Coco sounds pretty nifty.

If it's mixed with hydroton how often should you be watering?

I was reading up on the krusty bucket system and krusty said that he is going to go to a coco/hydroton mix and will be flooding 2/3 times a day.

Coco coir sounds great though, I think I'm going to give it a try myself and see, that's the only real way to find out anyways.

Thanks for the info, keep it coming. ciao

there is no set pattern on watering. theres simply to many variables, how hot in your grow room , size of pots or bags, size of plants, humidity level. I use stright coco in 1 gl gro bags, after vegging in beer cups for 1 to 2 weeks I transplant into the grow bags and throw them into flower, I usally water them every other day for 2 to 3 weeks, then onse a day after that, usally about once a week I skip a watering to let things dry out good. all hand watered using canna A&B nutes. with a 2 week flush at the end. I will never go back to soil as long as I can get coco. I also find coco holds nutes very well and you don't need to feed as much as they tell you. twice a week is plenty.

You should go to the coco sub-forum and do some reading. There is a lot of info in it.

water everyday weather stright coco or coco/perlite mix coco depends on the exchange of oxygen in the medium and only way to achieve this is watering everyday.

later in flower you may need to water twice a day, i water my veggers once a day from 3x3x3 inch squares to 2 liter bottels to even 1 gal bags. but as was mentioned coco section has alot of info

im still new to coco i dont use a ph meter i use GH 3 part flora series






yepper thats correct no ph meter but i understand what my waters ph is and what my ferts do to it and what i must do to obtain desired ph level.

You liked CocoCan, right joesy? That or Bcuzz are the choices around here.. probably gonna end up ordering some Canna nutes from afar.

1 gallon pots sounds like what we'd be doing too.. we're trying to do a SOG type setup, transferring cuts from a 7day veg in a bubbler into the coco, this should be no problem I assume?

would 1 gallon pots be packed side by side or would that be a waste of coco/water? seems like people grow some awful big plants in 2 gallon coco pots.. well the plan here is no LST/etc.

trying to figure out whether drippers or handwatering would be better.. and how important it is to have the runoff freely drain away (versus having the pots sit in it on the ground.. maybe hydroton in the bottom of pots?)
drippers seem like they might use too much water... sourcing any more RO than we currently do would make my head spin.

great thread, glad it was bumped..
thanks for any help
