1. Before planting the plant directly into the soil, it is recommended to pour a layer of gravel (2-3cm/1inch) into the inner pot for ideal moisture balance. You can also use perlite or specific mixtures of these materials.
2. Pour the first layer of soil, which shouldn’t be much since you need to leave enough space for the root ball. Instead of soil, diverse types of peat mixtures, suitable for your plants, can be used.
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%.
4. Water your plant directly into the soil. Make sure that the water level does not exceed the level of gravel.
