I know you said you’re looking for a β€œrecipe” but this is the aroid mix I got for my tropical plants.
@CaptainJaneway I am open to anything that my plants will love! Thank you, I saved it to my Amazon wishlist. :)
She is a show stopper! Mine is way smaller than that! Keep me in the loop lol
@PlantJedi I'm not even exceptionally good at taking care of PPPs, but I am trying to learn because I just love her! I have two medium PPPs(doing not so hot) and one small (doing pretty well under a grow light), and now this monster... So I'm trying to figure out a perfect aroid mix to put her in when I repot. 🧐
@JesssJungle SHE’S MASSIVE! I bought a couple on clearance and they’re not looking too happy πŸ₯΄

For an aroid mix: I typically use succulent soil, perlite, pine bark (cheaper than orchid bark) and I have recently been adding coco chips into it.
@S.ham13 thank you!! 😊 I just ordered Coco chips, vermiculite, and orchid bark. I have LECA, and perlite and compost I can also mix in! I will have to look into pine bark!
Perfect!!! I add vermiculite every so often but have not recently 😬
Um pardon my ignorance, but what is an β€˜aroid’ mix? And which plants like it? I have a white wizard and dragon tail philos and a starter pink princess marble galaxy. Should I be using something special? I have them in indoor potting mix that’s mixed with orchid bark, vermiculite worm castings… and I feel like I’m forgetting an ingredient. But how does an aroid mix differ?
@VerdantFlora mix 1 part peat moss, 1 part orchid bark (or an orchid bark mix which usually contains peat and horticultural charcoal) and 1 part perlite … Check out this website: https://www.drgreenthumbs.com.au/blogs/living-soils/creating-the-perfect-aroid-potting-soil-a-comprehensive-guide-for-healthy-and-thriving-plants#:~:text=The%20ideal%20soil%20mix%20for,needs%20of%20your%20Aroid%20plant. it might be of interest Happy Growing!
I am dying with envy!

I bought the scrungiest PPP you’ve ever seen because it was the only one and have been working really hard to get her into shape. I mean she’s healthy but has minimal variegation and lots of torn leaves. I actually think she got on the wrong truck or something because I have never seen another PPP in my area at all. I’m lucky to have my little diamond in the rough.
@HeraMonstera
This is the THIRD TIME that Walmart has gotten me with their PPPs. I don't know where they get them but dayum. 🀩
I bet your little gal will grow into a beautiful big plant some day. ❀️
@VerdantFlora philodendrons are aroids so they like chunky, airy, well draining soil. @Ms.Persnickety yep that's the most common mix I have seen listed! I am basically gonna go off that and maybe add lecca.
She’s beautiful!!! πŸ’–πŸ’–
Holy cow that’s a stunner 🀯
So cheap on average a cheap one is like 40-60 bucks and a average price is like 80-200 dollars and they can cost up to like 500-1200 dollars
_20 % Coco coir _ 35 % compost_ 15% perlite_ 10 % leca _ 20 % regular poting mix
I can get over this plant😍😍😍
