But no, I was wrong. I planted into it and after a short while I was running into issues. Know as Synthetic Death. It can happen when you mix synthetic and organic nutrients. My plants where clawing like crazy and were showing several other overfertilization/lockout issues.
I managed to pull the plants through. But the soil was pure crap also. After a few weeks it turned into this compact block which took forever to take water in...
I won't be doing that again.
Dude said he experienced same problem, a lock out
My friend used shitty time release fertilised soil for seedling
, and proper organic soil for veg growth . 2 got mixed up - organic soil + cheap nute from seedling pot, I hope the shitty time release nute have finished cycle .
We checked today and the plant hasn't changed, it didn't get better but it didn't get worse too. Fingers crossed plant will recover.
