Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Product I've been using Moisture Control for years. I have several pots outdoors in which I ONLY use Moisture Control. You don't have to worry about over watering which is the whole idea. My plants love it. I recommend it to family and friends.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Horrible I bought this about a month ago to repot all of my plants because the plants were over growing their pots. These plants had sentimental value to me because they were from my mom and dad’s funeral. Within 2 days I noticed the plants wilting and it looked like something was eating the leaves. I had 9 beautiful, healthy plants and now all I have is a piece of one in water that is rooting. I don’t have any pictures because they were thrown away. I might possibly have a few way before they were repotted.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from MY BABIES ARE DYING I bought this product a few months ago and now my plants are dying. I needed to re pot a few of my house plants and decided to go with the moisture control mix. I have used Miracle Gro products in the past and was excited to try this one out. I have noticed my flowers aren't growing and now there is a white mold type substance growing on several of my plants. I pray I can re pot them in another soil without them dying completely but this is horrible. I was really proud of my babies but now I'm feeling like such a failure. This product will kill a persons dream of being a successful plant grower.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Expensive Mulch with Gnats Purchased this type of soil in hopes that the higher price would mean higher quality than the regular potting “soil”. Once again, plants rotting because the “soil” doesn’t dry out. House and patio full of gnats! This is really just a bag of mulch and gnats. Maybe it’s good if you want to use around outdoor plants as mulch. I’ve wasted so much time and money on miracle gro products.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from New plant failure Every year I start my tomatoes and peppers from seed. This year I tried miracle grow moisture control for some of the seedlings. I had about 30 plants and most of those that I transplanted didn't make it. I found about 1 inch of wet clay soil at the bottom of each pot and the roots of the plant would die. I always bottom water as suggested by the pros. Maybe this product should not be used as such. I also had problems with gnats that I didn't have before. I have went back to using Burpee seed starting mix, even for transplanting.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Will not ever purchase again. I bought a brand new pot and brand new big bag of this soil from Home Depot. Within a couple weeks I had bright yellow fungus growing everywhere. I wish I could post the picture. I planted a clipping from a walking iris... it hasn’t grown at all. Only thing that has grown like crazy is all the fungus mushrooms.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible Product I purchased the moisture control potting mix hoping it would work as well as the regular potting mix. I was wrong. The plants dry out daily and you have to water everyday and my plants have suffered because of the lack of moisture. With this potting mix you are wasting water. Are you putting more Styrofoam in this product to act as a filler to cut down on the price of the product? Very disappointed Garry

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product is great for container gardens. I am 13 years old and this is my first year of vegtable gardening. My mom uses Mircle Gro all the time and in the garage I found this moisture control potting mix. I planted a determinate tomato plant in a big pot with this potting mix and mulch on top. The potting mix is great because it contains the right ingrediants my plant needs and it holds the water without over or under watering. I also planted an indeterminate plant in another pot with Mircle Gro potting mix. Both of the tomatoes are growing a lot of tomatoes already and I'm excited for when they get ripe. The determinate tomato with the moisture control potting mix is growing a whole bunch of tomatoes and it is a really strong plant. If you are looking to grow plants in pots I think this product would be great.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I assume it is not for new seedlings have started my own plants for 40 yrs. I have used other miracle grow products, with good results. I tried the moisture control this time . Lost all the seedlings I transplanted,Also some of the young plants I purchased.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not nearly as good as it used to be I've been using this product for years. It used to work very well to keep the plants watered and healthy. It seems to me that Miracle-Gro changed the formula for this product. Because I have to water the plants almost every day and some days twice a day. The moisture control soil does not seem to retain the water like it used to. I will not buy it next year.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This item is better ham I anticipated! I bought this in May when I ran out of my other potting soil. I went to our local hardware store and this was the only kind they carried. So I bought a couple bags. I wasn't pleased because of the cost difference, but now I am extremely happy I did! The difference in the flowers with this potting soil and the other is crazy. I wanted to post pics bc it is such a huge difference! I highly recommend this. I never write reviews. But I had to with this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Side by Side Miracle-Gro Moisture Control Potting Soil Vs. Other Cheaper Moistuer Control Potting soil When planting my window planter boxes I ran out of Miracle-Gro Moisture Control potting soil so I ran to the local quick mart and picked up a cheap bag of moisture control potting soil thinking it would probably work just as well. I wont be making that mistake again. you can see for yourself the difference after only 2 weeks!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It survived my novice ways For the first time ever, I decided I would buy a plant and pot it. Being young and reckless, I figured moisture control would be something I need because I have no idea what I am doing. WOW, this stuff really helps you control the moisture level in your plant. I WAY over-watered my plant (recall that I am young and reckless) and this stuff sucked it up like nothing and kept my fledgling plant from dying.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from MiracleGro Moisture Control is NOT a good choice for your Bloomers I don't like the performance. Plants potted in this soil haven't performed (and some died). The regular MiracleGro or Organic MiracleGro are your best bets. I don't recommend Moisture Control AT ALL.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Stay away from this stuff, it's a plant killer. If you want to kill your plants, this stuff will do it. My wife and have been gardening for over 40 years, we are in our middle 60's. This stuff will not drain. It retains the water for an extremely long time. We have lost over $30.00 in plants this summer. We are not upset about the cost, we are upset over the dying plants... we don't kill plants. This stuff will look like it is completely dry, but when tested with a moisture meter we found that the roots are drowning in water. I guess it would be great for bog plants, but for plants where you water and expect the water to drain, it never happens. In order to save the plants we had to throw away the moisture control and re-pot with regular Miriacle Gro soil, which does an excellent job. I never in my life thought I would have anything bad to say about a Miracle Gro product, we could always count on Miracle Gro for a great product, however this stuff is a nightmare.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A picture is worth a thousand words! Love Miracle Grow Moisture Control for my container garden. As you can see from my zucchini it produces healthy plants.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very poor potting soil I have been a horticulturist for 40 years and after using several bags this I feel that my plants are the worst I have every grown. They look bad and as far as moisture control I have to water every single day. The product it self looks like ground up bark from a stump grinding machine. I should have known after first bag that it was inferior. Especially for the price. Also have 3 miracle-gro feeders that do not work.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Horrible Potting Soil Worst Potting Soil I ever bought. Been growing houseplants for years and I am pro at it. bought this Soil to replant some plants, a week later, I have MOLD growing on the top soil of my plants, I removed it etc. Weeks went by, and I noticed my plants are not really growing anymore, could not figure out why ? Took one plant out of its pot and I noticed the soil is completely wet. Can only be a matter of time before the roots begin to die :(

