    Default Nutrients for Coco substrate

    Hey guys,

    I was wanting to grow some medicine for my arthritis I’ve binged on how tos on YouTube and I think I have some idea on how to but the only thing I’m confused in is nutrients can you please help me with that? I am using coco as my medium.

    I want a maximum of 4 bottles of different nutrients and one should be a terpene enhancer and one should be a bloom phase booster.

    I also be buying great white mycorrhiza and azos by extreme gardening.

    Thanks a lot for your help.

    Welcome donghi
    Id recommend on the Canna Coco lineup.

    Got with Rhizotonic, A+B and PK 13/14
    Thats all u need for start. And some perlite in ur coco is good for early veg and makes things faster

    I dont believe in any fruit and taste enhancer. U need good genetics and a good grow, for ur buds to develop all these qualities.

    Start with the basics of any line, then add something in one by one. That's the way I did it it took a while but it would help me learn my nutrients in a way that I just wouldn't have learned otherwise.

    Once you have been going a while you will want some silica and maybe some calcium and magnesium depending on whether you're in hard water. I haven't tried organic with coco I don't know how that would go. I don't think there's any need buying beneficial bacteria if you want to keep it simple, you have to feed the bacteria and they have to feed your plants.

    Its a more advanced approach and is not a must. Rather its just more room for errors.

    Id stick with rhizotonic for root development, a+b as base is all u need with a tap of 0.3 and more. And a little dose of pk for a week or two. Thats it

    I’m following a couple UK growers on Instagram and they add mycorrhiza and a root treatment for better root development and uptake.

    If you wanna check those guys out they are really good.

    Well i know near to nothing about growing weed in soil.... nor about soil fertilizers, i just remember some talks here about all those beneficials dont work with coco fully because nothing is living in the medium.. so it may have benefits just not as much as in soil.... anyhow, dont need anything else but the canna range, not even the complete lineup... easy peasy

    Go for whatever nutrients are more convenient to you.

    Getting more terpenes is down to the quality of the light and the genetics.

    Agree with shredder here, couldn't be a simpler solution to what you need, 4 bottle line up, forget about miracle potions and enhancers...genetics and environment are key

    Plenty of ways to only use a few bottles with coco.

    1 bottle: Ionic Coco Bloom. Used in veg, the plants will get more N than my plants get.

    2 bottles: GH Micro + GH Bloom. Mixed at 6ml Micro and 9ml Bloom in 4 litres of tap water. I'm currently using this. No need to adjust pH.

    With equal genetics, extra quality is down to the light. Extra yield is down to logistics, get that canopy full.

    Thanks for you guys input on nutrients I’ll go with canna as everyone praises it but secondly,

    What do you guys think about me using 3 x 400watt hps bulbs, I thought that there wasn’t enough blue spectrum light for veg so I was thinking of getting these 3 x 18watt grow light strips( blue spectrum ) to add with the hps bulbs as I’m living in a country where we do not get proper grow lights.

    I’m growing in a 6ft x 6ft growing space.

    I am attaching the pictures of the grow lights that I’m talking about.
