When I re-potted my aloe, I accidentaly mixed a lot of soil together...2 different kinds/brands, different colors, etc. One soil was sandy-type, and fairly old. The other soil was the miricle-grow cactus soil stuff, which was "fresh out of the package". Should this be all right, or should I just re-pot it again?

(If I re-pot it, it will be done with the miricle-grow cactus soil)

Thanks!

It should be fine, I mix alot of different one's together when planting or potting up things, esp if I have only a small amount of something that I want to use up...Just make sure that the soil you use drains well and you should be fine.

I'm with Comfrey- it should be fine as long as it drains well!! [thumb]

Pssst! Don't tell anyone, but some of my cacti/succulents are in regular potting soil altogether- I just water very carefully! [thumb]
