    I purchased Miracle Gro Potting Mix to use in my indoor plants as the label states it can be used for Indoors/Outdoors. Prior to using this soil all of my plants were healthy and had no bugs. However, now all the soil in the plants that I used this potting mix in are infested with gnats (tiny flies) and the other day I found mushrooms growing out of one of my pots. Apparently other people have had the same issue as you can see from the other reviews. Save yourself the trouble and don't buy this soil for your indoor plants, otherwise you'll be spending all of your time trying to get rid of flies. I would recommend buying soil specifically for indoor use.

        I just repotted about $350.00 worth of plants in my backyard. I never had white bugs in my soil ever. My plants are potted standing upon a trex deck porch. i never have problems with bugs. I bought three huge bags of this potting soil, I have a half of a bag left. For a week I have been noticing these little white almost transparent bugs. I couldnt understand how they got there until this morning when I went into my garage and peeked inside that bag. There are those tiny bugs everywhere along with fungus and gnats. My backyard is so over run with gnats that I can't go outside without getting attacked and eaten Alive. This soil is very expensive and I thought it was a good name but I was wrong. I am fanatical when it comes to bugs and I'm about the throw everything out now. Been reading reviews on Google, I'm not the only one.

            I've used your potting mix with success for over 15 years. This year you made a bad batch. The potting mix is soggy and won't dry out. There seems to be a lack of peat in the mixture or something. In the past years I would have to water my container daily. This year they just won't dry out, which seems to be stunting the growth of the plants. I'm wondering if your garden soil wasn't mistakenly put into the potting mix bags. I have friends who also have the same problem this year with the mix. I had one bag left over from last year and the mix is fine in the containers which I used it in.

            I have been buying this product for many years and this year I've had to throw three bags of soil away...I had to even start opening my bags of soil outside because opening the bags inside as soon I opened the bag gnats were flying everywhere straight out the bag...some of my plants that I had previously planted in the soil I had to remove the soil and put the plants in water because I had so many gnats flying around in my home....I am looking for a diffrent type of soil....

                Seems I am not the first to have a fungus gnat problem after using the Moisture Control Soil. In 26 years of gardening I have never had fungus gnats until using this potting soil in my containers and pots. I have been waging war on the little "buggers" for more than a month, spent dozens of hours and at least 200.00 trying to save the flowers I also spent time planting and nurturing as well as the money to purchase the flowers. I have lost several flowers to this infestation. I am ready to give up and have a colorless landscape for the remainder of the growing season rather than continue to fight which seems to be a losing battle for me. I will never purchase this product again and take the chance that my plants will become infested. I am totally frustrated!

                    I bought several bags of Miracle Gro Potting Mix, Cactus Soil and Peat Moss at Home Depot to transplant my 15 year old Christmas Cactus as well numerous other houseplants I have had for years. All were thriving but needed bigger pots so I spent a small fortune in this transplanting project. After a few days I noticed a few small gnats flying around my house and didn't really think anything of it. One morning as I inspected my plants while drinking my coffee, I noticed tiny bugs moving around in the soil and then found them in my coffee cup! I went back to Home Depot and purchased a bottle of insect soap and moved all my plants outdoors to completely spray each plant with the soap. After 3 or 4 days I noticed there was no improvement in the infestation so I tried a home-made concoction of Dawn liquid, spices and water. That had no effect at all. I then went to my local garden center and explained the problem. I was told to purchase a bottle of Neem Oil and completely spray the plants. I was told I would need three applications to insure all the gnats would die. I did exactly as I was told and after almost two weeks, the infestation was worse. I could not take it anymore and realized the only way to kill these gnats was to part with my plants. I was so angry not only to be parting with my plants that I had for years, but the for amount of time and money I spent in trying to fix this problem to no avail. I was plant-less for several weeks and now have just started to rebuild my house plant collection. I went back to my garden center and was sold a bag of a competitor's potting mix. I may no longer have my original plants but at least I am now gnat-free. Don't make the same expensive mistake. I have lost hundreds of dollars when you add everything up. I am more angry about losing my plants than the money I lost. I will never buy Miracle Gro soil again.

                        i usually buy every planting product through this company but after bad potting mix i don't know if i will anymore. My plants were blooming big and beautiful and than i added some more mix to the pots and planted a couple more and now all my pots are covered in grass weeds and all my plants are dying.

