave me a extra bonus.... With anticipation I was curious to what he'd send wether it was seeds or a seedling, no Byron thought I'd think that xD and decided to give a beautiful hybrid cut that I'm sure to cherish forever <3 local love from a local business. Screw amazon!

    I'm not one to write reviews but I'm so impressed with the service I've received it would be a crime not to.

    Originally I changed my mind on my order, and Bryon gave me a refund straight away.

    I reordered a bundle and I wasn't at all let down with the quality when delivered. It was very well. Packed, and was also a fast delivery.

    I did need some basic information at first which was replied to within minutes of asking, and also received emails with trips and information on seeds and seedlings.

    I honestly consider this some of the best customer service I've ever received, and I'd definitely be using this site in the near future (once I make some room)
