Purchased a 25qt bag of Miracle-Gro potting soil to repot house plants, after planting the plants stopped growing. The leaves went limp. So I checked the PH, etc., I was raised on a farm. I’m not a newbie to growing but these plants stopped growing then I noticed fungus knots. I tried everything I know to rid of them, I did get them under control but then noticed round, some clear, some yellowish orange eggs in the soil. So I took all miracle gro soil out and went thru it. What I found is little yellowish pieces that looks to be beetles, the adults actually look like a piece of yellow shell. How I know is I put them under a microscope. It’s very hard to see that they are a pest without a microscope so I thought maybe it was a bad bag so I bought another bag but of the moisture control. When I got it home opened the bag.

I thoroughly went thru the soil then I knew for certain the pest came in the first bag because the second bag had lots of the same eggs with lots of LIVE adults and I still haven’t found what they really are. The closest I got is it looks to be in the beetle family. Beware if you buy this soil, if you do go thru it to look for any clear, yellowish eggs or in the adults they look like a seed that has cracked open but they have a yellow shell. I would’ve been much better off going to the barn and got manure, dirt, etc. instead of paying for a soil that was loaded with insects, etc.. I purchased the first bag at Lowe’s and the second at Home Depot.

This soil has gone down hill for some reason. It contained large pieces of wood & clay in it. Cutting corners I expect, but at what cost. You’re tarnishing your company’s name. I think we’ll switch brands next summer.

The first bag I bought had a large percentage of the weight attributed to rocks and most of the rest was wood. The second bag was about 90% wood shavings/chips. Almost no soil whatsoever. Garbage. Don’t buy it.

I bought two 50qt bags of this at Costco about 2-3 months ago thinking I was getting a great deal since they were on sale for about $8/bag. I’ve used Miracle-Gro before but in the ground. This year I decided to do a lot of potted plants on my porch. I decided to use this brand since I’ve had great results before. This dirt is terrible. You would have better luck just digging dirt out of the ground to use than this junk! It stays too wet all the time. I had maybe 15 containers of flowers and I’m down to about 5 now because all the others have died due to root rot. I hardly watered my plants at all that are sitting in the full sun and it’s hot outside 90s but yet somehow after 1-2 weeks the dirt is magically still wet. I also should mention that I always bring my containers under shelter to keep them from being rained on so that I could control how much water they receive.

Anyway, I’ve conducted a couple experiments. One where I had a flat with about a 1 inch layer of this potting soil in it. Also, I left the bag open on purpose and after 2 weeks both were still soggy wet despite no water being added to them. This causes tremendous root rot and loss of oxygen to plants roots and kills them. I’ll never buy Miracle-Gro products again. I’ve switched my growing medium to peat moss, black kow, and perlite, and I’ve switched all my fertilizers to Ferti-Lome. Now I understand why I’ve heard such bad things about miracle gro products from avid gardeners. You live and learn!

I purchased three bags of Miracle-Gro potting soil. The first two smelled of a factory chemical. It was overwhelming and stayed in my garden for days. The third bag I …
