Also, I seem to have conflicting reports from books/online. Some say that after the first root is double the seed length, I can place it directly into the medium I'm going to grow it in - is that correct? I've found other reports that say to place it in regular soil as a seedling and place it into the more fertile soil when it is nearing vegetative growth ? A clarification would be greatly appreciated ^^
So anyway, for my soil I've got one bag of each of these:
Miracle Grow Organic Blood Meal (12 : 0 : 0)
MG Organic Bone Meal (6 : 9 : 0) with 7% Calcium
High Potassium Bat Guano (1 : 10 : 1)
Organic Agriculture Lime (Ca/Mg/pH+)
Greensand (0 : 0 : 0.1)
Used up the first bag of soil I bought, but any suggestions on what to look for for the soil base would be helpful too.
I've been trying to pick up some worm castings from my hydro shop, but they haven't had them come in for a bit, so hopefully I'll be able to grab a hold of some of those as well.
I'm planning to do a 2-4 plant grow in a 2.5'x2.5'x5' box, as seen in my other thread:
Any help someone could give me for my soil mixture would be excellent, as well as when/how to fertilize if I need, although I was trying to make a "water-only" type of grow soil if at all possible.
P.S. Saw something about borax powder as a supplement - does this mean the white borax used to kill ants/roaches? And is this safe for the plants? Seems a little sketchy
