I'm so confused, some people are saying that they need to water their coco daily, while 4 day water retention is probably more than soilless mixes ive seen! most posts on this thread people are saying they water their coco daily.. that's ALOT of watering I think! unless you have excessively large plants or small containers right? Hmm, Im considering going to coco because a 50 L bag of it online is only 20 bucks from Canna, however I cant find some good nutes specifically for coco online.. can anyone help me out?
while this thread IS about soil vs coco, what about soilless mixes that dont involve coco? Usually you can set one up to retain water for a good 2-3 day watering regimen.. or maybe that is why people mix their coco with perlite.. hm. non-coco-soil-less versus pure coco?
