Rated 1 out of 5 by from Doesn't Dry/Drain Well I've been using this soil mix for about a month now, hoping it would help my succulents grow happy and healthy. However, I have been having nothing but problems to the point where I have had to start over by propagating my succulent leaves to make new babies. When watering I use a "soak-dry" method and it has worked well before, but now it seems to be causing problems. The top of the soil dries fine, but its the soil that's below that is the problem. It doesn't dry/drain well throughout. Yes, the pot holes are big enough for the soil to drain, the sunlight is sufficient. The water sits for a long time in the soil and causes root rot and a sandy white/grey texture and appearance of the soil. I'm pretty disappointed in this soil and the outcome.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No problems here! I use this product on all my cacti, I never had a problem other then I might of over watered them a couple of times. I leave them out in the summer and bring them in the fallen. I have several different kinds of cacti and each are doing well. I have bought several bags to repot some of them and still not a problem with any bugs, gnats or mushrooms. Well maybe occasional caterpillar from outside. LOL all my cacti were purchased local and starters in 2013. I have had great results with miraclegro potting soil for cacti!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Fugues and mushrooms Bough this to repot my succulents and weeks later notice mushrooms/fugues growing in one of the my pot. Didn't really bother me at first because it was just one pot but then later on all my other pots starts to grow and have thick mushrooms coming out. That's when I really got mad.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from simple to use My wife wanted to make decorative cacti arrangements for the front yard for curb appeal and did not know what type of potting mix to use, lo and behold Miracle Gro came through again for a plant specific product. So far things are looking great. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Hydrophobic mix I bought this a month ago and it killed all my plants. I needed to report my growing plants that I have had for about 6 years. They have survived multiple moves, but did not survive this potting soil. I have used this produce before and it was great, this time was a disaster. I had multiple cacti, and a ton of succulents. I bought 3 bags of the soil to cover my planting job. It seemed fine the first week, the second week I noticed my Rainbow Elephant Bush looked shriveled. That’s when I realized that the mix I had gotten was hydrophobic. The top layer of soil was wet and draining well, but the bottom layer was bone dry. I was planning to report them over the weekend and Friday evening I started noticing the gnats. By Saturday morning my bathroom where a few of my plants live was infested. I took everything outside and repotted a ton of my stuff but unfortunately 10 of my plants didn’t make it. Super disappointing when you have owned plants for a long time and they die. I shouldn’t have trusted Miracle Gro. Plus now my house is infested with gnats and I have no idea how to get rid of them.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Work for indoors and outside plants Use this product with a potted fruit plant on my patio and for a cactus plant inside the house. This product works with both houseplants and outside plants. Both plants have grown really good. I saw surprised at the results. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Higher USDA Zone Number I am far from a plant expert, however in reading reviews it seems that maybe this soil is not being used for the right type of plant. I only use this for my Snake Plants as they require low moisture and must dry out in between watering. This soil keeps FROM HOLDING the water in. So if you are watering (Depending on pot size) more than say twice a month, or not letting your plant dry out completely you will end up with Knats, bugs, etc. USDA Zone for mine is 9a-10b so this works excellently!! Soils are all different depending on plant zone, so make sure you are using this specific mix for dryer plants.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Gnats gnats and more gnats There are gnats everywhere! It’s got to be this soil or the moisture control potting soil! I just bought a brand new new construction home and there wasn’t a bug in site here or at my old place and then I went and bought my flowers and planted them in those two formulas some in this some in others and the gnats are OVERTAKING MY HOUSE! Not a happy camper or customer; I really wish I’d see these reviews before I did this I don’t know what to do now!
