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?

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...

Rated 4.1 out of 5 by 225 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Horrible! Horrible product. It does retain moisture. Too much in fact. We are in the middle of a drought. I watered my potted flowers only twice in the last two weeks and the soil is soggy with water laying on top of the soil. It just wont drain thru. My once beautiful flowers are shriveling up and dying from what I can only assume is root rot. What a lot of money to spend on a plant killer. Now I have to go out and buy 4 more bags of regular potty soil to replace all that I had and replace some of the flowers that are beyond saving! Not happy! July 21, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by 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. July 27, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Stay away from this stuff, it's a plant killer. If you want to kill your plants, this stuff will do it. My wife and have been gardening for over 40 years, we are in our middle 60's. This stuff will not drain. It retains the water for an extremely long time. We have lost over $30.00 in plants this summer. We are not upset about the cost, we are upset over the dying plants... we don't kill plants. This stuff will look like it is completely dry, but when tested with a moisture meter we found that the roots are drowning in water. I guess it would be great for bog plants, but for plants where you water and expect the water to drain, it never happens. In order to save the plants we had to throw away the moisture control and re-pot with regular Miriacle Gro soil, which does an excellent job. I never in my life thought I would have anything bad to say about a Miracle Gro product, we could always count on Miracle Gro for a great product, however this stuff is a nightmare. July 11, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by A picture is worth a thousand words! Love Miracle Grow Moisture Control for my container garden. As you can see from my zucchini it produces healthy plants. June 29, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Very poor potting soil I have been a horticulturist for 40 years and after using several bags this I feel that my plants are the worst I have every grown. They look bad and as far as moisture control I have to water every single day. The product it self looks like ground up bark from a stump grinding machine. I should have known after first bag that it was inferior. Especially for the price. Also have 3 miracle-gro feeders that do not work. June 19, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Horrible Potting Soil Worst Potting Soil I ever bought. Been growing houseplants for years and I am pro at it. bought this Soil to replant some plants, a week later, I have MOLD growing on the top soil of my plants, I removed it etc. Weeks went by, and I noticed my plants are not really growing anymore, could not figure out why ? Took one plant out of its pot and I noticed the soil is completely wet. Can only be a matter of time before the roots begin to die :( June 13, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Killed over $20 in plants I purchased this and planted tomatoes, etc. Many of my plants are withering up and dying. They are drying up which is definitely not due to lack of water. It is ridiculous to spend extra money for a product that is advertised to eliminate this problem only to have the plants die. Will not buy it in future. June 12, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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%.
