Miracle-Gro® African Violet Potting Mix



Keeping African Violets happy takes knowing what they like, and when it comes to soil, they like it on the acidic side. Miracle-Gro® African Violet Potting Mix is specially formulated for this indoor bloomer with a pH that's adjusted for big blossoms and brilliant color.

Why We Love Them

We'd do just about anything for our African Violets, but turns out, this potting mix does most of it for us. Designed with our blooming beauties in mind, it has a slightly acidic pH and rich organic materials, so water drains well and air gets where it needs to go. Plus it feeds for up to 6 months, giving our plants a leg up when it comes to building strong root systems.
