@Countryboyjvd1971 yeah I use a digital ph twice a day on my hydros and once a day on the runoff from the coco. I put a dry meter in the coco and what it shows frequently doesn’t seem like it could possibly be right, so I kinda consider it bunk other than the moisture part of it, but that reading doesn’t really change my daily course of action, so it’s irrelevant. It probably makes more sense when growing in actual soil, but not coco. I think I turned the corner on the issues I was having trying to figure out what to do when with the coco. I solved it with a simple gear addition. I set the whole pot in a square Rubbermaid tub with 6 in sides and let it runoff to its heart’s content and it’s become part of the daily to empty it before watering it. My schedule for it is:
Friday - 4-gallon flush, emptying the tub as needed, then finish with 1/2 gallon nute water
Sat - day of rest and observation
Sun - water
Mon - water
Tue - nute water
Wed - water
Thu - water
Since changing mentality & method, she’s thriving.
To top or not to top is my next decision. I’ve been watching YouTube vids all morning. I’m scared of !@#$ing them up. They’re so beautiful and perfect right now.
