Coco vs coco and perlite

Hello team

Autopot recomoneds a 50/50 medium mix of a medium and something like perlite or clay balls etc.

I’m running a 2v2 clone test in a grow. Journal. Over here

I will. Summerize the results there and here eventually.
However I turned the system on a bit early for the clones as they were big but hadn’t grown enough roots. So things are gojng a bit slow as of right now.


Rookie question!!! Do you have a recommendation for a brand of coco and perlite?

This is what I’ve been using.


Any will do as long as the coco is washed and buffed which all but reptile stuff is.

Do you rinse that off before mixing in? I’ve been using Vigoro and have to rinse all the chalky white dusty stuff out.

Biobizz claims that the coco is already buffered to a neutral PH. As far as the perlite no I haven’t rinsed it. I mix the pearlite with the coco at about 70-30 coco/perlite and layer the bottom of the pot with about 1-1/2" of just perlite.
