I have a $100 lowes gift card, and all I have left to get is the “8 large bags of high quality organic potting soil” It would be great if I could pick this up at lowes.

I would go with 1/3 mix of peat/coco, compost/ worm castings, perlite/rice hulls, and then Ammendment your soil.

If need be tho I don’t think thiswould hurt you at all. It is an organic potting soil but would like to see the ingredients in the mix before making a decision.

that’s what ive found. the regular potting mix (no details on the outdoor mix) consists of compost (made of biowaste from the wastewater treatment plant next door and a non woody organic compost), peat moss, and pumice. it actually doesn’t look that bad.

I forgot to mention I am growing indoors. I live in Colorado and am growing legally so stealth is not a problem. I really am just trying to get what i can from Lowes since I have a gift card there.

I just got back from Lowes and the Eko Outdoor potting soil which I’ve linked to above shows to contain the following ingredients: “EKO Compost, sphagnum peat moss, pumice and dehydrated poultry waste”.

Also I found out lowes also carries this pro mix(thumbnail attached)

I’m thinking about using the pro-mix instead.

Lowe’s ‘Staygreen Potting Mix-Moisture Control’

This is weird potting mix – too many moisture chrystals – I can get it to dry out!

Anyone else have this problem?

If your using this for seeds, I was told to never use the moisture control for seeds. I bought the all purpose staygreen potting mix but it smells so bad that I only used a small portion and have dumped the rest far up my street so I dont have to smell it anymore.

I like the Stay-Green, but I don’t use the moisture-controlled type. I never noticed a bad smell.

I luckily did not use it to wintersow – but I have been filling my pots with it and I don’t like it.

Unfortunately, that’s the only Staygreen our Lowe’s carries. Thanks
