Not sure what the temps were. I had a heating mat under them for a while but turned it off as I didn't think it was helping much. The house has no heating during the day while we are at work or when we are asleep so it probably averaged around the low 60s in the day and the high 60s to low 70s in the evening.
I did have peat moss in the mix. Did I forget to mention that?
The soil did not have to be cycled as it does not contain higher nitrogen sources like alfalfa and others. With just compost, ewc, peat and perlite no cycling is needed.
Uh, yeah, I wasn't thinking. Compost and EWC are kinda by definition already cycled.
Well, I got nothin'.
The only possible weak link I see would be the temps may be slightly on the low side for optimal growth.
It's also seems easier to over-water in cooler temps.
