All Organic EarthBox?
« on: July 19, 2022, 11:33:24 am »
I am new to the Earthbox environment and setting up 2 EBs for a 100% organic* grow.
Anyone here doing an organic EB?

I've used EB Stone 5-5-5 (organic) with good success.  However, I tried synthetic with 5-10-10 or 10-10-10 and found for some plants, like broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, corn, eggplant and some others, I get healthier looking, bigger plants and bigger harvest.  Seems like lettuce, and other smaller plants do better with the organic.  For tomatoes, I haven't seen much difference.
