Ok to put soil-potted seedlings in Grobo?

Hi everybody! Is there any reason not to put a few seedlings (planted in soil in little biodegradable pots) in the Grobo at the beginning of a grow so that the little guys in the pots will have the benefit of the Grobo’s lighting cycle at the same time as the one growing hydroponically in the coco pod? (When they’re ready to be transplanted into something bigger, they’ll move out to the backyard.)

Thanks!

Perfectly fine to do while all the babies are small. @Bplatinum9 actually used a magnetic basket/holder thing to have them on the wall of the Grobo too which can raise them up in case the Grobo plant gets bigger

Thanks, that’s a great idea!

Thanks Todd and Pyro! What about saving the drained water (after a drain and fill) to water plants that are in soil? Will the nutrients that are in the water nourish the soil-plants?

Yep, @ToddYYC is definitely right.

Check this out:

@Richardswang was watering his plant with the Grobo nutrients in the beginning at least, I think he might have changed to extra nutrients later on possibly if I recall
