Plantgrower - 5 days ago

I bought this recently to repot some of my houseplants along with a bag of the other one I reviewed.

I am now fighting an infestation of thrips and have already lost several mature, expensive plants. The fungus gnats are annoying but the thrips are ripping through my plant collection.

full of pests.

This soil is full of pests. If you buy, your plants will suffer.
When opening the bag, I found flies, spider mites and thrips in one bag! DO NOT BUY!

Poor quality with lots of filler

I bought this as it was the only cactus compost I could source locally. The quality is poor in comparison to other brands of cactus compost I have used. There is a lot of wood filler and even some pea shingle sized stones mixed in.
It smells and has the consistency of standard garden compost but with a little more grit and slightly dryer. It's nothing like a proper cactus compost you'd expect.
I used som in the emergency I needed it for but will be binning the rest and buying trusted Levingtons cactus compost instead.

Biggest rip off

Today I feel like Karen - 26 days ago

The bag is tiny and extortionately priced.
Further trying to trick you with the 5ltr label that say in small print underneath ‘when filled’ the quality of soil isn’t even good. They use to sell the decent-ish sized ones but in true bnq spirit obviously decided they weren’t making enough profit.
Don’t support this, find it somewhere else where you’re not being taken for a fool.
