To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
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..
DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT IF YOU DON'T WANT YOUR PLANTS TO DIE !! It's total scam. This product is no soil, it is dried and crushed ctc tea leaves. Trust basket does not even bother to mix soil with it. Just 100% tea leaves. The realisation hits you the moment you first touch the so called soil. It stained all my fingernails in the first place...tadaaa soil doesn't stain your nails. Day 4 and all my plants have started wilting and withering. They look sick and unable to spread out their leaves. That too I just used it as a top up soil. Just a thin layer of it over my regular soil to make up for the soil lost everyday while watering and my plants are in bad shape...god knows what would happen if I planted plants in it.
Update : 2 of my plants have died. Their leaves were totally burnt. Many other plants have burnt leaves now. I scraped the trust basket soil out of a few plants and they start to look better already. I am gonna scrape off and throw out this mix as much as possible from the rest of my plants. Uploaded a pic for reference. This is what this mix does to your plants...it just burns the leaves.
inferior product selling in scientific name and pictures, the reality it's poor. plants die after using, doesn't help plant in anyways but negative effect or harm. stopped buying trust basket, waste of money and time, NO TRUST
After 1 week I was able to see small white - dot kind worms , which were moving all around.. it was really horrible.. I threw that mud.. waste of money..water is not getting evaporated even though it is in full sunlight & no rains..due to which these worms might have generated..
Bought this product during lockdown to grow vegies and cuttings....Writing a review after 2 months of using the soil . Soooo....very diappointed. Didnot expect this from TustBasket...It is not soil at all....90% seems to be cocopeat so it is light in weight...cutting/plants that I potted in this medium have either died or are not growing at all which indicates that it does not have any nutrients at all. Plats that I planted in ordinary garden soil are growing much much better and healthier that the ones I planted in this soil mix.
i had read many negative reviews for this but still went ahead and bot this to try as this had good rating and looked promising but it turns out to be wat others are saying . it definitely spoiled my sapplings. the leaves wighted and plant died . only tulsi survived. but i see some brown spots. corriander seeds hd good sprouting.
This is the worst product I have purchased from Amazon so far. The soil is not good for seed germination. It took about 3-4 weeks for the bulbs to grow and after one month the plant died. The seeds that I planted on this soil does not germinate at all in comparison to the other soils that i have used. Waste of time, hopes and money.
I wanted to rate this with a minus 5 rating. Though the soil looked dark and rich, it was a grand waste of money. Not worth a penny. I planted 4 pots from the 10 kg and nothing is able to grow in it. Leaves are yellow and plant in 2 pots is barely 6 inches. Infact in one pot nothing grows above an inch. The mud on roadside will be better to use. Please avoid buying it at all cost.
