Good dirt!
This is a nice little bag of potting soil for indoor plants. The bag is really easy to open by pulling the tab, and it poured easily into my pot without a mess. The bag could be resealed if you have leftover soil, but I used the whole thing. The package says the mycorrhizae are valid for two years after the date printed in the package. The soil is richly colored and damp with an even texture that drains well.

Great for houseplants
I wish I took a before and after because I am so pleased with this potting mix. I repotted this plant with a mix of the existing soil and Rosy and have definitely noticed a difference. This mix is draining much more nicely than the basic soil it came in when I bought it. This is especially helpful for a less experienced houseplant owner like myself (I'm prone to overwatering, so good drainage is key). The eco-friendliness is the cherry on top of a great product that works - really pleased

Great Soil So Far
Very good soil... heslthy plants require good soil! Looking forward to seeing how my peace lilies respond to being repotted with this soil. Rich in color, dense and moist. Good instructions for new planting and repotting. The product is also entirely environmentally friendly, using sustainable ingredients. Only drawback is the small bag, depending on your project it may not be enough product.

So glad I tried this!
Rosy Soil plant potting mix is a superb procts. Kudos to the environmentalists that developed this product!! I have been living an environmentally lifestyle for several years and was so excited to try this new potting mix for my tropical plants! The ingredients they make this soil are incredible. The carbon negative biochar, the plant based composted green waste and wood that provide beneficial microbes and the root boosting mycorrhizae. I highly recommend this product.

Good Quality 🌍 🌱
We picked up this Rosy soil to top off our fiddle leaf fig. The quality of the soil is way above any others we have ever used for our indoor plants. The brand has many different types of soil and this worked best for our situation. The bag was easy to open and use. Not exactly a seeping factor but the packaging looks super nice. We opted to have this shipped to our home and had zero issues.

Out of the bag, Rosy Soil is dark, slightly dense and damp. It does dry into a more coarse state (see photo). The main ingredients are compost and something called biochar - which is basically natural material that has been heated to high temperature (charring it). It seems promising but not having used anything made this way, it's hard to know what to expect. There are microorganisms in the mix which are known to be good for root health (healthy roots, healthy plant). The bag contains enough soil for 2 - 3 six-inch pots (according to the manufacturer), making it a premium product. I have around 60 houseplants, so I don't think I could afford to re-pot all of them! I'll typically make a potting mix from 1/2 soil, 1/4 coir and 1/4 perlite (and I may try it with Rosy Soil), but for a trial run, I re-potted an Aloe using Rosy Soil right out of the bag. So far so good.

Rosy Soil, Earth Positive.
I ordered the Rosy Soil Earth positive indoor potting mix. My wife and I use a lot of potting mix. The soil is peat free, it has beneficial microbes and is carbon negative. It is living soil in a bag. When I first opened the bag, I could see that the soil is very dark. It has a great smell, that alone tells me that it's a great soil. I reached into the bag, got a handful of soil and I could feel the richness of the soil. I would like to have more of this soil and grow many plants. It definitely has my stamp of approval.

100% Carbon Neutral Product, Saves the Earth and your plants.
I love to try new products for my houseplants and my garden. This product is Carbon Neutral, meaning that even with transportation this product poses now new threats to the environment. It is mostly a material called 'bio-char' which is ground charcoal made rom bio mass, organic material. Even the packaging is made from plant material and recycled material. All you have to do is moisten the 'potting soil' and you're ready to use. I was able to create three hanging baskets using this this one package. It does have a heavy nitrogen content, so I worry that it might burn more fragile plants and seedlings, so this will be my first test of this new product.

Nice dirt
Rosy Soil comes in 4 or 8 pound packages which also translates as 4 or 8 pounds of INDOOR soil. Its ingredients are such that moisture retention is better and less fertilizer is required to keep a healthy plant. Instructions say that this is beneficial to all house plants and experience agrees. We grow a lot of our own herbs (Thai and Hispanic cuisine) and they love the stuff. Out itty bitty cacti love it, too.

LOVE this potting soil
So happy Home Depot is carrying this soil. I used to only be able to get in in speciality shops. Now I can easily add it to my order. This potting soil has amped up my planting game. Very easy to use, and I especially like that the bag is resealable. I highly recommend this soil to both newbie and seasoned plant growers.
