    pH pen and Ec meter are a must for coco. Otherwise you are p1ssing in the wind.

    Don’t follow the manufactures recommendations. I start at 0.2 EC. Soft water is a good thing IMO.

    Personally I would also recommend auto irrigation and feeding in coco is a regular occurrence ! I am way too lazy.

    would be useful to see these inside the growing space n how youve set it up too.

    whats your Rh moisture n temp readings?
    light cycle?
    light height?
    watering schedule and how much?
    i noticed youve fabric bags water slooooowwwly or itll just pish out everywhere

    ive no experience in coco but youll need your background water ec n PH level, also again once youve mixed in nutes

    cal-mag is also another handy thing to have about.
