Hey all, I’ve been looking through the forums for info on my plan but nothing popped out at me, figured one of you green thumbs might be able to answer…
This is my second grow, used promix with perlite at 75/25 with good results in smart pots. This year I’m thinking of changing it up a bit and adding coco to the mix. I was thinking 50 promix bx/ 30 coco/ 20/ perlite.
Using gh flora to feed in 20gal smart pots.
I’ll be doing a cal mag 5ml/gal in the barrel to expand the coco to drop that negative charge. I am going to do a top layer of hydroton, and possibly a 3” layer at the bottom of the pots. Finally, I’m also planning on building slotted stands out of 1/2” pvc pipes to raise the pots up 4” off the ground.
I guess my question is the mixture of the grow medium, does that mixture of 50/30/20 sound like good for an outdoor/smart pot grow; and thoughts on a hydroton base layer? Thanks in advance for any and all input!
