Miracle-Gro® Moisture Control® Potting Mix



Watering seems simple, but the line between not enough and too much isn't always clear, so Miracle-Gro® Moisture Control® Potting Mix has you—and your container plants—covered, with protection against over- and under-watering.

Why We Love Them

Because it comes from the experts at Miracle-Gro®, we know this potting soil will grow plants twice as big as unfed plants. And because it's specially formulated with sphagnum peat moss, coir, and a wetting agent, it absorbs up to 33% more water than potting soil without it.

How to Use


  • Fill a pot with a drain hole about 1/3 full with Miracle-Gro® Moisture Control® Potting Mix.
  • Loosen the root ball, then place the plant in the pot.
  • Add more of the potting mix, leaving 1/2-inch between the soil surface and the pot's rim, and press down lightly on the top of the soil.
  • Water and let the pot drain.
