One more time

I know this has been discussed before, but every year at this time I do a search and have trouble finding satisfactory answers. My question is this: For vegetable seedlings that have just sprouted in a tray in a sterile non-soil growing medium, do they need any nutrient supplementation before the time of potting-up? and what would you use?

RE: One more time

Here is the FAQ on this question. It should provide the information you need as to when - only after transplanting which is normally after 1 set of true leaves develop.

As to what? That is your choice. Just make sure it is well diluted. Never use full strength on seedlings.
