    PLEASE READ AND BELIEVE THE REVIEWS, I WAS SUCH A FOOL FOR NOT BELIEVING ON THE INFESTED COMMENTS. THEY ARE REAL!!! As I was adding this potting mix to my plants I flashed my flashlight from my phone to the potting mix after adding it to the top layer of 3 of my favorite plants and I noticed WHITE BUGS crawling on this potting mix. I immediately removed half of the soil from the top layers of my plants that I added with this potting mix and had to re-add new soil on these plants. Luckily I took action after I noticed the white small little bugs crawling EVERYWHERE! I could’ve killed my beautiful Ficus Lyrata, ZZ Plant and Monstera Deliciosa!! PLEASE DO NOT BUY!!!!!!!Read more

    When I bought this product there were no bad reviews regarding the bugs. I repotted two of my orchids in this potting mix and after about a week I noticed tons of small white bugs all over the mix. This killed one of my orchids and has significantly damaged my other orchid. This mix is also much more dirt than it is bark, which is also disappointing. Very bad product, would never recommend.Read more

    First of all, when the bag arrived it was not course blend like it says. It had been so squished that it was more like dirt. It was slightly moist. And when I started reading reviews on other websites I realize all the gnats that were suddenly appearing in my house after using this mix were coming from the mix! My house was infested with gnats because of this stuff. Reviews on Home Depot’s website confirmed it. Don’t buy this. Plus it was killing all my orchids because it was not draining correctly and causing a root rot. Awful. I switched to Better Gro mix.Read more

    This appears to be regular potting mix. For orchids it should be more bark chips. There was a lot of dirt, dust and just really fine particles in this bag. Very few bark chips. It appeared that there was some slow release fertilizer spheres and some perlite. But there was no long strand sphagnum moss, leca, cork, spongerock or coir, so it’s really not a mix of helpful orchid mix. And the bag was only a little over half full. After I opened it a few roaches came out as well. I’m glad I was outside. I was in a pinch so I went ahead and potted my orchids after sifting out the fine dirt and particles, but I have a feeling I have to repot them again next year because of the very fine soils that will probably reduce airflow and compact too easily. In review, this is fine if you want just regular potting soil for any regular plant but for orchids this may not be a good choice.Read more

    I replotted some orchids with this and they got bugs. The plants were living indoors and we’be never had bugs before. It guess I don’t know if that’s where they came from but I threw out the dirt and haven’t had a problem since. I bought this product a few years ago. I’m just combing through old purchases since I use amazon reviews so much and wanted to give back.Read more

    Perfect for repotting my 3 indoor orchids. Very reasonable price for bag size. I placed the bag in the freezer for two days before using (as suggested by others) to kill any potential gnat problems. Did not have any problems. Orchids are thriving.Read more

    Unfortunately I’m unable to post the video of the bag with the bugs just flying everywhere and crawling all inside this bag because of a glitch on the ap. So I purchased this product back the end of November and then I got Covid-19 beginning of December so I was unable to do any repotting of my orchids because I have been dealing with Covid-19 long haul symptoms for the last 6 months today I felt good so I thought I would go ahead and repot my orchids I opened this bag inside my home and there are bugs flying everywhere. I closed the bag and quickly and ran outside. I’m so not happy as my downstairs is filled with house plants that I now have to treat for these mold gnats that just came out of this Bag. The bag has mold the bugs are horrible there’s 2 or 3 different bugs in this bag. I have another bag inside my garage that now I know to open outside and it’s unfortunate because I had already dumped out all of the old Orchid bark and now I have to go and pull all the orchid bark that I just threw away out of the trash and try to get it back into the pot I am so not happy with this product I am so disappointed the bags were kept in my garage which is a cool dry place as recommended on the bags…Read more

    This was expensive. Compared to the brand I wanted to get, it was double the price, but I had to buy this because it was the only product that had next day shipping and I hadn’t realized I was so low on potting soil before I started to repot my orchid. Also, since covid restrictions are on, the local shop has been ordered to close for now. I wish I would have reviews like I usually do, but it was late at night and I needed the product quickly and forgot to do a thorough check. I selected a “coarse” product but I found out that the blend looks nothing like the image on the front–in fact, most of this is just plain, moist dirt with the odd piece of bark mixed in. I was expecting straight bark, hence “coarse”. It would have been better if I had went outside and scavenged bark from the local park instead of paying so much for such a low-quality product. As you can imagine, my Phalaenopsis orchid, which was healthy for 3 years got stem rot 2 weeks after using this product, and had a white mold on top of the . You can see by the images I’ve added the that root system would have been perfectly fine, and the leaves had been green when I would have repotted it. How expensive, what a waste. This plant was a gift from my former employers, and I’m sad to see it die so suddenly. I am extremely annoyed and will never buy this again and it has perhaps turned me off of this brand altogether!Read more

    I, too, got a bag full of bugs! When I opened the bag hundreds of tiny bugs flew out at me. I left the bag outside over night and there are still tons of bugs crawling around inside. Thankfully, Amazon issued me a full refund with no problem! But I won’t buy this one again. It is also much more expensive than buying at a local garden centre.Read more
