Introducing Sunshine® Black Bear™ Indoor & Outdoor Potting Mix

Discover the beauty of carbon-rich biochar.

If climate-conscious growing is your passion, Sunshine® Black Bear™ Indoor & Outdoor Potting Mix is your new gardening solution. This soilless potting mix is formulated with Black Bear™ biochar, which helps prevent CO2 emissions by storing carbon—so you can help protect the planet simply by being the plant enthusiast you are.

A mix that matters

Carbon-rich Black Bear™ biochar is an excellent growing media aggregate for long-term carbon sequestration. The biochar in each 1.5 cubic-foot bag of Sunshine® Black Bear™ Indoor & Outdoor Potting Mix stores 2 pounds of carbon that would have been released into the atmosphere as 7.2 pounds of CO2 greenhouse gas—the equivalent CO2 volume of 130 standard size balloons. This isn’t just a growing mix; it’s a sustainable revolution.

 

A green thumbs-up

Made from forest by-products, the biochar in Sunshine® Black Bear™ Indoor & Outdoor Potting Mix is a sustainable alternative to perlite that promotes aeration and drainage. We blend this biochar with Canadian Sphagnum peat moss that’s certified under the Veriflora® Responsibly Managed Peatlands program, which signifies harvesting practices that prioritize ecosystem conservation. The result is a groundbreaking, versatile gardening solution that’s backed by successful outcomes with professional growers.
