It is not just about following the tradition but also trying new techniques. Simply experimenting 😊.
I did the same with my potting mix for growing seeds and was overwhelmed with the success.
Normally I used: coco peat, soil and mixed little or no vermiculite but this time I did something different 😊:
Have a bag filled with normal potting mix that consist of coco peat, soil and a small portion of vermiculite…oops forgot to mention and all used and reused soil too 😁…
So for experimentation with my seedling potting mix, I did the below:
Starting from bottom layer:
1. Portion of normal potting mix (from the bag I have made).
2. Portion of washed sand.
3. Placed seeds (Used local seeds. Not branded 😂).
4. Sprinkle of washed sand.
5. Portion of red soil.
6. Sprayed water.
See the progress.
Seeds sown in one single pot: Lady Finger, French Bean and Cabbage. Oops I dropped an extra Cabbage seed too close to French Bean seed 😝… Actually the French Bean seed growth seems too good to occupy more space ☺️… No worries, all is well.
