Q.Should I Repot My Mandrake?

Zone rowland heights, ca | Anonymous added on October 5, 2021 | Answered

To whom it may concern, I planted a mandrake in July and used miracle grow potting mix and miracle grow performance potting pellets to plant my mandrake seed. The problem is that Miracle Grow is affiliated with Monsanto, which is notorious for its chemicals. I feel like my Mandrake is still alive and I need to help it grow. Is it okay to change the potting mix of the mandrake? What do you think of Fox Farms? Or feeding it fox farms liquid grow concentrate?

I'm not clear whether the seed has sprouted. If not, I don't think I would disturb the soil and I wouldn't add any more fertilizer before it sprouts. (We don't make product recommendations, by the way.) The seeds need a cold period, so if yours didn't get that, they won't sprout till spring. Here is info on growing them from seed:
