Here in a couole weeks I'm going to pop some more seedlings,I bought 2 3.Cu Ft bags of Fox Farm Ocean Forrest and a bag of HP pro mix mycorrhizae,I'm wondering if I should add seedlings to 50/50 mix or only pro mix and I have liquid nutes I could add,i just don't want to burn them,or would it be better to just use ground soil

A 50/50 mix of Ocean Forest and HP Pro should be perfect for seedlings. Maybe add a lil perlite too.

How long would it take to run out of nutrients you think?Does FFOF have much nitrogen?When should I use liquid fertilizers?

Yes, FFOF has Nitrogen. You can use a 50/50 mix without any liquid fertilizer for the first 2 weeks. Put them in solo cups. After about 10-14 days you will transplant them into a bigger container. I would use FFOF with perlite.

You can use FFOF for up to 4 weeks without liquid ferts once they are in final containers. So you basically don't need any fertilizer until they are on 12/12 light cycle, if you are growing them indoors.

If outdoors, it really depends on how big the containers are. Maybe use a dry fertilizer that you apply once every 6-8 weeks. That would be very simple, almost impossible to mess up.

Alright sweet,I've got peat moss discs to put seedlings in for a couple weeks with a humidity dome,then when they outgrow that hopefully I timed it right so it's warm enough to put outside

That sounds good, since they are going outdoors, try to keep the light cycle similar to what it will be like outdoors in the summer. Good luck!

That's the thing, I don't have a light so the ones I just popped are getting stretchy because they need more light,last year around april-may I popped my seeds and they got enough light so I just need to wait a bit

You can use an LED from walmart that cost like $9. Get one with a color temp of 5000-6500K. An 18 inch light will have about 950 lumens. Those work very good for the first week or 2 of growth.