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Killed over $20 in plants I purchased this and planted tomatoes, etc. Many of my plants are withering up and dying. They are drying up which is definitely not due to lack of water. It is ridiculous to spend extra money for a product that is advertised to eliminate this problem only to have the plants die. Will not buy it in future.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Best Soil I absolutely love this soil for my containers! I will not use any other soil for all of my containers & I have A LOT of them! My plants grow great with it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality productypcal of the Scotts Company I have used this product the last three years for my geranium plants I keep through the winter. I repot them all in new moisture control soil and results are much better than other products I have tried. The results are nice full plants and with the miracle-gro bloom buster we get a lot of bright blooms. My wife and I do about 50-75 plants every year and this improved our survival rate at near 100%.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from fantastic product for potted plants in drought areas my brother, a landscape architect, turned me onto Miracle Grow soils ages ago. I have since moved from the northeast to southeast and have had to change my way of gardening. This moisture control is perfect my all my plants propagating in pots to fill my still spotty areas. Thanks for a great product

Rated 1 out of 5 by from WAY TO MANY GNAT EGGS!!!!!!!! I just bought a bag of your miracle grow potting mix to reppot my very young vegetable plants in. After buying i looked up the reviews and I read all these horrid review on your product about the gnats and your statement of that a few eggs are laid through the air holes during transfer and storage. So I decided to do a test. I took 6 samples from this bag I just opened (top bottom 4 sides and middle) and I brought out my old microscope to see what I could find and what I saw scared me. There are so many gnat eggs in here. There's actual clumps of them, i couldnt keep track when counting those in clumps. But i counted single ones i saw and I can get over 25 of them in the small view of my microscope, in a small very scattered and spread sample and that's what I counted before loosing track. All 6 samples were the same result. Meaning that the eggs are like this throughout the whole bag. There's just way to many plain eggs to have been laid there through the holes. More like they were in there since possessing. I would highly recommend your people look into this and find a way to fix it. I'm very unhappy with this. But I shall continue with the planting and I hope that this mix makes my plants 2 times as big like you say. I will use sand as you suggest but I surely hope you fix this or I'm never buying another thing from you and I'll make sure I spread that cause that many eggs in a bag is ridiculous and no one deserves to have gnats all over their house and killing their plants

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Moisture Control potting soil mix Miricle grow soil is the only ones i ever use, after finding that other sor companies add, bark sticks and rocks. The reason i use the moisture control soil is that i have dozens of large pots filled with trees, dogwood, corkscrew willow, maple, bamboo and cannas, snapdragons, rose, delphinium, Lily of the nile. The pots sit out on my driveway and the heat gets hot during summer, well until i started using the moisture control soil i was losing a few plants a year due to drought. I try and water everyday but it wasn't enough. With the moisture control I no longer have to worry about the plants dying or the soil hard panning. Sometimes i mix the moisture control with other miracle grow soil and that works fine too. If you are doing pots and containers you just have to use moisture control [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It really works Been using this product for 4 or 5 years now. I get flowers from a local nursery and this really helps to keep them growing and blooming all season. I had tried other bargain product from the local big box store and none performed as well. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 1 out of 5 by from this product has gnats all over my house Two months, I replanted my house plant using this product , I now have little gnats flying all around my house. I never had any problem with gnats until I used this product and they are all over my plant and my house. I am now going to have to buy different potting soil & replant again & hope it doesn't die

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Did not control overwatering from the rain and rotted all my plants. I switched all my outdoor pots to this product this summer and have lost all potted flowers and shrubs to root rot all season long due to it not ever drying out when it rains. I live in AZ and found it extremely unsatisfactory for controlling over-watering.
