1. Before planting the plant, it is recommended to pour a layer of gravel (2-3cm/1inch) for ideal moisture balance. You can also use perlite or specific mixtures of these materials.
2. Pour the first layer of soil, which it shouldn’t be much since you need to leave enough space for the root ball. Instead of soil, different types of peat mixtures can be used, suitable for your plant.
3. Place the plant directly into the flowerpot and fill the remaining space with soil. Slightly compress. Add a little bit more soil, because it will settle within 2-3 weeks by 5-10%.
