I can’t believe I finally read all 196 pages of this thread and I get to be the 1958th comment for my first post on this site. I was directed here from someone on reddit, really glad cause I finally found a place to get real info and not feel like 80% or better of the “tips” are trolls.
So to start I need to say thank you to bonecarver_OG for coming up with the idea to make this thread for handwatering coco. Then I want to thank everyone who asked anything over the years and more importantly ALL those who contributed opinions. Even though there is controversial items on the agenda in regards to having a transplant and watering schedule, I feel most people in this thread agreed on better practices based on certain situations. And everyone has always seemed to be willing to help even those who had just found the information themselves and not sure but wanting to spread what knowledge they thought they could.
I feel confident moving forward on my first ever grow (for cannabis and as a gardener in general) using coco as my medium. Even after learning of ph and EC readings (had no idea EC had both 500 and 700 reading measurements always just thought .5=500ppm and 1.0 was 1000ppm) I still feel the whole thing is a little daunting but I’m happy I haven’t jumped the gun and germinated any seedlings without my ph/EC meters. I’m gonna try to figure out how to make a thread here to get help finalizing my grow space and determining best nutrient choices based off what’s in my local hydroponic shop for ease of mind when I need more
After the last few weeks reading this thread I feel like I am ready and thirsty for more knowledge and would appreciate a nudge in the direction of the next best thread to check out for a new cannabis gardener/new to gardening in general.
Ps. I am new to the idea of everything but have been constantly researching plant life cycles and needs and spent time on sites like www.growweedeasy.com
so basic understanding is there and I’ve focused on attaining knowledge on training and how to be ready. But you can honestly never know enough and never stop learning ☺️
Really bummed I haven’t seen mgk or bonecarver in the 2019 posts, but then again with all this knowledge is there really much else to add here for handwatering?
