i had 2 potting mix....Sta-Green from Lowes & Black magic which i happen to get at Biglots for just 95cents!! So i thought i would plant seeds in both to see which is better.
I planted seeds in both the same day...same time.
after 3-4 days both mixes had seedling from all kind of seeds - petunia dwarf, petunia wave, lobelia.
I thought wow! the 95cent one is cheap and equally good. But now nearly 25 days later i see the difference..... Black magic mix seedlings are still tiny while Sta green potting mix are growing healthy with new leaves...no new leaves in the Black magic mix.
So i guess sta-green is better..... never will i go for cheaper mix/soil again.
Or is it.... the ones growing slowly will be healthier later?
