Question on second grow with 4ft X 4ft tray Ebb N Flow?

by Gregg
(Spokane, WA)

Can you use the same peat moss over in your pots as I used in my first grow with coco on the bottom 1/3rd and the other 2/3rd with peat moss? Can the peat moss be reused by being rinsed out to get the salts out from the nutrients and used again in the pots for a second grow or should you get new peat moss to use?

Buy new peat moss
by: Stella

Hi Gregg,

Peat moss tends to break down more than coco or perlite, so I would buy new each time. But you could try reusing to save $$$.

If you want to try, leave all the media in the pots. Line them up outside, like on a driveway. Drench each pot with 1 part bleach to 3 parts water. Then rinse, rinse, rinse the bleach out. You can even let it rain on them.

This kills any bad bugs or viruses which might have started. Then just replant with new baby seedlings or seeds.

Hope this helps and good luck!
