From the ingredients you list it is peat and peat substitutes with fertilizer added. So for MM it would replace the peat part.

Sounds like it IS a potting mix. You could always add compost, now or later. The bag states the mix will be out of nutrients in 3 months.

There are certain pursuits which, if not wholly poetic and true, do at least suggest a nobler and finer relation to nature than we know. The keeping of bees, for instance. ~ Henry David Thoreau
