I ordered this soil after searching the local area in goa and couldn't find any so I ordered it finally and I decided to use it for planted aquarium after watching video from Youtube for lower budget planted tank.. It is good for now, will update on how the underwater plants are going... Good soil content with organic matter, no stones and pebbles found. Updated Now the plant growth is very good..
The pottingmix is not good and also i received an open package. i have bought a pottingmix from bigbazaar 49 rs price 900 gms and i mix it with cocopeat and garden soil and it filled 3 pots and it was really good i plated seeds in them and they all are growing but this product is not worth even a single penny quality and above all it took 7 day to deliver this lower grade product. i don't think there will be growing any thing in this kind of product..seems like trustbasket is not to be trusted at all..!!
I am not sure why but my plants growth is stunted . I mixed it with regular red soil and planted creeper seeds. It took more than normal time for the seeds to germinate and then it is taking more than normal time for the plants to grow. Did i receive a duplicate potting soil? Note that normal seeds placed in regular red soil have already grown taller and heathly than plants seeded using your potting soil.
This is really superb soil mix for seeds germination. No need to mix anything just put this in pot and just sow the seeds. I sowed flower seeds in this mixture amazingly I got results in 3 days. I would recommend this product. it is very good soil mix.
This compost is very clean, devoid of bugs which is good for those of us who are squirmish around compost. It's clean, smells good and plants grow well. My only complaint is why would you back the compost in a plastic bag within a plastic bag that gets shipped in a plastic wrapped pack? Amazon and Trust basket, you need to rethink your packaging when it comes to shipping dirt.
Almost immediately after putting the mix in a pot the soil developed fungus on it. I used some normal soil from an empty plot in another pot and planted chillies in both the pots. The chillies potted in normal soil are doing way better. They are growing faster and are much healthier. No fungus on that one. I have placed both of them side by side.
My suggestion: Get normal soil. Mix cocopeat or vermicompost to make it light depending on your plant's requirements.
Didn't work for me at all. Killed my curry leaf plant and could not get anything else to grow in this. I have confirmed it is the soil that is an issue by trying to grow lemon seedlings on this and another pottingmix I had - the seedling grew fine in my previous mix.
Good product, not sure how authentic as i just planted. But i can say that its very fine like black sand(reati). I also purchases vermicompost with this and mixed both to put in the pot, but it was very fine and all no water was being retained. Cocopeat helped a little bit its not like typical garden soil. I bought some more sticky soil locally and mixed with the above for water retention.
Pottingmix is a waste of money. No fertility of the mix. If you don't add compost, no plant can grow. If it's not a complete ready to use mix soil why to add these. So highly overpriced of only soil in the name of pottiing mix.
