Sure, Mr. Stacky systems work very well with any regular seedlings purchased from your local nursery or hardware store, but for those who are a bit more serious about their gardening, you may find that growing from seed is the best and most cost effective method.
Firstly, it’s waaaaayyyy cheaper. For commercially minded growers, this is one of the many keys to success.
Secondly, it’s great for the more uncommon crops that you can’t normally find in seedling but are readily available in seed form.
Good news is that planting seeds for vertical toward gardens is very simple and cheap. There is no need for rockwool or other expensive media or equipment. Just follow the steps outlined below.
6. Keep sheltered inside for the first few days until you see the seedlings emerging. Water just enough to keep cocopeat slightly moist, but never let it dry out. With the coco peat so porous, it’s better to be slightly more wet than dry, so keep that in mind.
7. After this stage, full sunlight is the go!
8. A few days after the seedlings emerge, and the first true leaves appear, use some hydroponic nutrient water, heavily diluted. This will really make them take off!
Sufficient sunlight is required to prevent leggy seedlings. (ie. where the stem is too long…)
