I tried this product in the spring and really loved it. Now I only buy this product as it keeps my plants so healthy. I'm notorious for not watering my plants on a regular basis. This saves the plants from my fickle watering schedule.

Awful mix - Never dries out in the slightest
Terrible potting mix. I have 12 various adult hot pepper plants in 3-5 gallon pots indoors. I also have qty 48 - 5.5" x 6" deep square pots indoors. House temp is around 22c or above daily. Humidity is around 40%-50%. Soil NEVER dries out. I mean I have left it unwatered for a MONTH and the soil was still drenched to the touch and smelled like rot. With the extrememly damp conditions, and likely the soil was contaminated, I ended up with a bad fungus gnat infestation. This never used to be a problem using other soils. Also, just about all pots are slowly growing a layer of white mould on top. To combat this I ended up purchasing several large bags of pearlite and mixing it into the soil. Hopefully it will allow it to drain somewhat.
This was a very expensive lesson to not use this product. I purchased 4 of the 28.3L Bags from Rona. Next step if the perlite does not help with drainage, and somehow help with the fungus gnats (attracted to rotting wet things) I will be replacing it with a better quality soil.
I have also used this soil outdoors in 5+ gallon pots and it still holds a crazy amount of water. I can guarantee it does not protect from overwatering. It actually causes overwatering by never drying out.
