Whatever you do go easy on the fertilizer. My first few attempts at starting seeds, I burnt the heck out of everything. Once burnt, it's difficult to overcome.

I'd say 1/4 strength, then even dilute that a bit more. You can always add more, but you can never take away. The last 2 yrs, I've just potted up to a mix that already contains plenty of nutrients, fox farm ocean forest. There are enough goods in that mix to last a month or more. Then, I don't have to worry about burning by over-fertilizing, mixing, ratios, fertilizer manufacturers, ect...

1/4 strength is the most I'll try, thanks for your insight.
