I have been growing for just over one year with four grows under my belt with the fifth in flower. I have four clones from current grow plus two seeds that have just cracked.
I started with a local “high performance” soil mix and had a serious gnat problem. Switched to FFOF and have fewer gnats. I have had good results growing in “soil” but I am now thinking of going with coco coir.
There are several areas that I am looking for advice and guidance on from folks that have experience with coco.
Is going to coco a good idea? And why?
Can I continue to use the FF Trio that I have been using? I have 2 1/2 gallons of each on hand.
Is it a problem transplanting my “teen clones” currently in soil to coco?
My understanding is that pH should be 5.8 - 6.3 in coco. Is that correct?
Are there any significant changes to my growing techniques that I should consider in making the switch to coco? What might those changes be? That is besides feeding schedule as I do understand that coco has no nutritional value so all nutrients must be provided from the beginning.
Thank you all for your advice and tips.
Anyone else have ideas for me, please chime in…
