I didn't know my observation would cause a problem? But let me take it a bit further. HiloReign answered my question with his first reply. I know from first hand experience with FoxFarms tha yes, their soils tend to be "hot" more often than the average joe would like. In the future you are better off using either Fox Farm's 'Light Warrior', or better yet go to the "GArden Exchange", and ask for a bag of 'Doctor Soil' Root "Zone". Hands down it's the best starter soil on the market. I'm soooo in love with this stuff, it's simply amazing. Good thing about it,....cost. It runs about the same as a bag of 'Light Warrior', but this stuff has so much more, Aloe Extract, Microbeasties,and it has just the right amount of moisture in it to. My experience with 'Light Warrior' is it works, but that's about it.
