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.

Cactus Palm and Citrus Soil is rated 3.6 out of 5 by 36.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Do NOT have a green thumb but decided to plant lemon seeds and try after seeing my friend's lemon... Do NOT have a green thumb but decided to plant lemon seeds and try after seeing my friend's lemon plant with lemons on it right here in Dallas, Texas. Followed directions from videos on YouTube and was surprised when I got sprouts on seeds. Planted them in soil like video showed but then I noticed little bugs all around my plants one morning. Friend told me to use Cactus,Palm&Citrus Potting Mix which I did and plants are doing great.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Unfortunate Since taking the advice of a Home Depot employee and purchasing this soil to transplant my succulents into, they ALL have died. They were thriving in their original containers for over 6 months. I wanted to put them together in a beautiful pot I was gifted and they have all done horrible. The only thing different is the soil. Very sad to have lost all my beautiful succulents due to this soil. I do not recommend this soil.

Soil attracted many many gnats and I live in an apartment and my plants are indoors. I bought this because of the cheap price. I spent over triple that amount on fixes to get rid of the gnats. Also had some mushroom contaminates which I could live with, because of course soil isn't sterile. If you get this I would sterilize the soil in an oven before use.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from 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.
