Water before seed goes in?

Discussion in 'Coco Coir' started by Popcorn, May 19, 2019.

  1. I have some ready mix bag coco 70/30 mix with perlite I am going to add more perlite to it. What I need to know hopefully asap is do I water the coco then plant my germinated seed?
  2. I don't pre-germinate seeds but I do water the coco with a 1/4 strength bloom nutes.
  3. Yes water/feed before , you should never use plain RO water in coco it damages your buffer. I use a Canna Start , at the least I would do a lite cal mag mix as it has some N in it.
    Also no need to add more perlite .
    If your new to coco prepare to be freaked out by how wet it looks when it's right.
    I started at 180ppm no problems 15582740248711322270443290663216.jpg
