Q.Potting Soil Texture for Poinsettias

Anonymous added on April 26, 2011 | Answered

I found a cactus preparation potting soil by Miracle-Gro at Walmart which would allow a fast flush and adequate drainage of water. Is this an appropriate soil selection in which to pot poinsettias?

I would mix it 50/50 with regular potting soil. It is just a bit too free draining for poinsettia.
