The recent reviews on this aren't great. The 8 qt bag of miracle gro brand cactus potting soil is only $5. So twice as much for less than twice the price of this 2qt bag at $3.

A peat based mix is not what you want for cacti. My varied collection of over 200 grow in entirely inorganic media, mostly straight pumice.

This is ridiculous unless you need this tiny amount of dirt. Do people really buy dirt on amazon? Go to your local HD/Lowes store and buy it for cheaper.

This stuff is terrible. Do your plants a favor and don't buy this for them.

Actually I'm a cactus lover. Historically I've used Miracle-Gro for my potted cacti, but am hoping for good results with this potting soil as well. I bought one. Smilie

I refuse to use anything Miracle Gro. But peat moss is actually awful for the environment if you care about that type of thing. Go to your local garden center and get some decent potting mix. Plus this will fill like one 12 inch pot. It's such a small amount.

For comparison, this organic succulent mix is (.75/qt). Home Depot has Miracle Gro cactus mix normally at $5 for 8 qts (0.63/qt). Dr. Earth brand organic succulent and cactus mix is $28 for 25 qts, (1.12/qt). Amazon still saves a trip to the store.

We just usually go with the Kellogg's bags. They are larger and organic. And they've worked great so far.

Cactus and succulents will grow in just about anything and you're not eating them. Just scrape up a bag of dirt on the side of the road.
