Hi fellow people,
so next grow I’m switching to coco. I’ve learned some things about coco but probably not enough lol…
I know 5 gallon bags are better for watering issues. Unfortunately, at this point, I have to go with 3 gallon. Eventually I want to get a fabric autopot set up but out the budget right now.
Which brings up this question… has anyone used one of these automated water drip system with any success? Sounds like they work good for water… im wondering about the Silica. I know it’s not gonna last real long, but I would hope a couple grows.

I was thinking of using a coco/vermiculite blend for better water retention. Any thoughts? I’ve read perlite reduces water retention and probably isn’t needed
Local nurseries have nothing in-stock. Im wondering about brands since some sound bad. I was looking at this

This is what I want down the line or something similar. I really wish I could find the 3.9 gallon fabric pot set up. I also wonder if fabric is as important with coco since fabric would increase evaporation?

I’m already using jack’s 3,2,1 and have silica and cal/mag. I have until December or so. Im not familiar with starting seedlings in coco but all that will come later im sure. Right now I’m thinking like this
