Seed Starting Mix Round 3
Last year I did some experiments with seed starting mix and found that not all starting mediums are equal. This year I tried round 3 of the testing with thee different mediums. I had read how a lot of people liked Fox Farm's Light Warrior soiless medium. I am a big fan of Fox Farm's products so I decided to give it a try. I did three plantings for this test. One with Ligth Warrior, one with Light Warrior plus 20% earthworm castings added in and one with Jiffy Mix soiless mix. After 4 days the Light Warrior with earthworm castings plant came up. After 6 days the Light Warrior plant came up and after 7 days the Jiffy Mix plant came up. In the picture to the right the plant with the earthworm castings is the biggest one, the 2nd biggest is the Light Warrior plant and the smallest plant is the Jiffy Mix plant.
