I've decided my next grow will be attempting 4 different photoperiod feminised plants in coco for the first time.

Because I have 2m height now I feel I could stretch to using 19.5L Air pots.

Reading up while high on coco growing here i noticed mentioned using up 20% coco, how many 50L bags would I need to purchase?

Also would it be advised to buy smaller air pots like 4x7L and transplant during veg cycle to 19.5L

Also assume all my current nutes from Dutch pro okay to use with coco apart from the soil AnB, which is the cheaper side nutes anyway.

go for 100% coco in air pots mate, no need for powerlite. 

15l will be plenty, four plants in a pot that size, will fill you tent, trust me, ive been there, you dont want more than four, in 15L air pots.

Strart of in 0.5L small plastic normal pots, then go tino 5l airpots for veg. After a few weeks, transplant into 15l airpots, give them a week to recover and grow more root, then flip them.

you said 20% coco, i thought you meant perlite. For a coco grow mate you use 100% coco, you can mix it with soil, but that makes it a soil grow. The nuits you have will be fine for coco too

I did actually meant 10-20% washing the coco, loose bits tend to come out, so consider this when buying for preparation? 

I was going buy a bag of perlite aswell for the coco, should I not?

I'm all out soil now so will go away from that to try coco didnt intend to mix the two, only thought I had was clay pebbles at bottom?

In my opinion 5l is too big go for a 3l first, pot should grow with plant.

True, buts its not easy to find 3l air pots. The roots grow quick in coco too, it'll fill out fast with some rhizotonic, otherwise your transplanting three times in the grow, 3- 15L seems too much of a jump too, so you would have to do another transplant in between? How do you do yours mate?

With another transplant.  I am just setting up a coco grow so I got my boss helping me. Sometime when you go to big your roots will spread thin and forget about getting thick. But you can only do what your able to get I’m now lucky to have a choice of everything. I also have pre soaked my coco in super b but don’t use rhizotonic. What are the benefits to rhizo or is it just organic sea shit with vitamins b added? I haven’t cloned yet but that’s where I’m heading.

Perhaps I could go for the 3l, 7l and 15l? Seems good jumps. I've already paid arm and leg why stop now.
