    Watering germinated seeds question.

    I'm back for my 3rd grow season, all! I got my seeds germinated and planted in organic soil. Do you just give the soil simple water or do you mix in some nutrients? Last season I switched from Fox Farms to General Hydroponics for cost reasons. Should I mix some of my GH nuts w/ my distilled water before and after my seeds sprout?
    Thanks for reading.

    I wouldn't offer my seedlings any nutes. After they have sprouted, then only half strength at most. And why are you using distilled water?

    This is what Ed says about distilled water - "The pH of pure distilled water is very unstable and has no buffering ability. The addition of a tiny amount of an acid makes it very acidic and a small amount of a base makes it alkaline."

    In other words - distilled water is difficult to pH properly.

      I had all sorts of issues using distilled water, problems went away once I started using tap water PH’d to 6.5(soil).

        I switch to my well water after a while. Should I use it from the get-go? The well water is hard, though.
