    It's probably just shock. It'll probably get over it. But, is the peat moss from Miracle-Gro (Or says it has fertilizer)? And is it 100% peat?

    It's not bad, but it'd be better if it had perlite, but I'd leave it for now.

    It's not that good, but half peat and half perlite mixed up is better, it provides better drainage and air. I used alot of peat in a pot, it starts to smell bad after a little while.
    The following statement is true.
