Question

Transplanting with this soil

After my seeds have reached a full growth in my original starting pot, is it safe to transplant my plants into a different kind of soil in my bigger pot, or is it recommened to stay with this soil during the whole process? thanks

You don't have to keep the new plants in the Miracle-Gro Seed Starter. If the plants are being transplanted into another container, use a potting mix such as the MiracleGro Seed Starter or Miracle-Gro Potting Mix. If the plants are being transplanted in the ground then Miracle-Gro Garden Soil should be used.

Question

Is this product only useful for seed growth? I'm wondering once the seeds sprout if I can continue to use this soil.

yes, you can certainly continue using MIRACLE-GRO Seed Starting potting mix once the plant is growing.

As the name states, this product is best for germinating seeds, but it is formulated to support the plant during it's early stages. Once the plant begins to outgrow its initial container, it is best to transplant it (along with the Seed Starter soil around its root ball) into a larger container filled with a quality potting mix, or into the ground into a bed of Garden Soil mixed 50/50 with the native ground soil.

As with any transplant, to encourage strong roots and avoid transplant shock, it is wise to water it initially with a transplant solution, such as MIRACLE-GRO Quick Start.
