Fertilizing seedlings in soilless mix?
I placed a similar post in the Organic forum.
If organic fertilizer needs to be broken down by the microorganisms in the soil before it can be taken up by the plants, Why is it that everyone here is using it on seedlings in soilless mixes ?
I have started using a diluted solution of fish fert on my seedling, as is recommended by many people in this forum. However, I have been reading over in the container gardening forum where the posts have convinced me that a chemical fert makes more sense until I get them in the ground.
It seems the "bad" in chemical fert is mostly what it does to the soil, not what it does to the plants.
Any comments, or explanations from the experienced people here?
