I was reading a thread not too long ago about using coconut water as a growth hormone but I can’t remember which grower it was I thought I’d save some research time and see if I could get some help from someone with experience or anyone else that had input
@raustin @MattyBear @Momtomask @anon95385719 @Drillbit @PurpNGold74 @skyroo1029 @HappyHydroGrower @TDubWilly @garrigan62
@Not2SureYet mentioned this in an article he forwarded to me. It might be beneficial.
It was in the journal “cloning with aloe” by mrcrabs.
Awesome thanks @Drillbit
@Mrcrabs could you share some info on coco water plz?
@Hogmaster told me about using aloe as cloning gel and it works. I’ve had success dropping in soil so long as I use seed starter soil.
Sure buddy what’s up? @Redeyedranger. I will be checking in from time to time, if you need a specific explanation, but I just normally use cocowater on my clones the first sings of new growth, maybe once a week, for a small batch of water I mix about 12.25ml per quart of water(R.0. or rainwater only).
Thanks @Mrcrabs I guess what I wanna know is whether or not it’s beneficial for larger plants or will it be effective enough to even worry about? And can you use it as a foliar spray? What are the downsides if any like burn or build up?
I was thinking it may be a good additive like cal-mag.
Thanks in advance
@blackthumbbetty any input on this?
I was reading on line and some use like a 1/4 cup per gallon to as an additive or "vitamin "
It can be used like a foilar spray or soil drench, 1/4 per gallon. It can be used during any stage of growth with caution, don’t use everyday. It’s high in potassium and lots of extra vitamins and minerals, after use I water regularly, good luck. @Redeyedranger
Appreciate your words of wisdom @Mrcrabs
Np,buddy anytime my friend
Thanks @blackthumbbetty that really helps
I bet you could find some scientific articles with actual percentages of various vit/mineral components & such, so you could really dial it into your feeding regimen.
I think I’m gonna try it for a while. Appreciate the help
Coconut milk contains Cytokinin zeatin, it encourages root growth.
Cytokinins are one of the classical five plant hormones and are adenine derivatives. Together with auxin, they play an important role in several plant processes such as cell division and differentiation, apical dominance, morphogenesis, and leaf senescence.
There is good info in Jorge Cervantes book the Cannabis Encyclopedia.
There is a lot of info online about this Hormone.
I had looked into that at one time. just didn’t seem cost effective to me. That stuff is pretty costly for a small bottle.
