My next grow i want to go coco so i can space my plants out how i want and properly scrog. (and also deal with less of the equipment problems i had with rdwc and save a little on electricity)
I already have the lights and tent and exhaust, im just not sure what i need to be getting in terms of stuff for growing in coco.
I’m looking to use mother earth coco + perlite 70/30 mix as my medium.
Im thinking starting in solo cups and transplanting to 5 gallon fabric pots, or should i go 7/8 gallon with a 3 gallon between?
im want to make the scrog nets with pvc piping and such, not really sure what i should use for the actual net part, any suggestions?
in my 8x4 tent, i want to have 3 4x2 screens on left middle and right, 2 plants under each screen with about a foot between each 4x2 for work space and an HLG 300L over each screen.
Im not sure what to use to raise the pots over the trays so i can more easily check runoff ppms and such. (i do have to do that with coco right? lol)
For nutrients right now, i have advanced nutrients ph perfect micro grow bloom, along with b-52, big bud, and overdrive. Are these nutrients going to work for me with coco? Or do i have to get something different?
Ive been thinking of a way to put my chiller that i will have sitting to use, is it a good idea to chill the water/water with nutes before watering the plants with them? or does the temp of the water not matter as im not in DWC?
Any suggestions or ideas from anyone?
