Answer: 
Potting mixes support plant development by providing a light-weight, nutrient-rich environment for root growth. Miracle-Gro potting mixes are formulated to absorb and release water as your container plant needs it.

Answer: 
I doubt it very much it would cause root rot.
If YOU kept watering enough to keep the soil heavily wet all the time, then, YES you could get root rot... BUT You would be causing it, not this soil.
This soil has little beads mixed in it that will absorb moisture... as the soil gets dry, this moisture will be sucked from the beads adding moisture to the soil... NOT a drenching drowning of water that Read More

Your pot, etc. should be allowed for GOOD DRAINAGE so that water cannot build up; this would cause root rot as it would with any kind of soil. Read Less

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

This question is from 64 qt. Moisture Control Potting Mix

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.

Answer: 
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.

Answer: 
I would think you had good drainage..(holes in bottoms of pots, etc.). If so, I don't think you have anything to worry about...
The moisture collecting nodules, in the soil mix, will have been completely moistened...
So, when & if you have a dry spell between showers, this will stay moist longer and NOT quickly dry out.
This is just my opinion...

64 qt. Moisture Control Potting Mix is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 225.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from MiracleGro Moisture Control is NOT a good choice for your Bloomers I don't like the performance. Plants potted in this soil haven't performed (and some died). The regular MiracleGro or Organic MiracleGro are your best bets. I don't recommend Moisture Control AT ALL.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from WAY TO MANY GNAT EGGS!!!!!!!! I just bought a bag of your miracle grow potting mix to reppot my very young vegetable plants in. After buying i looked up the reviews and I read all these horrid review on your product about the gnats and your statement of that a few eggs are laid through the air holes during transfer and storage. So I decided to do a test. I took 6 samples from this bag I just opened (top bottom 4 sides and middle) and I brought out my old microscope to see what I could find and what I saw scared me. There are so many gnat eggs in here. There's actual clumps of them, i couldnt keep track when counting those in clumps. But i counted single ones i saw and I can get over 25 of them in the small view of my microscope, in a small very scattered and spread sample and that's what I counted before loosing track. All 6 samples were the same result. Meaning that the eggs are like this throughout the whole bag. There's just way to many plain eggs to have been laid there through the holes. More like they were in there since possessing. I would highly recommend your people look into this and find a way to fix it. I'm very unhappy with this. But I shall continue with the planting and I hope that this mix makes my plants 2 times as big like you say. I will use sand as you suggest but I surely hope you fix this or I'm never buying another thing from you and I'll make sure I spread that cause that many eggs in a bag is ridiculous and no one deserves to have gnats all over their house and killing their plants

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 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 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.
