I recently decided to try my hand at growing succulents indoors. This potting mix was a very inexpensive way to provide a soil that was just right for my succulents. I currently have 4 plants in this mix and all are doing well. To buy and mix my own soil would be costly and I might not mix it correctly. The Miracle-Gro mix has provided a great potting mix to help keep my plants healthy and growing well while providing the right amount of drainage. I hope to add more succulents to my collection soon and plan to continue using Miracle-Gro Cactus, Palm, and Citrus Soil.

I had two lemon trees I had started from seed a year ago. They were doing so well except the soil had fungus gnats from the Miracle Gro I had used. I tried everything to get rid of the gnats. I finally decided to just start over. I very carefully removed the trees. Washed the roots. Got a new pot and new soil. Huge mistake. I left town for a few days and when I came back I was inspecting the soil and saw something move! I took a plastic fork and ruffed up the soil to find dozens of thumbnail sized spiders in the soil!! That was it!! I am SO done with Miracle Gro!

          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.

              I think the consistency of this product is well suited for the cactus and palm plants as they need a soil that can drain well. Succulents seem to do very well in this mix. In the past, I have sometimes made my own mix, but this sure simplifies things!

                  I used the Miracle Grow Cactus, Palm, and Citrus Potting Mix to transplant a few young cacti and a couple of succulents. I waited a few weeks to see whether I noticed a difference between the product
                  and the regular potting soil I used before. I did not notice the plants suffer any signs of stress. In fact they are looking vibrant. I like that food is included in the mix and that all I need to do is water the plants occasionally.

                        I've always struggled with either watering too much or not enough with cactus/succulents. More often than not, it's been too much. But with the help of Miracle-Grow Cactus, Palm & Citrus Potting Mix, I bought some decorative little cups and potted small cactus/succulents. They are just darling and even better, they're still alive thanks to Miracle-Gro!

                          Most of my cactus plants are in somewhat shallow containers. I use ice cubes to water them and this soil holds the moisture without letting the plant sit in soil that is too wet. I have sever pots of various sizes as decorations in the sunroom and am happy with the product.

                                                      I used this mix to plant a Meyer Lemon Tree in a very large pot. The tree is thriving.

Upon opening, I noticed that the mixture was more peatmoss than anything! And very little sand... Against my better judgment, I used it anyway. First off, I water my cactus and succulents with a feeding tube syringe, as to not get them overly wet. Also, all of my containers have drain holes. Needless to say, it holds on to the moisture and after watering JUST ONCE, over half of my newly bought succulents, that were healthy in the nursery, are rotting!

I've used this also on some of my cacti. My only real complaint is the size of the bag, which is too small and as such, too expensive. I'd prefer a size that was at a minimum twice as large as this one. But other than that, that's about my only complaint. Got a cacti or aloe plant of your own that needs repotting?? This is the soil to get for that and in my experience it works great!

However, it is fine as is for other succulents. All cactus are succulents, but not all succulents are cactus.

They were doing so well except the soil had fungus gnats from the Miracle Gro I had used. I tried everything to get rid of the gnats. I finally decided to just start over. I very carefully removed the trees. Washed the roots. Got a new pot and new soil. Huge mistake. I left town for a few days and when I came back I was inspecting the soil and saw something move! I took a plastic fork and ruffed up the soil to find dozens of thumbnail sized spiders in the soil!! That was it!! I am SO done with Miracle Gro!

It is the worst for festering Fungus Gnats! Both times i have gotten colonies of those flys and only in the ones with this soil. All other plants in my house with standard potting soil didn't have a issue. Also i would assume a soil for desert plants would dry out easily, if find that it always seems damp. Adding to a environment that the gnats love.

Unfortunately, this tiny bag runs out fast. I think that you should at least produce a 16 qt bag. Palm trees and citruses tend to grow very big.
