The children in my classroom picked out a miniature jade and a zebra cactus on our field trip last week and we need to put them in actual pots for our classroom. Is this a good soil for these plants since they are a cacti and a succulent?

Answer: 
This product will work quite well for the jade and zebra cactus plants. After potting, the only danger will be from overwatering or overfertilizing.

Miracle Gro Cactus Palm and Citrus Soil, This product is safe for potting ornamental plants. As long as you are using the soil in containers its great for starting your Plumeria stalks. Eventually the plants will get big enough to move into the ground. When doing this be sure to give the root some leeway to be able to move a bit and adjust to the new soil.

Yes! I mixed this 50/50 with regular miracle grow potting soil for mine (back in HI) and plan to do the same (in CA). The sticks grew ENORMOUS in this. Full sized trees in less than a year!

Rated 3.9 out of 5 by 30 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Best Cactus and Succulent Soil Ever Used. We have used this product exclusively for 2 years and have consistently had awesome results in growing cactus and succulents in outdoor and indoor plants. NEVER seen an insect in it or had a problem with it and will continue to use it. June 9, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by If works Used it to plant sedum in a concrete planter. The sedum took off beautifly and hasnt stopped. Great product! April 30, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Gnats! I feel like along with the soil, I purchased a gnat breeding ground. 3 months in and my carnivorous plant can't keep up with how much this stuff let's out. I'm sad I may have to replant my succulents in regular soil as this is the only cactus soil anyone local sells. June 4, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Holy fungus flies Replanted two massive aloe plants using this soil. My mistake. I have never had a problem with flies in the ten years i have had these plant and within a week a storm of flies. Was looking for a soil with better drainage and was not expecting this July 1, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by WORST PURCHASE EVER I recently purchased succulents as gifts for my grandmother and mother. I put together arrangements for them both, and for both containers of plants I used Miracle Grow Cactus Palm and Citrus soil. Big mistake. The soil has become a breeding ground for both mushrooms and fungus gnats.We haven't even watered the poor plants in attempt to kill them all off. I looked in the left over half full bag, which has been sitting in my room by the way, and there are millions of tiny mushrooms sprouting up as well as a cloud of gnats. I am disgusted and so disappointed that Miracle Grow would ruin such an important gift. I will never purchase from them again. January 16, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great for potted citrus and cact. This is nice and coarse with great drainage. My citrus are thriving. Just found this recently; my potted grapefruit is covered with blossoms. April 12, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Full of spiders I had two lemon trees I had started from seed a year ago. They were doing so well except the soil had fungus gnats from the Miracle Gro I had used. I tried everything to get rid of the gnats. I finally decided to just start over. I very carefully removed the trees. Washed the roots. Got a new pot and new soil. Huge mistake. I left town for a few days and when I came back I was inspecting the soil and saw something move! I took a plastic fork and ruffed up the soil to find dozens of thumbnail sized spiders in the soil!! That was it!! I am SO done with Miracle Gro! December 31, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Fungus Gnats and Miracle Grow I have never been a “gardener” but love flowers and plants. So, now that I’m retired, this spring I took up “gardening” in a BIG way. While walking through Home Depot I noticed a display of small, but interesting, plants. I soon learned the plants were succulents. Now I could garden both outside and inside. I bought several plants that day, and many more since, and a bag of Miracle-Gro Cactus, Palm & Citrus Soil. Within weeks of starting my inside succulent garden, my daughter and I began to notice tiny, black insects flying around in the great room and the sunroom. I have since learned they are “fungus gnats.” I used several sprays but they didn’t work. Then I put sticky “insect/fly catchers” in the living room, dining room, and sun room, where most of my succulents live. They worked but not well enough. Unfortunately, I haven’t “learned to live” with the insects. I’ve been considering throwing away all of my succulents. But, I’ve invested a lot of money in plants, soil, and containers. So, I decided to use a different soil than I originally used for my succulents. I searched the Home Depot website for cactus/succulent soil. The first three soils listed were Miracle-Gro soils. Number three was the soil I used for my succulents …Miracle-Gro Cactus Palm and Citrus Soil. The first three customer questions and answers advised AGAINST using Miracle-Gro Cactus Palm and Citrus Soil. And, two of the three comments mentioned “gnats.” Another customer comment: “… I purchased two 8 qt bags of Miracle Gro Moisture control potting mix. I used it to repot plants I wanted to over winter in my home. It was not long before I started seeing fungus gnats indoors.” So, I think I have found the reason behind the insects flying around my house. My mother used Miracle-Gro products for her “house plants.” So, my “go-to” brand has been always been Miracle-Gro for indoor plants. Unfortunately, it seems that Miracle-Gro products containing “moisture” don’t live up to the Miracle-Gro reputation. November 7, 2015