                          Purchased the large bags of MG potting soil from Lowes, a week later we've got White Flies on everything that was potted with the MG Potting Mix. I've used this product before without any problems. Now I'm trying to get rid of these before they kill the plants. White Flies are very hard exterminate as they live/breed under the leaves. About the only insecticide that I found that works to some extent is Malathion and I purchased the White Fly traps which get some of them. I've read some of the Scott's responses to bug infestation using this product and maybe a warning on the bag that this potential exists if used. Maybe treating the product, heat, prior to bagging would kill off the most pests.

                              As usual I washed my pots well with a little bit of Clorox water and rinsed with a power washer used the regular Miracle grow potting soil and half my plants are dead now. The bags I got were all wood chips. I spoke with my sister in Connecticut and she said the same thing so I didn't just get a bad batch. I will never buy another Miracle Grow product again.

                                  I bought 7 or 8 big bags to plant some seeds on my deck, only a few seeds have actually sprouted. I do have a ton of little white mushrooms growing thou. I have never had this problem with this brand. I am very disappointed.

                                      Last year i bought 6 bags , and it was fantastic quality. This years was wood chips and mulch....killed all tomato, pepper, and flowers that were planted in it! I got a full refund , but the plants and the set back from starting over in mid June may be too much. This soil is actually growing mushrooms! Not to mention when i checked the PH from out of the last bag it was +2 acidic.....im surprised the fungus has lasted! which i might mention....i didn't plant its from a verity that's wild from the west coast...im on the east coast. What they did to there mix they better fix , or ill buy another brand. Soil from your backyard or the woods would be better.

                                          I've always had great luck with this potting soil in the past but this year it was terrible. It's all wood chips! It looks more like mulch than potting soil. Luckily I had some left over from last year to use for starting seeds. Please go back to your old formula!

                                              I've used Miracle-Gro potting soil for many years and have always had success and have trusted it without exception to grow my heirloom seeds from sprout to garden transplant. This year I bought one of those BIG bags from a well-known warehouse store and had a complete seedling failure on everything I planted in it: 20 tomato seeds, 10 Anaheim peppers, 6 jalapeno peppers, and 4 butternut squash plants in their little cups grew to about 1 1/2 inches high, stalled out, turned olive green/gray, and after over two months in their usual cups and under their usual grow-lite, all died. Thirty years of doing the same thing . . . and THIS year everything failed. Don't know what to do next year!

                                                  I have been purchasing Miracle Gro products for years, and have been satisfied until recently, I purchased the potting mix to transplant some plants. About a week or so after my plants were transplanted I started noticing little flies around my plants. I checked in the pots and there was little larvae in the soil. I took the soil from the plants and rinsed them thoroughly then went to get the bag of soil and when I opened it up, dozens of those little flies flew out. The soil I purchased was infested with the bugs. Gross! I don't know if it because this soil has so much mulch in it or not. I know I will not be purchasing this ever again!

                                                      I'm also one of many loyal, long-time users of Miracle Gro Potting Soil who is disappointed with the current formula. I noticed poorer quality (including a higher ratio of mulch-like matter that produced mushrooms# beginning at least a couple of years ago yet have continued buying the soil, thinking that the usual trusted brand was going through an unfortunate phase. For years, I've always immediately supplemented the soil with MG's all-purpose fertilizer, so that's not an issue for me. Despite my efforts, I feel that my plants are not as productive as in previous years. I will choose a different potting soil brand next time #SORRY!) but will continue using other MG products.

                                                            I purchased 10 bags of your product not knowing you changed the formula. I thought ok I'll give it a try. Everything I used it for now has a bonus crop of mushrooms, not for the better though. I've always trusted your products but never again. When you change the formula you should note it in LARGE lettering NEW FORMULA rather than trick people into thinking they are getting the same quality they are used to.

                                                                I have purchased Miracle-Gro Potting mix for years. started my garden from seeds. this year they took longer to sprout and once they did stopped growing. the mix is brown and woody. I even found wood with paint on it. in the past the mix was almost black. it looks like mulch. cheap is not better. I purchased 10 2.2 cubic feet bags expecting the same product as in the past. rename it if you can't keep the same quality in the bag so I know it is different and expect different results.

I bought several bags this year and am very disappointed. The soil is not draining well and after about a month, my plants seemed to be starving. They are stunted and I am having to water with liquid fertilizer several times a week to make up for it. One bag smelled horrible. As soon as I opened it, I felt as though I was standing in the middle of a landfill. There was also a slight odor of diesel mixed in with the smell of garbage. There were large chunks of wood and the consistency is very different from the other bags. Dont know if it makes a difference, but the last bag was 64qt and the others were smaller. I am very disappointed in the quality of soil that miracle grow is putting out this year.

