Customer Questions & Answers

Will this product cause root rot? If it leaves the soil moist then root rot would accumulate?

Asked by: hailthequeen
Yes. It did cause root rot for me! Not happy at all. Lost most of my potted annuals!

How can it be 64 Qt, yet .66 Cubic Feet?

If this truly is a 64 qt bag as stated, that should convert to 1.4 cubic feet of material. The .66 cubic feet as shown in the details would equate to a 17 quart capacity. Very irritating that manufacturers and retailers use different standards to confuse the buyer.
Asked by: Bobcat
No need to apologize Home Depot. Here are the facts. First we must distinguish between dry and wet quarts. A cubic foot is 29.9221 wet quarts or 25.71 in dry quarts. 2 cubic feet = 51.43 dry quarts. 51 43/100 quarts dry US (qt dry / volume and capacity) The average volume for a 2 cu. ft. bag should be between 50 and 53 dry quarts, more or less considering moisture content. For example bags that are kept outside will often acquire more moisture than bags kept in a controlled environment. Outside moisture not only adds weight to bags, but it condenses fresh soil mix as well. Expect your dry quart capacity to vary a few quarts. 36 "DRY" quarts not 17. 1.4 cubic feet (cu ft - ft3 in volume and capacity) Equals : 36.00 quarts dry US (qt dry / volume and capacity)

I am near Chicago and we are no strangers to rain, this week several days of it. The pots will be definitly over watered, right:?

Asked by: Suzie
Suzie, the Miracle-Gro Moisture Control Potting Mix absorbs excess water, keeping it away from the roots, and releases the water as the soil begins to dry. Unless torrential rains occur and wash the product away, it should be fine. If you are especially concerned, you may wish to move the plants inside.

Customer Reviews

64 qt. Moisture Control Potting Mix is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 226.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from It survived my novice ways For the first time ever, I decided I would buy a plant and pot it. Being young and reckless, I figured moisture control would be something I need because I have no idea what I am doing. WOW, this stuff really helps you control the moisture level in your plant. I WAY over-watered my plant (recall that I am young and reckless) and this stuff sucked it up like nothing and kept my fledgling plant from dying.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from fantastic product for potted plants in drought areas my brother, a landscape architect, turned me onto Miracle Grow soils ages ago. I have since moved from the northeast to southeast and have had to change my way of gardening. This moisture control is perfect my all my plants propagating in pots to fill my still spotty areas. Thanks for a great product

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Best Soil I absolutely love this soil for my containers! I will not use any other soil for all of my containers & I have A LOT of them! My plants grow great with it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This Potting Mix is by far the best around! I am a total newbie to gardening of any sorts. I purchased a bag of Miracle Grow Moisture Control Potting Mix to try out because of its great ability to retain moisture; and its ingredients make it so it is almost impossible to overwater. I am having awesome results with my patio tomato plants, that i have in 5 gallon buckets; and am also having great results growing some herbs with this mix. This stuff slowly feeds your plants and vegetables so you do not need to purchase more products to fertilize or feed your plants. I would highly recommend this product to anyone, no matter if you are a Master Gardner or a Newbie like myself. A+

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality productypcal of the Scotts Company I have used this product the last three years for my geranium plants I keep through the winter. I repot them all in new moisture control soil and results are much better than other products I have tried. The results are nice full plants and with the miracle-gro bloom buster we get a lot of bright blooms. My wife and I do about 50-75 plants every year and this improved our survival rate at near 100%.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Do Not Use for Indoor Plants I have well over 40 house plants and about 20 in my office. I had bought two bags of this product - one for my home and one for my office. I couldn't understand why this winter, I had a problem with gnats in my house that I had never had before. I was told they were from the soil. After finally ridding them for the most part in my house, I started to notice them in my office. Today when I opened the bag in my office, it was filled with these nasty gnats. I would not recommend using this product.
