What is the Best Soil for Curry Leaf Plants?

Curry leaf plants (Murraya koenigii) prefer well-draining soils that are rich in organic matter.

The best soil for curry leaf plants is

1. Espoma Cactus Soil 

2. Espoma Organic Potting Soil for Herbs 

Both which can ordered from Amazon! You will want curry leaf plants soil which is fertile, well-draining soil that is slightly acidic, with a pH range between 5.5 to 6.5. A good soil mix for curry leaf plants can be made by combining equal parts of potting soil, perlite, and vermiculite.

This soil mix provides good drainage while retaining enough moisture to keep the plant healthy. It's important to note that curry leaf plants are sensitive to overwatering, so it's essential to ensure that the soil has proper drainage. Additionally, adding a layer of mulch over the soil can help to retain moisture while preventing the growth of weeds.

I would recommend not using low quality soil as the plant will take forever to grow, the plant naturally does not grow fast when young so you want to ensure proper conditions. 

Tip: Do not over water the plant, since its naturally found in India.. a dry climate, they tend to like to be more dry than wet!
