The good news is if you just got them, they don't need repotting.
BigBill said:Ingredients typically include soil, peat moss, perlite/sponge rock, slow release fertilizer.
There is a most recent blend on the market in the last several years called "moisture retention" potting soil. I can't speak to what they put in the soil mixture to hold more moisture as I have never used it.
Could the additive be more peat moss or something else be added?Someone who has used it can perhaps address what the components might be?
Personally I don't feel the need to use a moisture retentive soil in my outdoor pots and containers. In Michigan, we get rain all year long. We get thundershowers. We water our plants according to what we feel to be an appropriate schedule. I have trouble accepting this type of soil where I can get thundershowers dropping 2-4" of rain within a two hour period. How can I get all that water out of a moisture retentive soil?
But if you lived in South Florida where their dry season lasts 8 months or so, I can see where a moisture retentive soil might be helpful in getting plants through the lean times. But in Florida I did have a thundershower there that dropped 4"+ in 45 minutes!!! Can you imagine?!
