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.

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 IT'S soooo BAD HAVING USED THIS FOR MY CITRUS!!!! FUNGUS GNATS ALL OVER! BEWARE!!!!!!!!! STILL HAVE 1 BAG LEFT WILL NOT USE IT! NEVER AGAIN W/ MIRACLE GRO! August 20, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Hate it! I bought 6 new cactus plants for indoors and potted them with Miracle Gro for cactus. Now I have little tiny gnats flying all over the house. Very disappointing. July 16, 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
