StG is supposed to be pH-neutral so no pre-prep needed before using.

I've never used it. Thought about it.

Not a fan of rockwool, and the associated pH hassles; worth a try - YOU can be a pioneer on 420Mag!

Nah. It'd have to provide more benefit (to me) than I perceive to be likely. If I still suffered RW it'd be different. But a pinch of perlite and vermiculite works a charm and a quick dip and rinse afterwards and the roots are pristine.

Still got friends that use RW starter cubes, so I'm interested - just not interested to break down and spend a buck, lol.

If they cured insomnia, I'd be on 'em for sure.

I'm not a big fan of plastics. I realize that I think this thought as I type the words on plastic keys, lol, and that a LARGE part of the materials in our lives are at least partially made up of plastic. And this is a recycled - or at least recyclable - product, which is a favorable aspect.

But I'd be a lot more inclined to use it if it were made of cannabis (hemp) or some kind of plant-derived cellulose instead of a petrochemical product.

They also don't recommend reusing their product multiple times. (I have no idea whether or not it can be reused; I just read it in their faq.)

compared to rock wool?

Uh, I have no idea what you're asking here.

It sounds like some sort of riddle. One that even stoners wouldn't get. LOL

So I did a little online search and found out more about the grow cubes. It doesn't look like it's going to be anything more helpful, IMHO.

I mean, it also talks about being great for growing things in the garden, and I dont' know if that's goign to help MJ too. I'm a skeptic by nature though, so I'm not sure what to believe.

I would focus on what works for yoru plants, not on what these boards necessarily tell you. I mean, everyone's got an a--hole, just like everyone has an opinion. LOL

Do what works. That's the best advice.

The member was wondering how Sure to Grow products compare to rockwool (if you're from somewhere other than the USA, it might have a different product name; I believe I might have read it referred to as stonewool in Great Britian.).

I have seen others have good results with the STG hail. I have never used the hail but I have used the starter cubes. STAY AWAY! For whatever reason they do not work well with seedlings. Perhaps the weave of the material is too tight, I have no idea, but the seedling roots do not thrive in the STG starter cubes. For more information you can search for a Caramelicious thread under my handle or the first journal done recently by Mr. Krip
