Miracle-Gro® Orchid Potting Mix-Coarse Blend



The first step in growing orchids is trying to make them feel at home. One big way to do that is to plant them in coarse, dry soil that mimics the tree bark many grow from in their native tropical rainforests. Miracle-Gro® Orchid Potting Mix Coarse Blend is made just for them and will help you grow a dazzling display.

Why We Love Them

While we're here for the beauty and complexity of orchids, we love how this potting mix makes caring for them super-straightforward. It's blended specifically to give orchids the dry conditions and air movement that keep them comfy. This coarse potting mix drains fast and feeds orchids for up to 6 months.
