Questions & Answers

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.

Asked by: DancingCactus
Succulent and cacti soil should not have any peat moss in them, it holds to much moisture. Go to “Sucforyou” on YouTube. She has a recipe for amazing soil!!!!!

mini Jade and Zebra Cactus

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?
Asked by: Jordan
I've used this for succulents for years and the plants do very well. (jade plants, sedum adolphii, snake plants, hoya, easter cactus, etc.) Someone else answered that you need to add amendments but I have never done that and my plants are fine. The only thing you have to do is sterilize the soil in the oven to kill fungus gnats (do this for all potting soil or you will regret it -- trust me.) 300 degrees for 90 minutes in trays in the oven.

Cactus Palm and Citrus Potting Mix is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 100.

I repotted 20 succulents with this in unglazed terracotta pots with a hole on the bottom. The first watering sunk in nicely. After the 2nd and 3rd watering 4 succulents rotted. I don't find this soil easy to use as the water sits on the surface and will not sink in as the soil quickly became compacted. I've uprooted, fluffed and crumbled the soil apart. During this procedure I saw the last 1/2-1" soil completely sopping wet. I water once every 1-3 weeks but the soil is getting very hard to work with and it definitely didn't meet my expectations. I will be mixing my own succulent soil from now on.

This soil seems OK for some succulents , have not tried it for palms or citrus, but it's NOT cactus soil and is not suitable for true cactus. It stays way too wet for too long, it's not rapid-draining. Cactus soil should drain through very fast but this soil does not, and cactus soil should not stay moist for days, but this soil does. It will rot the cactus. I will either have to buy perlite and sand and grit to mix with this for cactus, or find another brand that is really cactus soil. Disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from New life to my plants I used this product to repot my 3 cactus plants. I took the plants out trimmed the roots and washed the inside of the pots. I then put new soil in the pot and placed the plants back into the soil. 3 months after repotting my 3 plants I can see new growth and health plants. 1 plant had been in its pot for 5 years and was not growing much. After being repotted it started to grow again. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 3 out of 5 by from add perlite and you're good This soil is pretty good for what it is, I think its best as a base for your own cactus soil mix. It may cost a bit more to add perlite and maybe some sand for bettter drainage but it will multiply the amount of soil and you get to mix fresh soil each time you need it. I think if they wont add sand to the mix they should at least sell it seperately like they do the perlite. For tropical (exiotic angel) and citrus plants its fine on its own. Just don't buy the liquid "foam" fertilizer for succulents by Miracle Grow, not foam and turned a lot of my succulents black.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from My poor plants... I had my cacti for about a year and a half when I finally decided it was time to transplant them. I was so excited to find this potting mix to help my plants along the way. Unfortunately, within a few weeks ALL of my cacti withered away. The mix should be more for succulents as I believe the soil did not drain well enough. I had 5 cacti that died and only one that lived. Very sad, and I would not recommend this for true cacti.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Colorful results I planted the same strain in two different potting soil, one was Miricale-Grow cactus, palm and citrus potting mix. The plants that are growing out of this mix are showing hints of the color purple where as the seeds planted in regular soil did not show any color but green, which I think is interesting.

I'm sure this soil is great for some things, but I purchased it because I thought it would be fast draining. My soil is staying wet for too long and I'm pretty sure it will lead to root rot if not changed. I suggest buying different soil or sand to cut it with if you have a cactus or similar plant.
