Hi everyone I recently dirted a tank and upon further inspection of the bag it says it's organic garden soil not potting mix(the bags look exactly alike). I assume it's alright since it's organic and it's by miracle gro but wanted to be sure.

When I tried to do that, my whole tank was pitch black. Good luck with yours.

I'd be interested to know how it goes! I almost bought that when I was looking for the potting mix myself. Ended up buying a completely different product because I couldn't get what I wanted but I've been wondering what would have happened!

its weird i havent been able to find organic potting mix anywhere. the plants seem find it just looks like melt back from new parameters and such i guess ill have to wait to see if it really does affect anything.

Post the results, I'd be interested! Maybe islanders aren't allowed to have Miracle Gro Potting Mix

(I'm on an island if my location doesn't show in the sidebar)

lol where are you from? pros and cons to living on an island you have the most beautiful setting but so many restrictions to what you can have.

I've wondered about basic dirt as well, it seems like most natural rivers and lakes are made of it so I figured it'd be okay.
