Watering every day in coco?

I hear because coco is hydro and not soil you should water every day so Oxygen Wil be fresh in the soil just want to hear what the pros on here think.

Good results??? I like cyco but the entire time I been using it wrong so now I’m going to see what it’s really about used it in soil 1/4 strength the entire time got good results but right at 7th week of flower got yellowing and all types of b.s so I just cut it down smh 2 weeks early

Most that use coco feed every other day @Nell1 It’s not hydro and most coco will pH to more like 6.2 pH

I’ve only used cyco supa sticky in place of chaching with my fox farm nutes. I liked it and noticed some great trichomes. My buddy at the grow shop uses cyco and he loves it but that’s all I have experience with. Good luck!

I use coco.

To be clear, it’s a medium, not soil and is treated LIKE hydro.

I use GH Flora series with spectacular results.

So how are you watering my friend and I’ve been thinking of mixing nutrients but kind of scared

My big girls get fed or watered daily. The schedule changes over time but I feed at the minimum tds values and they love it.

The smaller plants might go a couple of days between waterings.

Any nutrients should be done following a published schedule. 800-900 ppm in veg and up to mid flower then ramp up to around 1,300 ppm for late flower. Always water to runoff and whenever there’s a nutrient change perform a flush. If your water is under 250 ppm cal mag is probably necessary.

I’ve read that you should never feed one day, water the next with coco. You can skip days altogether if the pot is still heavy, but don’t give it just pHed water. With soil, it retains some nutrients in the medium even when you used just water. In coco, you are washing all the nutrients out if you use water. That’s why the manufacturers feeding schedules include just a few flushes. People who use nutes and then water every other day are flushing all the time.
