I hope all of you are safe out there. I’m about to start my first grow ever.
I’m running a 3x3 tent with a 600w LED , carbon filter, 2x fans etc … my setup is pretty complete
Seeds are on the way and my first grow will be AK x Critical Mass ( was looking for some high yield seeds )
I will be running my setup like Mr. Canucks on youtube. Doing some more research last night, I read that coco and dry amendments is not a good mix ? Can someone help me out with this ? Any of you have tried this method ?
Also, when you look in the video description he says he uses worm casting, bat guano , kelp and alfalfa meal but in his videos I can’t seem to find details about there products ?
I dont know much about coco but from what i know u can mix them. I would put bone meal and blood meal too and all those would have all the nutrients u would need. It works well for me but may not last the whole grow. I mix about 25 to 30% perlite
Soils are optimized for the specific plant grown. Without a background in horticulture you will run a serious risk of losing your plants. As I stated you would be much better off to get a couple of grows behind you before branching out.
I shoulf of research more … I already bought everything… They way Mr. Canucks does seems so simple that I just went dumb and bought everything loll … I’ill try it anyways… Not because a few people said it doesn’t work that I wont have success… seems there’s a few people that have done it and got nice results… to be continued
Oh for sure! If there is a program for success then by all means. However, knowing what I know now, Id defer to a grow system that lots of people use, for obvious reasons. Even still, if you have issues, the group is here to help. Have fun its only a plant right?
Exactly. Honestly if I could start all over I would probably use a different strategy regarding my flower nutrition but Hey lets give this a try ? I should probably do a recap of my experience since a lot of people have the same questions as me
Dude you’re good. Think of Coco as NOTHING. It has zero nuts. By using Coco you are controlling everything very easily. I know Mr Canuck. It’s very easy to do and you’re doing it right.
Mix your Coco (Mo KoKo is what he uses), it’s a perfect, READY TO MIX Coco. Stay away from the kind you have to soak them dry…add about 10% perlite and 70%444 30% 284…plant your seed. Only give it a little water first few days. Then water normally, after 3 weeks topdress with 50/50 444 and 284…after 6 weeks do final top dress 70%284 30% 444.
THATS IT!!! Me personally like to add some worm castings in during last top dress. Maybe calmsg if I see any yellowing but I haven’t yet, bottle unopened 3 yes later.
An aquarium type air pump to pH your water really does can me in handy. Especially if you’re doing a compost tea!!! It’s worth the 22 dollars
