u would have to try it out and let us know

the tray method is quite reliable - as long as u know how much ur plants use but i wouldnt leave for a longer time without checking up on them. just a weekend etc

peace

Hey guys here's a good story for handwatering coco.

I started this plant from seed a few months ago. It was was in a a 32 gallon rubermaid DWC hydro setup. I was having alot problems with it and I never installed a way for it to drain. 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

ive used up to 5 gallon pots indoors but i transplant just before flowering to make sure there will be enough space for the roots.

if the plant is in flowering i would not expect too much root growth after the first month.

Feeding Multiple Strains....and different phases...

I handwater several strains and different phase plants each watering...and I don't have enough plant numbers to justify seperate mixes (batches of nutrient)

What I now do is:
1. start with 2 gal of source water
2. add additives
3. adjust PH

>Next I add nutrient to reach desired EC for the smallest plants to be fed....(in my case two mental Floss seedlings currently).....

>After feeding the babies...I add nutrient to reach level for next set of plants to be fed at next higher EC (1.0 currently for me).....then I top off with source water if needed (no need this recent feeding)....adjusting PH....then hitting my 1.6EC target for my more mature ladies....

This system beats mixing 1/2gal just for two seedlings that only need a cup of nutrient for the two of them....rather than mixing seperately...I prefer this method...

For larger gardens (more plants at various stages) this is probably not beneficial...but for me this works well.....

peace
