Did you start it from seed in that soil??

@PurpNGold74 the back of the bag is completely white. And @Mrcrabs yes I did. I specifically asked the lady at the grow store. She said it was fine to use with seeds. I’m assuming it was NOT meant for seeds and that was not heat stress?

Yea super soils tend to be a tad too hot for seedlings. Ud much rather start em in starter soil or even regular topsoil with perlite and mykos amended.

Fox Farms Happy Frog is my goto for starting seeds now. Pretty easy to find and full of goodies

Remember not all strains react the same way… but I rather much start them off in a seed starting soil without or a low NpK ratio… like @PurpNGold74 mentioned… the reason for this is that the cotyledons are the embryonic part of a seed which stores fuel for further growth…

when they start to die off you can add a little bit of fertilizer or have your pots layered so they start tapping into the nutes… good luck my friend

I messaged the company . They said it’s 2-3-1.

Looks very promising. Thank you for sharing!

2-3-1? Thats not very super of them… maybe thats after they break it down to the lowest common denominator.

If you have a tds pen, check the ppms of ur runoff. Or try a slurry test. Cup of distilled (bottle) water. Scoop of dirt (not important just get enough). Mix em thoroughly, let sit a few hours. Check the ppms.

@PurpNGold74 it was 5175. I checked some runoff

Holy motherloving mackerel. Yup she be a supersoil indeed. Love those numbers. Miss my boys @Haildamaged @DoobieNoobie

Man alive that is too hot for seedlings :joy: she’s burning up root wise. Go get some cheap soil, add perlite. Start seedlings in a cup in that, then repot that cup into a pot of that after she has her legs down and needs a meal.

@PurpNGold74 lol I will for sure next grow. I’ll chalk this up to a learning experience. I’m disappointed that I got bad advice from my local grow shop. The other 3 seem to be doing fine.

Also… just to play devils advocate. Living and organic soils can show skyhigh ppms and not burn plants just like the other 3 are showing. Not an exact science from me man. But yea. Id much prefer to start seedlings in a more inert soil.
