Foxfarms Ocean Forest or Happy Frog
, or Roots Orgainic are perfect potting mixes for starting seed in? I never lose breeder seeds and always have 100% success using FFOP or FFHF potting mixes. There are a couple of tricks needed to follow, but I guarantee 100% success. You got to use RAINWATER ONLY!!!!!!
I take a bag of Fox farms Ocean Forest or Happy Frog
or Roots Organic and tumble it on the ground about 30 times to make sure the finer stuff gets mixed well.
Using a dixie cup with holes in the bottom I fill it up with loose soil and weigh it dry. Then water the cup completely and write both weights on top of the cup. Don’t pack the soil at all, let the water pack it.
Using a sharpened pencil, you plant the seed as deep as the end of the lead is from the paint color on the pencil. Maintain a 72f to 82f or 22c to 27c temperature range until sprouts.
Using the scales keep the cups at max wet weight for the first 48 hours then cut the water and put the cups under the lights on a 12/12 photoperiod and leave them alone. That’s it they always sprout every time. You don’t have to weigh every cup just one cup to get an idea of how much water you have. That's it, here are some plants from these cups.
