Pro-Organic Mix is ready to use directly from the bag. Containers can be filled and then watered in after seeding or planting. The addition of a natural plant-based surfactant ensures uniform and convenient initial wetting. As with any mix, over-watering or excessive drying will negatively affect the physical properties of the mix.
Fill desired containers and lightly tamp down any large pockets of air before planting seeds, transplants or cuttings. Do not compress mix too firmly. Initial plant development will occur without additional fertilization. After plants are established, Pro-Organic Mix should be supplemented with an organic fertilizer at regularly scheduled feeding intervals.
