#2- You DO NOT need runoff and certainly not 40% runoff which is a massive waste of nutes. No runoff in coco works just as great as runoff. Check the grows on this forum with no runoff.

#3 Hand watering sucks
Bang on!

It was driving me nuts. I decided to switch to coco and all I did was pull out the net pot and held it over a 2 gallon pot and filled in with the coco around the roots. There was no stall at all!! the plant just Kept humming right along. So if anyones having problems with there hydro setup it seems it's ok to transplant right to coco. I now have handwatering and simplicity with hydro growth rates. Now this was only 2 plants I did this with and they were not in bloom at the time. But this seems to work.

The wierd thing is I transplanted to this 5 gallon dishpan about a month ago
and everyday I water I can see the shape of the of the original container. The roots don't seem to be spreading around in their new home. Have you seen palnts get rootbound in 2 gallon Pots of coco bonecarver?

Great thread man. This place is filling up quickly with alot of good info
Plant looks really good.... If you ever transplant late and want a plant to root into a new space try this....
I use a product for the first 6 weeks of flower that keeps the roots healthy and allows it to grow more roots...
Coco grows finish with white healthy roots...

Is mad stuff .. have seen it turn root rot in bubblers into white new healthy crazy big roots in a matter of weeks..

Is it necessary to water to run off if the coco is constantly moist? If kept at a low ec fertigation would salt build up be an issue? Also has anyone used Botancare's Pure Blend Pro in coco?

Almost no runoff is needed, I did a run with blumats and it worked fine. Just keep things moist.

If we did have run off its because the blumat feeds a little too fast when the tank is full. I didn't make an effort to feed to runoff.

Thanks for the reply! Did you use a mineral base fertilizer or something similar to pure blend pro?

Half strength FTW IMO ;)

House and Garden nutrient, pure coco. I always go about half recommended from what H&G chart says, but I also use Calmag and Silica in veg(half strength) and also a few weeks into flower then I drop calmag and silica. I also use multizen when chart requires but half strength, same with BudXL. MOAB for the finish, and even used pure PH RO for the last week! Things are looking great over here, smoke is clean as ever and turning heads. Barely ever had runoff, I did maybe one flush mid flower with low lower feed of just A & B and did look for a little more runoff toward finishing flush. A few pints a day hand water, 3 gallon plastic pots(thinking of switching to smart pots next). Keep em wet!

GG4 pulled at 57 days.
