Well well, here we go, long entry ahead... Germination time begins. I have some new ideas I am rolling out this year, especially in competing in the 'Old Seed' Contest. Those older seeds can be stubborn. So without further ado, these is the steps in trial one, 'The Olds 1'. First I mixed up my starting soil media (pic 1) I use the Light Warrior soil for my base, add the Pumpkin pro and the Azos (probably overkill) then in the water I use to moisten the soil media, the rooting hormone, calcarb and hydroguard. I removed the Captan from this mix this year. Just didn't see it being helpful and probably was hurting some of the beneficials I was trying to add to the mix. I am still treating the seed, but not the soil now.
