Questions & Answers

IMPOSSIBLE TO WET

I filled 5 inch peat pots with this stuff and put them in containers filled with water AND watered from the top - after 2 days of soaking the mix in the center of the pots is still bone dry. The mix will not wick up the water, how do you get this stuff wet???
Asked by: Charles
Pour it into a bucket and soak it with water before adding to the pots.

If I mix the seedling starter mix with some potting soil will that remove the need to repot my plants once germinated?

I read that if you keep your plants in the mix too long it will die,so its better to repot the flower.
Asked by: Lori
No. And the potting soil may kill the seedlings. Damping off. . .go look it up.

Seed Starting 8 qt. Potting Soil Mix is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 79.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product! I have never claimed to be a smart man, so before I attempt to do anything myself I research any available resources until I feel that I fully understand the task. There is a step-by-step tutorial on Organic Gardening's page that I found particularly useful. After purchasing the potting mix, I split three bags (way too much for what I needed in hindsight) between two 5-gallon buckets. In total, I added 24 cups of warm water to each bucket (8 cups at a time) and mixed by hand until the potting mix had a good, mud-pie consistency. I then let the product sit overnight to fully saturate. The following morning I filled three 72-cell trays with the potting mix and then added seeds per the manufacturer's instructions, being sure to segregate between trays by germination time (this was on Sunday). Well, today is Wednesday and I woke up to my fastest germinating tray with 11 sprouts in it. I didn't plan on constructing my grow lights/shelves set-up until a few days from now, but I don't mind being rushed in this case. Needless to say, I am pleased with this product.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Grow plants, own a gnat farm! I try not to turn my nose to products just because of company size and corporate reputation so I've used miracle grow products for quite a few years. I started over 300 plants with the product this year and within weeks I was completely infested with gnats and their harmful larvae. These starts were in isolation with no other plants, soils etc in the area. I'm now trying to save my financial and time investment fighting this problem. I don't recommend this product unless you want to follow it up with even more expense in finding solutions to the problems it presents. It is so odd that you ask gender on a product review.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of the best things I have ever bought! I have tried to make my own seed starting mixes, several different ones such as 100% coconut coir, or 1/3 coir +1/3 compost + 1/3 potting mix, as well as some other brands of potting or container or raised bed prebagged mixes. Either way, I'm just not getting the seeds to sprout at all. I have them under grow lights, only 2 inches off the seed cells, but still nothing. I even put some outside in the strong warm sunshine (I'm in AZ) and I still got nothing. I've watered from the top, bottom and even tried those humidity domes. I finally started using my electric blanket that was still working just fine. I finally was able to have maybe less than half of the seed cells sprout, but they didn't look so great. So, I switched to using ONLY this stuff, and voila'!!!! Everything is coming up now! So, I'm sold, totally. I will continue to make sure the whenever I need to start a new batch of seeds, I will ONLY use this stuff from now on in!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Mold and dead plants We bought this potting soil for our container garden. We usually use the Miracle Grow moisture control but wanted to give this a try. We started all of our seeds in coir pellets and they were growing strong until we transplanted into our usual containers using this potting mix. Each and every plant has died. Trying to maintain moisture in this soil is impossible and daily watering led to mold on indoor sprouts. We will not be using the rest of the bag, such a disappointment that we now have to restart our garden.

Her seedlings just do great using it. She starts the seedlings under a grow light then after all the snow melts they are transferred to the garden. Their survival rate far performs other brands of potting soils.
