  5. ph your water to 6.0 and all will be good
  6. Try spraying the Cal mag as a foliar spray, mix lightly.

  8. Great guide.
    But there is one thing I would like to add.

    You said that calcium def is not a big problem, but it actually seems to be the cause of BUDROT!
    And that is a big deal! Only big name after this statement that I can say is CANNA. Google gives alot more hits though.

  10. So me and a buddy were arguing if you should feed your coco nutes every watering any opinions? Thanks! !!

  11. Thinking of doing a hybrid coco/hydro. What is the best way to germ and sprout in coco, then put in a DWC system? Like, a coco root cube? My goal is to start seeds/clones in the coco, then drop the "coco cube" right into my hydroton in my net pots.
  12. Yeah bud. Use your coco nutes Every watering to keep your levels consistent. 
  13. Hey Blades!
    If you grow in the great state of Colorado, try ICI's Loose Coco Coir. In terms of quality and low salt content it is on par with Canna or House & Garden, but about half the price.
    The reason is I import the coco from Sri Lanka myself and wash it here in Aurora, CO before we bag it.  Our quality control is locally guaranteed. If you do a 1:1 runoff test (by volume of coco to water) we unconditionally guarantee an EC reading below 0.5
    Avoid the salt issues that come with the cheap big bag brands like Botanicare or Atami (I've tested both of those runoffs over 1000ppm!)
    Buy Cheap. Buy Clean. Buy Local.
    Give me a call or a visit.  If you mention GC I'll give you a free sample.

  14. what do you guys think about transplanting from soil to coco? any complications? should you rinse the roots like you do into hydro or just plant straight in?
    Just knock off the excess soil and plant.  It won't hurt it.  
    I did coco twice and it was VERY forgiving (hand watering).  I switched to hempy buckets because the media was easier to buy and it was easier to maintain, but coco is awesome too.

  17. ED, I am a long time user of sub cools super soil, 10 years. I'm thinking of switching to coir.I've bought all the things you said you use in your mix perlite,blood meal,bone meal,kelp meal,green sand, Epsom salt,lime,cotton seed meal,dry molasses and mycrrhizae fungi. my question is I have a bunch of left over azomite and sp90 humic acid powder would it hurt to put these trace elements into the mix or should I leave them out ? my thinking is that the more trace minerals in the mix the better. please let me know if my thinking is incorrect.  
  18. Ok if you don't want to answer I wish you the best and I'll find out for myself thanks for all the insight !
