A question from a fellow grower:
First of all I wanted to say thanks for providing amazing quality fast growing seedlings. In 2 days it was ready to put into potting mix as they started germinating in my cup asap. I use well water and I am not sure if it loves the nutrients or not but it is ‘hard water’. PH is pretty neutral though.
I am noticing so many different opinions on NPK levels and when to use them. I’m also finding it hard to determine which fert to use.The problem is I heard that MG fertilizers are bad because they leave a chemical taste. I am starting from indoors and moving to outdoors potentially on a secluded balcony and want to know when to migrate this little lady to the outdoors.
The plant has started growing its jagged leaves but I am using a half filled red solo cup as a pot, and some potting mix to start her off. When do I migrate this thing to a bigger pot if I can’t see the root system? Is there an easier way to see by number of leaves?
Lastly I have some fish fert 5-1-1 like you mentioned in your guide but I was also reading that they might contain levels of mercury that could be harmful for your body. I wouldn’t want to do anything. This is my first attempt at anything like this so any advice would be beneficial.
