I am going to start a new auto grow.. have used different soils, kind soil, ff and roots organic. I have ff trio on hand - is it a big mistake to use the trio with an organic soil? Or what adjustments do I need to make to use FF nutes with roots organic ? will use ph tap water for this grow thanks

It will kill all the microbiota in your soil. So any benefits they offer would be gone.
Best get everything you can from the soil before you start using chem ferts.

It can be done. Safely too. You just get none of the "organic benefits"

Ok thinking this next grow will be organic seedlings in organic potting soil with a base of roots organic.. has anyone have experience with biobuzz organic nutes... Also I have some roots organic and kind soil was thinking about mixing for a organic grow with biobuzz as nutrients. Tx

It is a myth that salt based fertilizer kills off the micro life. Overfeeding the medium may.

Personally I use botanicare pure blend pro grow. A natural based but fully soluble fertilizer.

Pure organic liquid or powder fertilizer works well too but requires a bit of planning so it has time to break down.

So folks I germinate using the paper towel method.. very high success rate .. after you have a tap root and put in soil does the plant need light to sprout..? Will light hurt at this point?

Once your sprout is planted, it needs light yes. But not too much light. Your light fixture manufacturer should have suggested a height for seedlings. If not, a simple light meter app can tell you. Just search the app store for a free light meter. The sensor on your phone measures in LUX. You are looking for 2000 to 3000 lux until your first true leaves come in. Then you can slowly move it closer.

Smallish is normal for most autos.

I would start with a slurry test. Let the plant sit in its runoff for 5 or 10 minutes. Collect the runoff and do a TDS/PPM test. Get a baseline of what is still in there.

Then mix your nutrients accordingly. 👍

With organic nutes uptake from soil not directly from the nutriants so maybe a soil test would be a good idea?
