Rated 1 out of 5 by from Horrible product I re-potted my peace Lilly that I have had for 15 years in this potting mix and it started to kill my plant. The soil retains way too much moisture. I re-potted it again in a different potting mix and it is doing well. I thought it was just that plant that didn't like the soil and since I had some left over, I planted a newer plant in it. Same thing. It started dying. I re potted it in another potting mix and it is doing great. This is a bad product. I don't recommend it and will never buy it again.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Big rock included When we bought this soil we thought we were getting a nice big heavy bag of potting soil, but mostly what we got was a big rock.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Quality Decline Folks don't even touch this soil if there isn't a bag of perlite nearby. This soil will KILL YOUR PLANTS! I don't know what's going on over at Miracle Gro, but they should know better. Their soil used to be top notch and reliable, now I find that most of their potting soils are too dense for house plants. If you don't cut their soil with something lite you will end up with water log, gnats, or plats dying from lack of root oxygen. And I won't even go into all of the debris in the soil, which doesn't work well for indoor houseplants. Beware folks, beware. Edit: I recently repoted most of my plants (6 bags of soil) and I think I might have to remove the soil because I've been issues with the soil.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Killing my plants and has a horrid stench Just added this soil to my plants and now they are all shriveling up and dying and now my house smells like paint thinner. Will never buy this product again.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from The jury is still out.... I transplanted 2 of my houseplants. After 3 weeks, ivy seems to have slight growth. Of course, location and soil mean everything. While, you need to be mindful not to over water, especially with this "soil". I consider myself a seasoned gardener, and I know when to water my plants, I wasn't expecting MUSHROOMS growing from my large Schefflera. And I slight scent of mold, as well. There is new growth on this plant, and after getting rid of those mushrooms twice, I haven't experienced that again. We'll see how well my plants do, the jury's still out...

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Far from ideal This Miracle-Gro Indoor Potting Mix is around 80% peat, some coconut coir, and a little perlite. I found basically no difference between this and Miracle-Gro Sphagnum Peat Moss. This mix has fertilizer included. So for the uninitiated, you can just put your seeds or plants in it, and start growing. Just add water and it will keep your plants alive. The mix is fine enough to start small seeds, and I used it successfully for that. I can't attest to the mix having fungus gnats or not, because I sterilized the mix before using it. I don't trust any mix that comes moist in a bag with little holes in it. The mix definitely attracts fungus gnats, and becomes infested if any gnats find their way to the moistened mix (before or after planting). The mix's water and air holding properties are far from ideal. The bag claims you can just water and let the excess water run out the bottom of the pot. It's not true. This mix soaks up water like a sponge, becoming almost fully saturated. The excess water does not drain out, and that's bad for your plants. Plant roots need oxygen, which they normally get from air in the soil. The fully saturated mix takes many days to dry to the proper moisture level, depending on the climate and on how thirsty your plants are. So practically speaking, you should never let this mix become fully saturated with water. You should only give it a measured amount of water, and it takes some trial and error to figure out how much water that is. Or you can add perlite to give this mix some air holding capacity, as much as 33-66% perlite. The amount of perlite already included in this mix is very small and accomplishes basically nothing. I found that the included fertilizer kept my plants going alright in the first couple of months, with growth slowing somewhat in the third month. Built-in fertilizer seems like a time saver, but what do you do when that fertilizer gets used up? Add more fertilizer of some kind, or re-pot in new mix? And how do you know when to do that? The manufacturer suggests using Miracle-Gro Plant Food, but that's not formulated for soilless growing. Since you're already growing in soilless media, just go all the way: go hydroponic. I switched from this potting mix to to a mix of coir and perlite, with all of the nutrients supplied hydroponically in the water. (The ScottsMiracle-Gro company has a subsidiary that makes good hydroponic nutrients) Growth was tremendously faster using the hydroponic method, and it's not really that much extra work. Mix the nutrient solution in advance in a large container. Supply it continuously to the bottom of the pot in a tray filled with the solution. Dump the tray and replace with fresh nutrient solution once per week. Top up with plain water between feedings. Apply the nutrient solution or water to the TOP of the medium, to dilute and flush the nutrient salts that accumulate at the top of the medium where it dries out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from very good product occasionally I decide to put in a few new house plants to change the the appearance of my front room,off to the nursery and home with a couple of new plants I always put in new potting mix for the plants to make sure they get the best start as they grow,I have always used Miracle Grow indoor potting mix for my plants,they just seem to look better as they grow.This product works well for me instructions are pretty basic you can't mess this up pretty easy,along with proper watering I will have beautiful looking plants with deep colors all do to Miracle Grow potting mix,I also use the Miracle Grow outdoor potting mix and always have great results with my outdoor plants,along with a little Miracle Grow plant food I get very good results,these products may cost a little more but you get what you pay for.
