Hi all - In the past, for no good reason, I've sort of thought that potting soil was potting soil and any differences among the commercial products would be small. Was I ever wrong! This year I started some early chiles in plastic pots, some in K-Mart potting soil and some in soilless potting soil from Peaceful Valley Farm Supply which I had bought to use with their speedling trays (trays with pyramidal, open bottom cells). Well I forgot that I had used two different soils but noticed that some plants were growing great and others much, much more slowly. I didn't pay much attention until the difference between like types of chiles was extreme. The bottom line....the soilless potting soil worked way better. Fortunately, our main crop of chiles in speedling trays with the right potting soil and the good seeds from Tough Love Chile Co. is doing great!
