Are these vacuum sealed and air tight to compress the soil? 

Asked by: FishGarden
Hello FishGarden, PRO-MIX BX MYCORRHIZAE As for compressed bales they are not vacuumed sealed, the ratio of peat in the mix allows us to compress the peat under pressure at various ratios depending on the formulation BX - general purpose PRO‑MIX BX is the solution for growers seeking to benefit from perlite's drainage and aeration capabilities. Combined with high-quality fibrous peat moss, this formulation is ideal for growers looking for a general purpose medium which creates a well-balanced growing environment. https://www.pthorticulture.com/en/products/pro-mix-bx-mycorrhizae/#tab:product-specification

How much % is Vermiculite in this.

Asked by: Kamb
Thank you for your question Kamb, but unfortunately the actual percentages of all ingredients are considered proprietary and therefore not something that we will disclose.

Does this product contain compost or bark? I'm seeking a product WITHOUT both, to reduce my gnat possibility

Asked by: Kmaryt

does this have a fungicide for damping off?

Asked by: - Lillie

Hi there, sounds like this product has good water retention, but does it also have just as good drainage? Plants I will use this for like moisture but do not like wet roots.

Asked by: kns1965

Hello, what actual percentage of the BX Myco mix is perlite and vermiculite, please? Are they balanced, in terms equal in proportion? Thanks.

Asked by: KDMR

Is this material flammable if I use soil heating cables within it in a propagation bed? The soil would be misted regularly through the day but obviously not overnight ... What if I mix it 50/50 sand in with it?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product Great quality product, perfect for starting seeds Unfortunately, like everything else, price has increased significantly in past year

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pro-Mix BX best growing Medium there is. Promix BX - I have tried others. No potting mix can compare to Pro-Mix BX. Used it for many years. Particularly good for starting seeds, and growing out any vegetable, plant, perennial or flowering annuals. Worth it to buy this 3.8 cu ft compressed bail. If you don't use it all it keeps well for the next season. People comment on how great my potted starts are doing. Won't be without it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Promix BX I have used this to grow Microgreens and it is awesome, main benefit is it reduces mold and fungus problems entirely compared to regular potting soil.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent potting soil I bought this after working at a greenhouse. They used it exclusively for all their plants. I have used it myself for 3 seasons with amazing results. This year I also helped my Dad and he said the results are better than any he's had before. Everything grows really well. There's never any bugs or fungus. The mix is perfectly balanced for most typical planting purposes. It doesn't compact and holds moisture well. I was glad to be able to get it from Rona although I wish the online ordering pickup system was better so I wouldn't have had to wait 45 minutes for 4 items and then load myself. I also had to go in the store twice... So much for COVID safety!
Date published: 2021-04-24
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent grow medium I have placed 3 orders online for store pickup, and all have been cancelled, saying item unavailable. I can't fault the product, because I have used it and it is excellent for starting seedlings and in soil blocks. Too bad RONA has issues with its online inventory system that they either can't solve or just don't care to do so.

Date published: 2021-02-22
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great growing mix This potting mix is not widely available, but its features are extremely valuable, especially its good pH for indoor plants, and it doesn’t have fertilizer added, so I can use my regular fertilizer routine for anything planted in this. I am an avid African Violet fanatic, so this is essential to making my “secret soil” with 1/3 each of this mix, as well as perlite and vermiculite.
