I used this for my Christmas Cactus and the soil stays wet int he pot for a long time. Is this normal for this? The soil in my first cactus was not this and the soil dries faster than this
Asked by: ladybug1
No the soil should be dry. Does it have good drainage? This soil helps the water run off better and not stay wet

Is this soil good peace lilies or should I go with Miracle-Gro Moisture Control, I'm on the fence...
Asked by: Jesse
I feel almost all regular potting soil contains too much peat moss and dries out to quickly. I use this for all my plants now because it holds moisture longer. Try it I think you will agree it is fantastic.

Can miracle Gro cactus ,palm and citrus potting mix be used for bonsai tree planting ?

Can miracle Gro cactus ,palm and citrus potting mix be used for bonsai tree planting ?
Asked by: WAYNE
Yes it will work with one trade off, you have to water a bit more during growing season but you will end up with a health roots system with little rot due to the very good drainage,that's also a plus for the winter time where you will use less water, faster drying of the soil. I got a braided bonsai tree, and its in cactus soil it loves it, it might be a bit loss at first till the roots take go but deff a good choice.

I am planting small succulent and cactus plants in a patio planter using this potting mix. How often should I water the plants?
Asked by: ArticFox
Would check the instructions for each of your plants separately, but in general a light watering once or twice a week is more than enough. A lot will depend on the climate where you live as well.

8 qt. Cactus Palm and Citrus Potting Soil Mix is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 136.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from MULTIPLE BAGS INFESTED WITH GNATS**** I purchased a bag of this a while ago to repot some of my plants last spring, I noticed these little tiny flies started to appear around the top of the soil after a week or so. I read online to discover they were fungus gnats and boy are they EXTREMELY difficult to get rid of. I got rid of the gnats after a couple MONTHS. I purchased another bag recently to get myself ready to reprt (thinking the last bag was maybe a bad bag) and I opened the bag this morning and there were SWARMING with the same small fungus gnats! This is very disappointing. I DO NOT RECOMMENED this soil. I have another bag of just regular indoor potting mix from Miracle Gro and didn’t see one bug. This must just be super common for the Palm, Cactus, and Citrus soil. I’m pretty upset.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Stays damp, doesn’t drain well I bought this soil for my succulents and it’s very rich and peat moss-like, and it doesn’t seem to have any of the components other succulent soil has (pumice, sand, etc). It doesn’t drain at all and stays moist and damp. My succulents started rotting so I had to find other soil for them. Really not impressed

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bad drainage I brought the soil for my new succulent arrangement, and it doesn't drain well, at all. Some of the unused succulents were put into small pots with this soil and they don't drain either.

Received a potted Succulent plant as a gift, It of course came in a small bowl and had already pretty much out grew it. Checked with my green thumb neighbor and she suggested we get a potting soil mix made for succulent plants and cactus. From there I knew what to look for and the brand name is what I always look for when repotting plants or starting a garden. One bag fills a 8 quart pot perfectly. To new to say they have grown like weeds, but I have no doubt they will. Highly recommend any Miracle-Gro soil product.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Soil Bugs I bought this for my lemon trees and I had these little flying bugs all over the place. I bought three bags and put them in the basement. I started my indoor gardening where I used pods they were fine until I put them in the basement under lights. The next day I found those little bugs on my mew seedlings. I have to throw out the open bag of Miracle Grow I put in the basement. I went on line and saw that I could sprinkle cinnamon on the soil and it will get rid of these little bugs. Wish me luck.
