Ok so I planted some sprouted seeds today and after a little bit gave the planters a look and noticed something.  I used MGMC, and on the surface of all 3 planters, little bouncing specs of white making their rounds.  Is this something to be concerned about??? It's some sort of tiny bugs/mites in the soil.  Are they going to attack the plants as they start to root?  Or will they just die out soon and are merely the result of a fresh bag of MGMC being cracked open for the first time?

Indeed, it does sound like some bugs are making a home of your soil.  I've noticed armies of tiny white jumping bugs crawling up the sides of a container plant after watering, and generally haven't bothered to deal with them since a transplant wouldn't guarantee their removal anyway, and drenching my soil with harmful insecticides seems like a terrible idea for a plant I'm planning on consuming.  The insecticide treatment is really the only easily effective way to get rid of them, since they have likely laid a serious foundation of eggs and hatching larvae in your soil already.

Best advice I can give is to take greater precaution next time you grow.  Make sure your containers are scrubbed clean before use and that you're using good clean fresh quality soil.  Also, if you're growing indoors - grow indoors - don't go taking your plants (or gardening tools) out into the yard for some sunshine as that can introduce pests that won't be dealt with by predators once you've taken the plants back inside.

Do Your Part!
