    Right now it's in miracle gro seed starting soil. And so far its doing great. I was thinking I should just keep it in this soil. Good idea or no?

    I find that it does not hold water very well and drys out to fast end up watering all the time instead of once a week

    That's true, but i don't really mind watering it a lot. But besides that do you think it's a good soil?

    ive used that before if i did again i would mix in some jiffy seed starter mix or some verm. i like to use the jiffy seed starter mix and perlite as my soil. i hear people talk bad about the jiffy mix saying that it isnt good but ive had great success with it.

    seed mix doesn't have alot of nutrients in it and as pointed out above dried out alot quicker than normal soil, You could grow in Seed mix but why not spend the little extra for some real soil and get better yields?

    i used the seed mix just to start and i thought it worked great. when it was time to transplant most of the seed mix just fell of the roots and the transplant was very easy. they took to the new soil very quickly. no signs of stress. not sure i would want to do the whole process in it though.

    That's the first good news about MG from soil farmers.
