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!

          soil drains better than most but personally would add a bit more peat moss to add to its ability. Overall another will for miracle grow prodoct line!

              The first time I bought this, it was amazing! The last 4 bags were awful! 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!

                Comments about Miracle Gro® Cactus, Palm & Citrus Potting Mix (72078500):

                I've used this a few times exclusively for...what it's made for, this last time, my nice Aloe plant that needed repotting. 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!

                  I love everything Miracle-Gro. The cactus potting mix needs grit or course sand added when potting true cacti. However, it is fine as is for other succulents. All cactus are succulents, but not all succulents are cactus.

                          Replanted two massive aloe plants using this soil. My mistake. I have never had a problem with flies in the ten years i have had these plant and within a week a storm of flies. Was looking for a soil with better drainage and was not expecting this

                            I feel like along with the soil, I purchased a gnat breeding ground. 3 months in and my carnivorous plant can't keep up with how much this stuff let's out. I'm sad I may have to replant my succulents in regular soil as this is the only cactus soil anyone local sells.

                                        I have used this soil twice now, once for my pineapple plants and a few years later for my Snake plant. 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.

                                          My banana tree loves this type of soil as it is well draining. 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.

                                                  Why this item doesn't come in a big bag is my biggest and only complaint

                                                          I used this when I repotted all of my cactus and succulents and it has always made such a difference in the health of my plants. In no time they go from small scrawny plants to big beautiful blooming specimens and many continue to produce blooms regularly. These were cheap plants on sale or clearance that I was told were very difficult to get to bloom and probably wouldn't. They were wrong. Poor plants just needed some love and miracle grow potting mix! Me and my plants are very happy with this product.

                                                                              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.
