1 cu. ft. Exotic Blend Cactus and Succulent Potting Mix is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 6.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for so much more than cactus! Growing plants in a container is a delicate balance between keeping the soil moist, not always the easiest task in a pot that heats up faster and doesn't allow roots to expand far out like they would in the ground, and not over watering, when water sits in the bottom of the pot and makes your soil a soggy, muddy, mucky mess that can go rancid, rot your roots, and worse. This mix is a great solution for container plants of all kinds, with better drainage than most but still has nutrition and support. You'll have to water more frequently -- that's the downside of growing in pots --but your plants' roots will love the oxygen, I promise. I use this mix with pretty much everything I pot, with some add-ins depending on special needs. Fruit trees, succulents (of course), drought -tolerant plants (they are more susceptible to root rot) like rosemary, lavender, and so on. I take off one star only because it's one of their most expensive soils, and I actually added in even more perlite for some of my succulents, so the drainage isn't perfect. All in all, this is my choice!

It's quite friable, and by screening small amounts of it, I could have finely grained soil for the tiny seeds. It's well worth the price to know the quality is high and nutritious for my little seedlings. I'm going back for more to mix with the bags of Vermont Organics I bought. I bought my first bags about two months ago to get a jump on the growing season using the greenhouse. I started tomatoes, peppers, arugula, chicory, onions, beets, moringa trees and several other items, and had great success with the germination (even using some old seeds). I had never paid so much for potting soil before, but after reading the awful stuff in regular cheap potting soil, I thought I would risk it with this OMRI approved soil. I'm very glad I did. It's a little twiggy, but not enough to be bothersome. That will break down by the end of the season I'm sure. The twiggyness is why I screened small amounts for the very small seeds. The result was black gold! (I used an old kitchen sieve) I have not seen any weeds growing in the pots in which I used this soil.

Finally decided to get on the internet to find a good company who makes this potting mix. I have used Dr. Earth products before, especially the organic products and liked them. So I had it shipped to Home Depot's local store for free and picked it up at the store. It is a little pricey but I only needed a small amount.

I had Hens and Chicks as well as Cactus & other Succulents that looked very much like they were dying !! After replanting all of them in this Potting Mix , All my Succulents are thriving.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Succulents are Thriving I got this mix for 4 indoor projects I wanted to pot up. They have been living in my house for about 6 months and are doing great. I really like the living plants in my house but typically kill them off quickly. This product must have helped.
