Anyone whoís used Osmocote Potting Mix knows just how good they are Ė the
results are in gorgeous, healthy plants. But itís easy to get confused when you

Osmocote Premium Potting Mix specially formulated to give both indoor and
outdoor plants the best performance. That formula is unique to Osmocote and
enriched with a full charge of Osmocote controlled release plant food.
Thatís important because it means that the plants are fed, constantly and evenly
over 4 months. Without ďcontrolled releaseĒ plant food, putting a plant in a
mixture this rich would be like eating your whole monthís groceries in one meal.
Osmocote Premium has several key ingredients which makes it the best.
Scotts Coir Pith coconut fibres. Hydraflow Two ensures even distribution of
water in the mix. Scotts Coir Pith retains 33% more moisture than ordinary
potting mixes releasing it as needed by the plant.
Stimulex improves the plantís resistance to root and leaf diseases. This is a
problem Osmocote can help stop before it starts. These 3 special ingredients are
also included in Osmocote Multi-Purpose Potting Mix.
As the name makes clear, itís suitable for all sorts of potting and the
controlled release plant food ensures healthy growth for a whole season. When it
comes time to transplant your potted plant to the garden, Osmocote will enrich
the soil out there too.
