Howdy Nocto. This thread is about to get a third revision. I've discovered the use of plugs for seed starting and wanted to add what I have learned. My mix remains the same, but I've discovered that if you put your seed in a very moist root cube, then plant the cube in your starter mix, the sprout doesn't so much as budge when watering--very stable. The reason I did away with MGOC is experience. In my opinion the only nutrient suitable for tiny sprouts is EWC. They don't need any nutrition in the mix for the first few weeks, and for the next few weeks, the EWC handles it really well and also puts some biology in the mix. So now my mix is something like this: 40/30/30 Jiffy mix/EWC/vermiculite. Plant seed in very damp root cube and plant cube and unsprouted seed directly into your small pot--4 inch pots or bigger. Give this a try, ya'll. You'll love your result.
