Not for sansevieria, for example:

> Soil for Snake Plants
Snake plants do best with a free-draining soil mix, because they are easily prone to rot. A soilless potting mixture is best to ensure adequate drainage. Also be sure to use a terracotta pot that won’t trap water inside and promptly remove any standing water from the saucer.

And that's the crazy thing. The seller used snake plants for the photos on the product page! 🤯 So I thought, maybe I'm missing something. Maybe it's okay for all types of plants. 🤷

@evelyn That could work but your mileage may vary depending on multiple factors such as your environment (temperature, humidity, etc), the soil mix and the wicking material

So I guess I may have a few more dead plants before I figure it out. 😅
