I just bought the Grodan, Big Mamma 8×8 cubes from your new Carlsbad store. I was told not to wash or soak the cube before planting because of the chance of mold. But, I always thought you were supposed to soak the cube before transplantation. What should I do? Also, do I need to cover the cubes?
I have always preferred to soak the cube or at least wet it down really well prior to transplantation. Maybe that was a personal preference. Anyways, always cover the tops of the cube with tomato covers to prevent algae growth.
