I am having an issue with my recently purchased GG seeds. I have lost 4, they sprout then die off. I am using foxfarm oceans organic soil in small seedling flower plants. Anyone else have this problem? TY, for Help! K
Usually problems with sprouts is due to over watering.
FFOF soil is not really recommended for seedlings, the soil is very hot which means it’s charged with nutes to last the first 4 to 5 weeks of the plants life. Try using a seedling soil that contains no nutes.
TY I will try those suggestions! Glad I bought 20! I have never had an issue with FFOF before this, maybe its just the strain???
Some plants are just more sensitive to the nutes. A lot of people have problems with Foxfarm soil.
@raustin I agree with you. As good as FFOF is, it does have its draw backs. Think about using the nectar line next grow.
Try using cloning pods to get them started, like root riot, and a ‘lighter’ soil like Happy Frog for an interim soil between the baby roots and the FFOF.
Any seed starter soil will work you want something with no nutrients
I just posted some pic’s of my 10 / GG4 seedlings , they are doing awesome. soak for 24 hrs in spring water, put in paper towel w/ spring water for 48 hrs, then mix 50% vermiculite and 50% miracle grow seed starter and gently put in soil with seed cap no more then 1/4" deep. I put mine directly under 300 watt LED
