Can you use soil from one plant for another?

It’s generally fine to reuse potting soil if whatever you were growing in it was healthy. If you did notice pests or diseases on your plants, it’s best to sterilize the mix to avoid infecting next year’s plants.

Also, can you use succulent soil for pothos?

Pothos will grow in many kinds of mix. You’d be fine w/ Cactus & Succulent mix (yes, even if it’s MG & has some peat) w/ Perlite, mixed 50/50 or equal portions of each.

Likewise, people ask, what do I do with used potting soil? The easiest way to reuse old potting mix? Simply remove old plants from their containers, fluff up the soil and replant. If you’ve reused the same soil for several years or it’s developed a white surface crust, you may have to cut it with 50 percent new potting soil and/or apply fertilizer.

Furthermore, can I reuse soil with roots?

Yes you can reuse soil with roots in it. However, try and remove as many as possible. Especially the larger roots left behind. Leaving some smaller ones shouldn’t hurt anything.

What kind of soil do succulents like?

Succulents need soil that drains, so regular potting soil—or dirt from your yard—won’t do. Choose cactus soil or mix potting soil with sand, pumice, or perlite. Succulent roots are very fragile so be gentle when repotting.

What type of soil do jade plants like?

Jade Plant Ideal Soil Composition & pH

Like most succulent plants, jade plants prefer a loose, rocky soil that is well-draining. Adequate drainage is vital, as too much moisture can cause wet feet and rot out your entire plant. Avoid using traditional all-purpose potting soils when planting jade.