Our home is now infested with fungus gnats - although the cats are having fun chasing them, my husband and I are not happy. It is quite disgusting! I have allowed the soil in the plants to dry out as much as possible, and even sprayed the soil with some homemade insecticidal soap (dish detergent & water). I have been using MiracleGro potting mix for years, and this is the first time I have had this problem. I will try to use sand on top of the soil, as the company has suggested to others who have had the same problem, to see if this helps. Otherwise I may have to get rid of the plants because I can't stand all the gnats in the house. I suggest that Scotts start sterilizing their potting mix for indoor houseplants so this fungus gnat problem doesn't continue to happen. Unfortunately, the consumer has no idea how the soil is stored by the sellers, and - unknowingly- the consumer is the one who has to deal with these insects.

Decided to purchase the Scotts Miracle Gro Moisture Control Potting Mix and use it to repot over ten plants throughout my home and shortly after have ended up with a gnat/fruit fly invasion. My house is covered and I can see the bugs crawling in the soil, windows, floors and other surfaces and flying in the air. Some have even landed on me to my dismay - ugh! I've bought and put up fly strips all over the house, purchased and sprayed the soil and windows frequently with bug spray and while some have died, more and more keep coming. I've even gone so far as to hire an exterminator to come in and spray the house and yet the bugs keep resurfacing. I'm not new to gardening. I've had plants for more than twenty years and repotted many of them. But this is the first time I've used this product and the first time I've ever had a gnat/fruit fly problem in my home. Again, I've had and repotted many plants over the years and never encountered a problem like this. So I cannot believe the problem is common to potting soil mixes. I love my big beautiful plants (some I've had since 1995) and now I'm concerned and upset that I might have to get rid of them to eliminate the infestation problem. All because I bought and used this Miracle Gro Moisture Control Potting Mix. I now deeply regret having done so.

I run a small-scale homestead on a tight income and rely on our garden for food and extra income. I carefully select everything that I use, from the soil to the quality heirloom seeds that I plant in it. This year I bought a small bag of another potting soil until I had the chance to pick up the big bag of miracle-gro potting soil that I usually use. All of the seed that I planted in the other soil did wonderfully. The rest of the seeds that I planted in the miracle-gro either failed to germinate at all or germinated and the quickly died. There were gnats everywhere! These were all planted exactly the same, with exactly the same seed, and were placed in the exact same location. I am a biology grad student and have a lot of experience with factors that can influence results and errors in experiments. The factors were the same except for the soil. I wasted a lot of money on seed that failed in the soil, do not have the normal supply of produce that we depend on to feed out family, and have lost income because of this. I know that you are not liable for any of that, but I do want to make sure that you know that there is an issue with your product. I have always been so happy with it before so hopefully it will be addressed. Unfortunately, I can't afford to chance it with my fall garden and will have to try another product.

I was at the garden center and noticed they had discounted so I bought them and some new containers for our deck railing, I needed soil for the planters, Miracle Grow was the closest to me but I only saw one bag, so I got 4 bags of another brand. After getting the plants home and trimming and watering them back to life I planted them. Well 6 weeks later I noticed that one planter is doing awesome!!! The others are doing fine and thriving and blooming, but this one is just like the commercials when they show an average pot of flowers and then a huge pot of flowers. What a difference, I will always buy Miracle Grow potting soil. Thank you, our deck looks awesome!

The bad news-this potting mixture has definitely changed. I've been using it for years and was surprised this year when I opened the first bag to find so much wood and bark material. I know you need some of this for proper draining but the content was excessive. I proceeded to pot $180.00 worth of annuals only to find it heavy and not draining. The rich, dark potting soil is a thing of the past for this brand. I called to complain; they are refunding me my money. I also made the mistake (MY MISTAKE) of not fully reading the instructions on their Shake 'n Feed Fertilizer which is NOT for container planting especially when using this soil. I must now repot all and must find a more suitable potting soil. Totally disgusted; next year, I'll just buy pots already planted by the nursery!

A quick Internet search lets you know that this is all too common among this particular soil since it's meant to be moist and stay that way. The moisture lets the gnats thrive, and the gnats kill your plant roots. Stay away from the peat moss.... go with something drier.
