More details: I started marigold seeds, half with Black Gold and the other half in Espoma’s seed starting mix (which I have also reviewed). They were subjected to the same conditions indoors under fluorescent lights. The seeds in the Black Gold mix started growling in just 3 days, while those in Espoma’s mix were 1-2 days behind. The germination rates for Black Gold were also 30% higher initially. I have already ordered more Black Gold mix.
Update 3 weeks later: the seedlings have been moved outside. The picture shows Black Gold seedlings on the left and those planted in Espoma’s seed starting mix on the right. It took MANY more seeds to produce the same number of plants in Espoma’s mix — and actually, I never did get that, even with twice as many seeds. However, once sprouted, Espoma had the seedlings growing by leaps & bounds because it incorporates fertilizer. I’m now subtracting a star from the Black Gold mix; keep in mind that you will need to supply fertilizer to encourage vigorous growth with Black Gold.
