How long can you water seedlings with distilled water only ?
Is safe to wait until they show sign of light green(underfed) ?
That would be 2-3 weeks I guess.
Also is PH a concern when using only distilled water for first few weeks ?
I'm starting seeds in seedling mix to transfer to coco afterwards.
I did straight coco with ok'ish' results but my guess is it would be simpler in seedling mix just add water until they can take at least 400 ppm.
