Quick question

  1. Well, first off let me say hello to all on the board, making my first post here after lurking in the shadows for some time. Gotta big up to all on the quality of posts around here, plenty of reading to keep any enthusiast going for a long time!

    Anyway, straight to the point, ive tried searching, but to be totally sure im after details of a good soil npk mix for starting a grow? And, i know this is going to sound rather stupid, if not extremly, but after germination, what exactly are we looking at coming out of the seed? is that an upward shoot, or a plant root? :eek: something ive never really considered..

    Anyway, thanks in advance to you guys, all help is appriciated!
  2. To start, I'd get a soil that has no time release ferts because in the first few weeks of growth it doesn't need anything and you run the risk of killing it. Second, that white bit sticking out of the seed is a tap root, put that facing down in the dirt.
  3. excelent mate, thanks for the quick reply. when i go to pick up the soil, and reccomendations as to what i should be looking for? obviously im new to the art, kinda need as much help as i can get :( once i get going im hoping the journals will answer the rest of my forthcoming questions!

    thanks again
  4. I don't know where you're living, but I just dug up some dirt from the garden and mixed it half-and-half with some peat moss. The garden soil is pretty good stuff (if i do say so myself) having been built up over a couple of years of growing, and mulching, and having composted yard waste incorporated. If you're going to buy a bag of soil look around your garden center and pick up a bag of regular ol potting soil...WITHOUT fertilizer.

    Good luck
