Yes, but so would fungus gnat larvae and anything else that might have gotten in there while it was sitting in storage. The good thing about turning my soil into a "bakedarea" is that now I have reset the soil back to zero, and then when I add the @DYNOMYCO, the soil activator and some @GeoFlora Nutrients, all of the best beneficials are right back in there, all new and fresh and ready to go. I didn't lose anything good by baking it... only lost the bad stuff. What is that called? a win-lose-win!Why sterilize it? Wouldn't some of the beneficials in their soils be good?
The only competition here is with myself, to have each grow be a little better than the last, a tribute to the accumulation of knowledge, experience and techniques.Well you have definitely showed your cards here and I see your going all in. It’s a good thing this isn’t a competition.
I am a disaster when it comes to seeds. My hands are unstable when it comes to anything small or just about anything these days. I stopped using solo cups and started using the small air pots because I have screwed up so many times trying to get the seedling out of the solo cup. The air pots are much harder to turn over also. When I got older things like balance and being clumsy set in.The seed. if started in the wrong position,can send the roots up and above the soil. This is called a j-root.
I like that idea! I might copy you on that. I was talking about this in my journal. I wish there was a standard on this topic to be honest. I get it though. That would be a tough thing to standardize with the many different grow styles.I am going to try out a new phase of my grows in this journal with an official seedling stage, where I will give the plants 1 week to establish themselves in the soil, before calling it Veg.
You and I can be the first, and someday the things that we do may indeed become the standard as people begin to realize that we have it going on.I like that idea! I might copy you on that.
