Miracle-Gro® Moisture Control® Potting Mix 8 Qt. is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 595.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don't Buy this Soil for Indoor Plants I purchased Miracle Gro Potting Mix to use in my indoor plants as the label states it can be used for Indoors/Outdoors. Prior to using this soil all of my plants were healthy and had no bugs. However, now all the soil in the plants that I used this potting mix in are infested with gnats (tiny flies) and the other day I found mushrooms growing out of one of my pots. Apparently other people have had the same issue as you can see from the other reviews. Save yourself the trouble and don't buy this soil for your indoor plants, otherwise you'll be spending all of your time trying to get rid of flies. I would recommend buying soil specifically for indoor use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This Potting Mix is by far the best around! I am a total newbie to gardening of any sorts. I purchased a bag of Miracle Grow Moisture Control Potting Mix to try out because of its great ability to retain moisture; and its ingredients make it so it is almost impossible to overwater. I am having awesome results with my patio tomato plants, that i have in 5 gallon buckets; and am also having great results growing some herbs with this mix. This stuff slowly feeds your plants and vegetables so you do not need to purchase more products to fertilize or feed your plants. I would highly recommend this product to anyone, no matter if you are a Master Gardner or a Newbie like myself. A+

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Moisture control really does make a difference! My Mom and I decided to test how well the MoistureControl potting mix works last year. We both purchased the same plants, at the same nursery, at the same time ...she planted hers in regular potting soil in hanging baskets, and I planted mine in MoistureControl in the same type of hanging basket. We watered ours at the same times, and we only live a half mile away from each other so weather conditions were the same also. Mine grew huge and had almost twice as many flowers as hers(with the MoistureControl mix). Hers did well, but weren't as lush and flowery as mine. Needless to say were were both shocked at the difference!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Moisture Control Potting Mix My patio looked like a mini version of our big Philadelphia flower show! I know that it was the result of my spring repotting tasks but also because I used the Moisture Control mix. I knew in the spring that there would be long stretches when i would be away from home and was concerned about my potted house plants and even patio tomatoes would dry out. I opted for the moisture control and couldn't be more pleased with the results! I am actually giving away some plants now that I have to move them all back in the house because the size of my showy plants are pushing me out of the sun room!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from this item was awful! I have been purchasing Miracle Gro products for years, and have been satisfied until recently, I purchased the potting mix to transplant some plants. About a week or so after my plants were transplanted I started noticing little flies around my plants. I checked in the pots and there was little larvae in the soil. I took the soil from the plants and rinsed them thoroughly then went to get the bag of soil and when I opened it up, dozens of those little flies flew out. The soil I purchased was infested with the bugs. Gross! I don't know if it because this soil has so much mulch in it or not. I know I will not be purchasing this ever again!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from not happy Last fall I purchased two 8qt bags of Miracle Gro Moisture control potting mix. I used it to repot plants I wanted to over winter in my home. It was not long before I started seeing fungus gnats indoors. I tried to isolate the plants I thought they may be coming from. I had many plants that were special to me also started showing the gnats. I took a sample of the potting mix, moistened it and covered for some days. When I uncovered this sample, it was full of FUNGUS GNATS!!! Now I am seeing these pests in my newest cuttings with a fragile root system. I tried a layer of fine sand with limited success. Do you have a response? Thank you, Roberta Myers Extension Master Gardener/ St Louis County Duluth, Minn.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product performs as stated I am responsible for all the flowers, landscaping and pots at our local country club. This year we used only Miracle-Gro® Moisture Control® Potting Mix in our pots around the country club. We knew with the 6 month feeding and moisture control to help with over and under watering problems that we would be protected even when we couldn't always be there to baby our planters filled with our beautiful flowers. We have had nothing but rave reviews on every pot that we planted this year because they are flourishing and growing so beautifully. Thank you Miracle Grow, for another great product!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from I have always used miracle indoor and outdoor potting soil and have trusted all my plants to your product. recently i have purchased several large bags of miracle gro indoor plant soil.However for some reason i have developed insects on my house plants that i didn't have until I put your product on them. These particular plan are very special to me,they are from my only daughters funeral from four years ago. I have (as expected) i have held them close to my heart and given them very special care. I have tried indoor pest sprays and they have been unsuccessful.I am so afraid they are going to die,which would break my heart. please help. suggestions welcome.I hace also tried the dawn dish soap idea,unsuccessfully.thank you,gina jackson
