    re: Train Wreck newbie

    Hi guys I'm new to growing
    I purchased some train wreck auto flowers
    I currently doing the germination following crop kings directions meticulously
    I am lost from that point on
    I purchased some 5 gallon pals to put them in and some pro mix organic potting soil
    I've been told not to use that when I first plant the seed
    But I've also been told auto flowers don't like to be moved
    Can I just use 1 type of soil from the beginning

    Any help would be great thanks guys

    I'm no expert but I don't really think the soil would harm your plants. However if you buy some potting soil and mix it with your pro mix you should be alright

    This is a weird subject I wish someone would end the myth or tell us straight what we should do for beginning phases. But I have grown twice planting directly in soul of pre mixed pro mix hp blend and I didn't control ph in soil from seed to finish it was 7+ whole grow. Now just test it your self putting g in jiffy cup or red solo straight soil no fertilizer in it. However if you use pretty mix port mix soil from seed make sure ph is 6-6.5 so many people pros say to plant in same pot start to finish so that's what I do my feminized white cookies seed from crop king seeds will be different story.

    For autos I start them on a very small pot, the mini germination pots. As soon as I see she is stable, and has enough rooting I move her in to the 3 gallon pots.

    I don't see how this could harm the plants growth.

    Organic veggi mix or the premium potting mix.

    Note that both of these have time release certs. Most likely higher on the nitrogen side. I have had no need to add nitrogen to my grow. I have added bloom ferts.

    re: Train Wreck newbie

    So do you use that organic straight from the beginning or no use plain first

    I use organic right from the start, sometimes the potting one right away as well. It's a weed not a rose. I keep it simple. The only thing I do is top and LST. As for nutrition, I don't get fancy.
