Hey y’all, newbie here!

Hi! I’m a newbie 1st time grower. I’m currently growing a auto-fem WW. I’m using Coco coir in a 5 gal cloth pot. She’s been in the tent/pot for 10 days and only being sprayed with distilled water. She’s doing very well at this point but, my question is…. How to feed? I will be using general hyrdroponics: Flora micro, bloom and grow. When I mix the nutes in my gallon of water, how much do I feed and how often? Thanks in advance for your help🙂

On GHs website they have feeding schedule charts. I’ll see if I can grab ya one to get started.

Thanks! I took a look and I’m still trying to figure out if I should be feeding the entire gallon at once or should the gallon of nutes be fed to the plant over a certain period of time

Gotcha, I grow hydro all automatic and I know coco is supposed to be treated like hydro watering often but I’m not sure to what runoff %. I seen @merlin44 was around. Let’s see if he can help you with that part or tag a coco grower. I can’t keep everyone straight. Gonna make a damn spreadsheet of members one day for my reference :grin:

Thanks for the tag @StonedCold13 but I have no idea about how to water with coco…I just grow in soil for some reason.
Merry Christmas!
I think that @Covertgrower or @AfgVet or @dbrn32 should be able to help.

When it comes to coco I water (feed) daily. Once my plants are a couple of weeks or so old I start watering until I have about 20% of what I gave them running out of the bottom of the pot.

At 10 days old you should be feeding them a couple of ounces a day poured in a circle at the canopy’s edge

I do the same. Feed daily until pot is soaked. 20% runoff seems like a good number. I quit measuring it to be honest. As long as bottom of pot is leaking well I’m good.

Coco feed daily as it has no nutrients at all in coco.
Think of it as hydroponics as it kind is.
It’s like a fluid and drain system that you operate by hand. . Everyday feed it till 20% or so runs out the bottom.
I can’t advise on strength of mixture but the chart should cover that. But about wise 20% at least of whatever you add runs out the bottom daily and she will take off running :grin:

Thanks to everyone! I started with the nutes today. I’ll keep watching to see how it grows. Should I feed one daily until the runoff or break it down to several times daily? Is one gallon of water (with nutes) enough per day? Also, should I water ( with no nutes) between feedings?
