Gorillakev have you had any issues using the green bag?

Since i already have the green bag and its OK then I'll just stick to that.

if capped properly and planted properly, most potting soil/mix work.. organic or not ^__^
but since many people tend to plant too little or with the wrong plants or stir up the substrate... the orange bag is the safest.

No issues at all I sifted all of the twigs and bigger stuff out. Use it, try it out and stock your tank full of plants.
