Succulent & Cactus Soil (1 gallon). Ultra fast draining design helps prevent root rot and over watering. Contains no heavy potting soil ingredients such as sphagnum or peat moss. Provide your prized plants with a potting soil that mimics their natural dry environments. Proven number one seller.
Why Mountain Crest Gardens loves Bonsai Jack® soil: This premium soil is our go-to for indoor succulent growing. And we wouldn't give our favorite plant babies anything less than the best! It's also what we recommend for beginners (who sometimes over-love their plants with too much water). It helps prevent the most common succulent killer: rot. Honestly, we've yet to see a plant in this gritty mix get overwatered (in a pot with a drainage hole of course). It also has a wonderful, clean look, so we never cover it with a top dressing. This truly is the crème de la crème for cactus and succulent lovers who've had enough with rot, fungus gnats, and mold. We're hooked and we're never looking back!
