I read the posts when some of you were going to start using super Thrive, but hadn't seen any updates. Shrug!
Anyone still using it? Anyone try it on their semps? Any miracle stories?
Any improvements in the vegtable garden?

Of course I'm asking because I just bought some.

I'm not a fan of that. Don't think it does a thing. I do see results from Quick Start.

Thanks Julia. I have heard people swear by it and had to try it. I hope I didn't waste $ 10.!
I tried it on my Imperial Red Philodendron and misc. snake plant.
No miraculous change over night, but their not dead either.
If anything noteworthy happens, I will report on it.

Do you use the Quick Start with your semps?

Yes. There is information about this someplace. Kevin uses it on his but I don't use it as often. Let me see if I can find the information.

Lets just call him and ask. @JungleShadows Seems like he uses it once or twice a month. I use it at half strength and just when spring hit and have not had the time to do it again.

Thanks, Julia! This sounds worth looking into.
Our local ace hardware is having a big sale this weekend, I might have to pick some up.

By local, I mean not an hour away, only 30 or 40 mins. Rolling on the floor laughing
Coming from the east coast, where the food market is 5 minutes away, this country living out in the boonies takes some getting used to.

I could never live that far out, I'm always forgetting stuff. Safeway is 2 min from home. I use quick start on things I transplant and on seedlings in the greenhouse. I like it.

It's great here, don't get me wrong. But it took me a while to adjust.
We now have 20+ acres compared to the 1 acre we had in NJ.
It is an amazing place to live, and I don't miss the summer tourists, but man do I miss beach!

Heading off to Ace soon. Woo Hoo, gonna get me some of that Quick Start! Hurray!
