Questions & Answers

In what form do you make it?

Similarly, plastic is also used. The amount of "organic" plastic I have compared to the amount of plastic my plants can handle. Live plants, not plastic ones, are in my house.

On the basis of the comments, I'm going to order it. Having purchased used clothing from secondhand retailers, I've noticed a bug in the item. For the hand stores, I put the whole bag in the freezer for a few hours, which is something you can also do with this soil. ?

If soil is placed in the freezer, not all bugs will be killed off. Some will enter a dormant state and reappear once their body temperature rises again (I know this You need to be careful if it's really hot where you live and you still put it in the freezer. Mold may grow inside the bag if the temperature is really high.

Is this to be put under a layer of soil or to lay charcoal on top of this or are we to just use it? Potting my succulents in a pot without drainage is the best option for me. ?

On the bottom of my pot, I plant gravel, then top it with soil. I found it to be effective.

Can you tell me how long this bag of soil lasts? A half bag that I brought two years ago is still left with me. What do you think now? Is it still a good product?

The storage method will determine how long it lasts. Did it have air pressed out of it to produce a tight seal? The plants were kept in a dry or semi-dry environment The location must be dark/dark and not exposed to full sunlight. The answer is yes, but you might want to spread it out on a cookie sheet and bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes to kill any unwanted growth. While it will not be as nutrient-rich as when new, it can be used as a base for soil that has been added to it.

Buying is not the only thing you get, you also get more! I was just starting out in Re- because we were remodeling Putting the cactus in its pot
3/5

When I contacted Hoffman, they informed me that this soil mix had been on the shelf for quite some time. I am not going to return it at this point. Please consider this before you make a purchase.

Take care not to break the glass in the There is a bag that says "Soil Mix," but I hadn't realized that broken shards of glass and other foreign matter would be in there

The soil mix I dried was one of the worst I have ever used
3/5

Water will not adhere to the mix when it is It does not take very much water to water it when it's dry, because the lighter particles will rise to the top as the water forms bubbles which slowly sink. As a consequence, your top soil layer is continuously displaced by water when The soil must be watered equally no matter where inside or outside the plant you plant unless you are willing to spend more time than necessary watering My usual practices are not to write reviews, but this is the worst soil mix that I have ever.

Succulents are not for potted plants
3/5

The soil was not much to my liking, nor was the soil to Only a small amount of perlite is present Also, the soil hardens around the roots and hardens into clumps that essentially starve the roots of water or keep the roots in soggy clumps. After a brief trial, I decided to order the Gritty Soil mix from Bonsai Jack, which I adore. The soil was going to waste, so now I make my own mix out of 50% perlite, 40% gritty mix soil, and 10% of this cactus soil - I hope this helps. The new combination is proving to be a great medium for succulents. There were also a lot of problems with the shipping of the soil, which were also.

There is a high proportion of large pieces of mulch in the composition
3/5

As I was a little disappointed to find that these were listed as something they recommended, in the future I will be more hesitant to take their recommendations. Several of my cactus have already died from it, along with leaves from various echeverias that I have no trouble growing in other mixes. I actually lose cactus as a result of it. In fact, cutting it with equal parts vermiculite and sand fails to yield the desired product. I'm so sorry.

In just a week, I killed my tall cactus over five feet tall
3/5

In my cactus that I had over a year, I put this in. I replanted my cactus with this soil a week after it grew so much it needed a new pot and more dirt. By the third week, my cactus had died. This has gone from green to just white. No life left at all. There was so much anger in me.

Tie a zip around your neck
3/5

Zip ties have not been organic since I'm not sure when they became such a thing. It is not my soil, but I am opposed to having it there. A quality control system.

In our bag, we found no mites It has been a good year for the plants
4/5

As far as I'm concerned, I am not a good gardener. I don't have a It is difficult for me to give you much information regarding this soil's effectiveness, but I can state that our cacti and jade plants fared quite well growing The purpose of posting this review was mainly just to share that our bag was free of any mites or bugs. In light of the other reviews, I saw some concern, so I kept a close eye on things, and for several months there were no signs of insects.
