        Q:What’s the best soil for purple Shamrock Oxalis?
        by|Dec 1, 2023
        1 Answer
        Answer This Question

        A:  Its roots are prone to rotting if the soil retains too much moisture, so loamy or sandy soil is best. Miracle-Gro® Orchid Potting Mix Coarse Blend (loamy) or Miracle-Gro® Succulent Potting Mix (sandy) would be good options for you.

            I bought to prevent gnats and came full of eggs
            I bought 4 bags of this product to repot my plant that had a few gnats growing on the soil. After adding the first bag, I noticed the soil from the bag was full of gnat eggs. This is a product to avoid gnats and it came infested of eggs. We tried to remove one by one but there were so many. See picture

            We're sorry to read about your disappointment with Miracle-Gro Tropical Potting Mix and appreciate your feedback.

            Insects could not survive the composting and packing process. However, it is possible for them to enter the bag during shipping and storage. Insects may also come in with soil of transplanted plants or enter through cracks, crevices, open windows or doors simply looking for suitable environment.

            The small flying insects are likely fungus gnats. These insects do not harm humans and do little plant damage (they primarily feed on the fungus found naturally in soil), but can be a nuisance. A possible way to control fungus gnats includes allowing the soil to dry out as much as possible between watering, which will help control the larvae. Also, you can try applying at least 1/2 inch of horticultural sand on top of the soil of potted/container plants; the larvae cannot burrow through the sand and will die.

            We want you to be confident in our products. For this reason, we offer a product guarantee to our consumers. At your earliest convenience, please reach out to us at 877-220-3089 if we can further assist. miracle-gro

              Lots of Fungus Gnats and Doesn’t Drain Properly
              I noticed a lot of fungus gnats on the fly trap after using this soil to plant after 2 weeks. Frustratingly I’d spent a lot of effort to get rid of them on other plants just months before. The soil also retains too much water and doesn’t drain well, contrary to what the packaging says, hence causing the fungus gnats and potentially root rot.

                Lots of Fungus Gnats
                I saw lots of fungus gnats on the fly trap 2 weeks after planting with this soil. This soil doesn’t drain well at all, and is completely misleading on the packaging!

Check the bottom of the container if possible to verify that there is an open drainage hole.

                  My green thumb just got greener!
                  Bought my first 3 bags a month ago. This planting mix is so convenient. Has all that my tropicals need. Drains well,I can use slightly less water to water my plants. And it helps to use Miracle Gro Orchid Mix at the bottom of the pot before adding Tropical potting mix.

                    Terrible. Don’t use it on mid to high end plants
                    Under no circumstance use this product on any type of monstera, philodendron, Hoya or tropical plant prone to root rot. This mix retains water for way too long and you would have to water counting drops to avoid root rot or overwatering. You actually have to make sure that at least an inch of the soil is dry before you water and it also gets awfully compacted after a week or two. So far I lost 2 Monsteras Peru, 1 Monstera Deliciosa and I am fighting to recover another 2 Monstera Peru, 4 Monstera Deliciosa, 2 Monstera Tretrasperma and 2 Monstera Adansonii. Finally if you bought it, mix it with perlite, worm castings, leca, more lava rocks, bark or pumice rock. Or just don’t use it!

                      Perfect for plants
                      [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I recieved this miracle grow potting soil to try out from Scotts and i love how well it is working with my bell pepper plants! This potting mix keeps my plants healthy and has them thriving! I love the dark colored soil and the ease of using! When watering my olants the soil keeps them moist and doesnt over saturate my plants!

                        Worth it
                        [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] My snake plan has been looking very thin for a while no mater what I did. Once I repotted with this soil, my plant started to fill out! The leaves are thicker and a nice lush green! The cuttings also!

                          My Monstera is Thriving
                          [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I have a Monstera that was outgrowing it’s pot. It was getting so crazy that it had roots shooting out mid air in attempt to find new soil. I sawed off the pieces that were hanging outside the pot and placed them in Scott’s Tropical Potting Mix and after only a few weeks they are making new leaves.
