Hi All 

I use living soil but my partners using just coco coir and green planet nutrients. We're both new to this it's our first grows and we have ran into some issues. We didn't learn about washing or soaking coco until after planting a few seedlings into it. We have now had a few deaths in the family lol. We need help with recommendations on how to soak the now washed coco, washed with PH'd rain water at 6.0. 

There's about 130L worth of coco to soak, and we need to use the Green planet nutes on hand which I will list below:

-Cal mag

-Dual fuel 1 + 2

-PK spike

-Plant guard

-Massive bloom

-Rezin

I'm curious what people do when they soak, how much water they use, how long do they soak before planting. Some say just use calmag at the start some say use them all, and I trust you bunch the most lol so opinions/ advice please come at us with any guidance 😅 

We will be growing indoors Gelatos in tent size 2x2, under x2 600w dimmable HPS. We have a humidifier, 2 Fans, Carbon fan with Intake fan 4inch, Outlet fan 6 inch. 

Peace

@woolieback cheers for the guide that's given really clear instructions for us to work with I love it, I save all these wonderful articles.

Wondering though do people buffer with only Calmag or do they use extras? Is it more a personal choice as to what people do there

@gunja_mumma The coco will absorb the calcium mostly, so using a high cal/mag solution is best. If you use normal nuits, and it has calcium in, the coco will leech it out of that, you will just need to use more.

@macky cheers for that so would you say just buffer in Cal mag, at 1.5% Higher than recommended dose on bottle. Then introduce the other nutes once in pots? At 1/4 Dose of the recommended? If I read the article correctly 😅

@gunja_mumma That sounds about right to me Smile

Do you have an EC meter?

@macky sweeeeeet as! I sure do I invested in the best of the best EC and PH probes the shmancy blue labs 😍

But there a little use less if I don't start tracking the data though hey? 🙃 this topic needs more research for me to grasp what I'm actually measuring haha so I can get a deeper understanding.

I tend to research stuff at a time it's irrelevant, then when it is actually relevant the memory is faded 🙃

@gunja_mumma yea use a dose and a half for buffering don't add other nutes in. as for time left to soak you hear all sorts ranging from a couple hours to days we buffer with calmag because coco binds to calcium so the plant can't use it buffering the Coco allows it to release the calcium to be taken up be careful feeding in the first week as calcium tends to have nitrogen in it aswell you don't want to fry the seedlings
