the right soil for indoors? peat moss and perlite

8 years ago

I'm really new to growing plants, started growing African Violets back in march and now also have:

Jasmine (maid of orleans)
Banana Shrub
Sensitive Plant
Purple Velvet Plant
Chinese Perfume Plant

For the african violets, I have been using a mixture of sphagnum peat moss and perlite, about 50:50. They have done extremely well with this. I also have used this for the Jasmine. Seems fine there too.

I'm wondering if I can use this for all my plants. My other plants are newer so they have been growing with the soil they came in. They need to be repotted, so I'm wondering if it's okay to also use the peat moss perlite mix for them as well.

Thank you for your help!
