What is the difference between potting soil and potting mix?
Potting soil and potting mix refer to the same general product: soil for your potted plants. Importantly, however, make sure your soil and/or mix is for potting only when it comes to indoor plants. This Miracle-Gro African Violet Potting Mix is exactly right for indoor-planted African Violets.
Gardening soil for outdoor use is not the same thing and has a very different balance that can actually be counterproductive for plants confined to a pot or other vessel! The same goes for the inverse: don’t use potting mix for in-ground gardening! Learn more about the difference in one of Martha’s gardening books, for instance!
What are the dangers of potting mix?
Some unreliable brands of potting mix can contain harmful bacteria. That’s why it’s essential for Martha to be selective about what soil she brings into her home. Miracle-Gro has exceptional quality and standards, which is why they are one of Martha’s most trusted collaborators in gardening.
Is potting mix safe for indoor plants?
Potting mix is ideal for indoor plants - in fact, you won’t want to use anything but dedicated potting soil for your indoor plants.
The Miracle-Gro African Violet Potting Mix maximizes the successful growth of your African Violet by providing exactly the mineral balance African Violets need to succeed. They will grow into beautiful purple explosions of color!
Can regular potting mix be used for African Violets?
