Hi Noah,
For the seedlings in the greenhouse, I typically use synthetics. "Miracle-Gro" Water Soluble and "Lilly Miller" UltraGreen both sell a 24-8-16 water soluble synthetic fertilizer. Walmart as the the 5 lb box for under ten dollars. For seedling use it at less then quarter strength which would translate to a rate of 6-2-4. Quarter strength is the max and initial feeding should be half that! Please bear in mind that I am using the synthetic fertilizer on plants in a green house environment only. Thanks for posting.
