Thanks for helping out us little guys BoneCarver!
Hey BC good to see you,
I'm glad your putting that skull of yours to good use.
We need a coco forum on IC, it is very much underrated.
I've used the PBPro in coco and I have 2 very important tips for you,
1 Pretreat your coco with a calmag formula.
2 Use the calmag formula everytime you fert.
PBPro is designed to do both hydro and coco but it only work if you supplement the nutes with the calmag formula, coco is a mag and calcium hog, most def. in a coco medium in the Cana Infirmary are calcium defs.
Also I've used the Canna coco and if you put seedlings in it without doing a pretreat with calmag you could get K toxicity, I put young seedlings in coco and then used PBPro and I had a K problem.
It is the initial element that is bound in the cationic exchange web that is inherent to coco so the wash balances it out, that's why BC suggest feeding to a 10-15% runoff, as well it flushes salt buildups out of the medium.
Rock on BC
