We love all the beneficial microbes in this mix, which will make your seedlings & plants extra healthy.

WIGGLE WORM ORGANIC
CASTINGS – OMRI Listed

GrowJourney Note: Worm castings make an excellent amendment to any garden or seed starting mix. If you don’t have your own castings to add to the mix, we highly recommend you get these. They act like a ‘super humus’, an extremely fertile organic fertilizer properly conditioned for best root growth and most bio-available plant nutrition. These also make an awesome outdoor garden soil amendment or actively aerated compost tea (AACT).

GENERAL HYDROPONICS
COCO COIR – 5Kg

GrowJourney Note: If you’re making your own seed starting mix, you’ll need to use a sphagnum moss or coco coir in addition to organic materials (like worm castings & top soil), fertilizer, mycorrhizae and perlite/vermiculite (for aeration). Coco coir is more sustainable than sphagnum peat moss (what’s commonly used) since it comes from a waste product (coconut shells/husks). Rapidly expands and holds water once wetted. We’ve been using this brand for years.
