Glee All-Purpose Potting Mix

Seeing is believing!

Glee All-Purpose Potting Mix consistently outperforms standard potting mixes in greenhouse trials across a variety of plants and crops.


We’ve got answers.

Glee potting mix is a proprietary blend of Canadian Sphagnum peat moss, HydraFiber®, limestone, gypsum, a wetting agent, and fertilizer.

Gone! Those little white pieces are called perlite, a mined volcanic rock traditionally used to add air space to potting mixes. The problem with perlite is that it’s often sourced from faraway places, making it pricey. So, most potting soil companies will cut costs by greatly reducing the amount of perlite down to 5%, which is enough to show that the potting mix has perlite in it, but not enough to add good airspace to the mix – so it’s there, but it’s not doing anything. Other potting soils shifted to using pine bark to add airspace because it is cheap and does a good job aerating the mix, but it’s also why most potting soils are so heavy. HydraFiber® aerates the soil better than perlite or bark without sacrificing water-holding capacity, and it weighs 90% less than bark. That’s what we call a win-win-win.

Yes, in several ways. Plants growing in Glee potting mix can be watered less than most traditional potting mixes, which helps retain nutrients better and helps conserve water. Also, Life Cycle Analyses have shown that HydraFiber® can be produced and shipped with a considerably lower CO2 footprint than other raw materials. Win!

Yes, it works great for both! Glee potting mix was designed to have excellent performance for indoor and outdoor plants.

Essentially, yes. Because Glee potting mix is lighter in weight and fluffier than other potting mixes, it might require a little more firmness when potting up your plants than you’re used to. Also, the HydraFiber® Technology will “surface dry” quicker than other potting mixes, which means that while the upper ½” may look dry, the water is being held beneath the surface where the roots can actually use it. So, before you water, it is important to stick your finger 2″ below the surface to determine if it is wet or dry. 


Absolutely. Glee potting mix can be used as a stand-alone mix to fill raised beds to grow your favorite flowers, herbs, fruits, and veggies. It is most often used in flower pots, hanging baskets, and raised beds, but Glee potting mix can be used just about anywhere and for anything you plant!

Glee potting mix comes packaged as a highly-compressed material, which is why it’s in a small and lightweight bag. It expands to 2.5x its size, though, so the 0.4 cubic foot bag will actually yield 1.1 cubic feet of potting mix – matching other similar mixes in the market. One bag of Glee potting mix is enough to fill 25 quarts! 

We made a chart to help with this: 

Glee potting mix should be stored in a cool, dry location, and you should avoid adding water to it until you’re ready to use it. Glee potting mix contains fertilizers that release over time, so keeping it dry and cool will protect the fertilizer and keep it from releasing too soon.


Yes, you can, but there are some things you should do when you use it. First, Glee potting mix contains something called a wetting agent, which is like a soap that helps the product wet up easily. These wetting agents break down over time because of microbes naturally found in the potting soil, so over time, they won’t work as well. If the mix feels excessively dry and dusty, we recommend adding some water to the mix in a bucket or container and mixing it in by hand. After mixing, let it sit 24 hours prior to use – this will naturally rehydrate the mix and help it be ready to use. 

Second, the fertilizer in Glee potting mix is coated so it can feed your plants for up to 6 months. These fertilizers naturally release even when no plants are growing in the mix/bag because of elements like water and heat. When bags of Glee potting mix are stored for a very long time, the fertilizer can build up in the mix and make it too salty for plant roots. So, if it’s been stored for a long time, we recommend that you leach the mix with plain water before you plant with it. To do this, fill the pot you’re going to plant in with Glee potting mix and simply run tap water through it. Let the water run through the mix and out through the bottom for 30-60 seconds, depending on how large the pot is, and then let the pot drain for several hours before planting. Leaching the fertilizer like this helps the long-stored mix get ready to plant, but it will reduce the fertilizer available to the plant, so using a liquid fertilizer may be beneficial depending on how long it is stored.
