nice peat-free mix

This is a good potting mix, peat-free if that's important to you.This is a smaller bag, good for smaller projects and to have on hand. Would fill an 8-inch nursery pot well.Perlite, coco coir, and worm castings are in most of my mixes or I add them myself so it's nice that it's already in here to help feed plants and keep drainage.The mix is not super chunky so you might want to add orchid bark if you're looking for a faster draining solution.A little on the pricey side but has high quality ingredients.

Good Quality

This is a good brand of potting Mix. The only downside is there's not a lot in the bag. I think for the price, there should be more in the bag. The bag is half full.

Great for permanant indoor plants!

This potting mix is perfect! I initially thought it was for starting seeds in trays, but the mix itself is a bit too loose for starting seeds, its better for interior plants. It comes with just enough to fill a 4 QT container, and the soil is very loose and perfect for transplanting a plant you buy from the store! great product
