metro mix 852


Well-Known Member
Anyone have any experience with this growth medium?

Seems to be similar to promix bx but ~1/4 cost

I am trying it in 3 trays of DCOs that have germinated and are being vernalized in fridge

No experience here with this mix. Does it drain well? Does it maintain its consistency?

I am guessing you used it as it was purchased without adding anything to it.
You should have success growing your DCOs in the Metro Mix 853 media. It's high in composted pine bark content (50-60%), close to the Fafard mix I mostly use (53-63% pine bark). Good luck!
