Hey everyone! So I am curious if anyone has experience with Coco Tek grow and bloom. The reason I am asking is because currently I have been using the ph perfect grow micro and bloom by advanced nutrients and up till now I haven’t had much deficiency issues other than the cal mag problems just because of using coco for my medium. But now getting into early flower I was seeing the starts of some deficiencies that I am assuming is because I am not using the full line but after looking at the prices for all the additives I realized I had started down quite the costly path. I was planning on switching over to canna coco a and b but the local hydro store is all out for the next couple weeks. They showed me the Coco Tek line and I decided to go with it. But now I am just curious if I have to go out and buy the rest of the reccomended products on their feeding schedule. Or do I have enough nutrients and additives to make it work.
You have enough nutrients I dont think you would have to go buy them
@Majiktoker I was thinking I should be alright as well I am just curious as to what I should combine or do I just watch my ppm as I add everything? My other concern is the transition from AN to GH. Should I just do the switch today cause it’s feeding day. I know when I was feeding with AN I was up to 1500-1600 ppm and I wasn’t even at full strength yet, but now switching do I introduce the new fertilizer at a low ppm and work up or do I just match previous feeding? Just got the liquid karma and pk13/14 today so I need to work those in as well with my ppm
I would switch today and start with less and gradually work your way up and yes add those in and work your way up, remember its a ratio, every number will increase when you add more
Thanks a bunch @Majiktoker!! I am only about a week and a half maybe 2 weeks since she has been showing white hairs, should I be adding the pk13/14 already? The guy at the store said add it for week 5 and only use during week 5 of flower but that sounded a bit odd.
Yes go ahead and add it now is about the time I would be adding it @Tfunk, potassium and phosphorus will help with bud swelling and developement
OK awesome I was thinking now would be the time to start it. Thanks again for the advice it is very appreciated!!
My pleasure happy growings
Thanks to everyone here it has been great growings so far Lol I totally forgot one question. Is it OK if i let my coco get mostly dry? I have heard it causes nutrient/salt pockets in the coco and the next watering can release the buildup and cause the plant to take up much more nutrients than intended. I am using 3g fabric pots and a 70% coco 30% Perlite mix. And I am watering every other day and it is really dry when I water. Is watering everyday better to do? I figured it shouldn’t hurt because the mix should be very difficult to over water but I was just wondering what your thoughts are
Yes let them get mostly dry thats how plants get oxygen to the roots
OK cause when I pick them up to feel how much water is in the coco it seems like it’s bone dry. I am just concerned that once she is bigger I will go to work and come back to a very sad and dry plant. I had read somewhere that coco is almost impossible to over water just because even fully saturated it is supposed to contain 30% oxygen still.
Yea thats about when youd want water
