Rated 1 out of 5 by from Gnats I bought this a few months ago. I had gnats in a plant that used it. After taking measures to avoid watering and adding pebbles as a topsoil cover the issue went away. I then noticed that the issue spread to several other plants. after a couple months I realize that this is only with the plants that are potted in this product (there are over 20 houseplants in my home). This product holds way too much moisture, I also lost some plants to root rot. I will never buy this again.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from My mom's plant is dying. I used Moisture Control Potting Mix to repot the Peace Lily I received for my mother's funeral. It had grown so big that I had to repot it. I regret the day. My poor plant is dying and I am devastated. I pray I can save it by changing the soil. It has white mold growing on the top of the spoil. I have no idea what to do to save it but this is all things BAD!!!!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Repotting half my plants in different soil! I bought this based on a recommendation and thought the moisture control aspect would be great. Plants started dying. I figured it was me. Just dug one out and found clumps of mushrooms in the soil! Indoors? Now, our favorite tree is dying. I happened to look on here at reviews and am almost certain it is this soil. Same complaints as others. I am buying a totally different potting soil today and repotting about 8 plants. Money wasted on soil and plants! I’ve lost 2 favorites now.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Water pools on top of soil I brought this product because I needed some potting soil. Big mistake! When I water my indoor plants the water pools on top of the soil and takes forever for the water to absorb. Now I notice my plants are dying! Not happy about this as I've some some of this plants for years. I'll never buy this product again and will throw away the full bag I have.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from My Experience w' Miracle-Gro Moisture Control I have used Miracle-Gro products for many years and usually I buy the potting mix in the yellow bag. This year I bought 2 large bags and 2 small bags of this Miracle-Gro Moisture Control potting mix (blue bag). Something in this mix is harming/killing my plants. I have had 2 die already (in just over a month) and I have several with small mushrooms growing up from the potting mix and my plants in general just don't look healthy. I am extremely disappointed and upset because I have now wasted money and time on my plants this year. After reading many of the previous reviews I now know that my experience is not isolated and that this product has apparently had issues for quite some time. Very, very disappointed.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Fungus on top, gnats are bad I have bought multiple bags of the moisture control potting mix and the citrus potting mix and am having trouble with both. Green fungus on top of soil and gnats in the dirt. I have been using miracle grow for years and the last couple of years there have been multiple issues. Dirt turning rock hard, green or white fungus or mold on top of soil and the gnats, at least 2 different types of gnats. I'm not sure what is going on with the potting mixes but I pay good money for this stuff and as I said earlier I've used it for years. At first I thought it was just a bad bag but after purchasing multiple bags and to have these problems with over half of the bags I'm getting frustrated. I've purchased at least 15 bags this year including the citrus mix (at least 4 bags) and 1 bag of orchid mix which right after I planted my orchids in the mix 1 got mealy bugs on it. My husband bought me a Meyer lemon tree and since I planted it in the citrus potting mix I've been fighting gnats that stay in the soil. I'm afraid that I'm going to loose my lemon and the lime tree that I've had for a year because of the gnats. The leaves are falling off of them now and it's my understanding that the gnat larvae will eat the roots and kill the tree. I've tried multiple different things to get rid of these gnats, including insecticidal soap, neem oil, a peroxide and water mix, to no avail. I'm going to repot these trees in different soil and see if I can save them, hopefully. Needless to say but I am truly disappointed with the different miracle grow potting mixes that I've wasted my money on this year.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from The worst I purchased this bag of soil in May, used it for many of my annual summer pots and am completely disappointed. The soil doesn’t retain the moisture as advertised for plants that are in direct sun, it appears to work for the shaded containers but would not recommend this product at all

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Soil stays too wet! I am very disappointed with this product! I am an avid gardener and I put 15-20 potted plants all around my yard every year. This year I decided to use the moisture control soil because we have been getting a lot of rain. This soil does not dry out! It rained 3 days ago and the past 2 days have been 90 degrees. The soil is still very moist and all my impatient plants are dying. I am going to have to replace he soil and, hopefully, get more plants (there may not be any left). I will never use this product again!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from POOR QUALITY CONTROL I bought 4 2 cubic foot bags of Miracle Gro potting mix, moisture control this year and my plants aren't doing well at all! They are growing very slowly and there is a fungus on the top of the soil. I am an avid gardener and know a lot about plants and soil. I have never had this problem before with this soil. We only have 4 months of growing season and this ruined my flowers for this year. My plants have plenty of sun and the soil gets a crust on the top and I have to constantly loosen it for aereation!! There is more bark mulch than normal for this product!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Fungus Gnats, Mushrooms, and Mold Fungas Gnats, Mushrooms, and Mold I re-potted all my plants with this soil. Each plant I re-potted now has a serious infestation of fungus gnats which I can't control. I've tried sprays, insecticides, soapy drenching, sand, potatoes to attract larvae, etc...Still terrible and filling up fly strips daily. Also, the plants with the worst infestation has started to grow mushrooms and mold. I've never had mushrooms grow on indoor houseplants. I water sparingly, once weekly, and the soil doesn't usually seem waterlogged. I even find the insects in my pets water dishes. I have spent far too much time trying to fix a problem that shouldn't have occurred. I wouldn't use this soil again. Unless MiracleGro can come up with a solution.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Horrible potting soil. I thought I was purchasing potting soil and it seems to be more like mulch. I am very disappointed in this product, it was full of sticks and what seemed to be bark chips.

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.
Date published: 2019-04-23
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.
