Wonder Soil’s Cactus & Succulent Soil Mix

No matter your level of succulent growing ability, whether you’re growing from seed, offset, or repotting young or established succulents, this is a great succulent soil mix. In fact, it’s Wonder Soil! This all-natural soil mix has been scientifically developed and is crammed full of nutrients that are tried and tested to enhance succulent growth, encourage strong roots as well as boosting aeration of the soil.

Here at Yard and Garden, we found it advantageous to place the mix in the pot first, add water, watch it expand, and then plant your rootings or succulent plants. Yes, you heard us right, watch it expand. The ‘expanding soil’ is all down to the addition of coconut coir which is best known for its ability to retain water, provide excellent aeration, and improve drainage.

This is another super mix containing Coir, Magnesium, Gypsum, Pumice, Rock Minerals (Grit), Humus, Worm Castings, and a few other great additions. The only reason this doesn’t make the winning podium is that given the choice I would take the product with perlite, just a personal preference. As always I would add some further gravel or a more coarse grit if it’s to hand.

Customer reviews: It’s a relatively low-cost option because a little goes a long way and it’s also suitable for growing other plants that need well-draining soil and aeration such as fiddle leaf fig. Just make sure you have the right climate for growing succulents and that you water your plants as and when needed.

Excellent Potting Soil

Wonder Soil is great! It's clean, my plants love it and expands as it claims! It's my preferred choice.

easy to use and store

Wonder Soil is a very good potting medium.


I applied one combo pack to a system of rat burrows over 100 sq feet. That night, we watched a few escapees return to try to get back in... with no luck. We've been fighting this for months with poison and traps with little success. I'm optimistic we turned a corner now that there's no where for them to live. And it's way cheaper than an exterminator!

Premium Organic Coco Coir Cube

If only it weren’t so expensive....

This doesn’t go anywhere near as far as I was hoping it would and thus it is VERY expensive. It does seem to work though. I had a small hole near a gate that I tested on. It took about a half a canister plus two plugs to fill but the squirrels didn’t dig it back up the next day. So the only problem is that I have major caverns to fill throughout my yard and I will probably need a prohibitive amount of tunnel fill to do it.
