Obviously not but can I reuse the reclaimed coco from last run? It does have the super thin roots in places so just making sure as cash is tight and I want to get growing again. 

TIA

One of the saddest lessons of history is this: If we’ve been bamboozled long enough, we tend to reject any evidence of the bamboozle. We’re no longer interested in finding out the truth. The bamboozle has captured us. It’s simply too painful to acknowledge, even to ourselves, that we’ve been taken. Once you give a charlatan power over you, you almost never get it back.

After reconditioning it I mix new and used at 50/50 rate and it works great. I rinse out the fines out of the old stuff through a colander after the roots were removed and that helps a lot.

@monkeydo great idea that mate didn’t think of a collander 

Also seems a waste tbh it still feels decent.

So I actually did exactly this for my northern lights run about a week or so ago. The main thing I will say is that you want to make sure you rinse the coco peat out and ensure that you treat the coco with something to remove any possible bugs left over from the previous run. I usually use Diatomaceous earth to treat the medium prior to planting but on this occasion I was rushing and didn't use any and one of the seedlings paid the price via a fungus gnat attack. Other than that as the others have already said you want to mix in some fresh coco and ensure you re-buffer it all to prime it for the new plants. Good Luck and if you have any questions about it let me know Smile   

I feel like a, like a slice of butter... melting on top of a big-ol' pile of flapjacks... yeah.
