Answer: I like Kellog's or Miracle Gro potting soil for my houseplants. Either will work for you and both are available from Home Depot. What you might want to do, whether you replace the potting soil in your houseplants or not, is to treat your potted plants to a good soaking. Soil in containers can develop air pockets around the roots after a while. You can water and water and the soil will remain dry. To overcome this, periodically immerse the potted plants in a larger container of water. Let them sit for 15 minutes, or until no more bubbles appear at the surface. Then set the pots somewhere to drain. This will thoroughly saturate the soil and the plants will get all the moisture they require. I do this every 3-4 weeks and my potted plants are quite happy.
Best wishes with your houseplants.
