For some reason, I wanted my first grow to be a soilless one. After reading for hours and hours, I thought I chose correctly. Now everything seems to be falling apart. From yellowing tips, faint yellowing, dark green color, browning of the edges, warped leaves, upturned leaves. Then again, this is my first grow and I may be completely over analyzing things. (As I do with all things in life) I had purchased four different ingredients for my mixture. Perlite, Vermiculite, Sphagnum Peat Moss, and Worm Castings. With these four ingredients, I made four different mixtures.
I planted 6 germed seeds with an assortment of the four mixtures.Mixture One – 1 Part Worm Castings, 1 Part Vermiculite, 1 Part Perlite, 1 Part Sphagnum Peat Moss.
Mixture Two – 1 Part Worm Castings, 1 Part Sphagnum Peat Moss, 2 Part Vermiculite, 2 Part Perlite
Mixture three – 1 Part Worm Castings, 1 Part Perlite, 2 Part Vermiculite
Mixture Four – 4 Part Worm Castings, 1 Part Perlite, 1 Part Vermiculite, 1 Part Sphagnum Peat Moss
Plant 1 - Mixture 4
Plant 2 - Mixture 2 Close up
Plant 3 - Mixture 1
