    Nah it's not defeating the purpose with it and if I said that then I was wrong.. COCO is a perfect replacement for peat and is a better one at that.


    My plants are growing at a ridiculous rate in the mix I made..


    As far as the Humic Acid.. the LK should take over for that.. PB is one of the best ferts out there for coco. You shouldn't have any problems man, but remember coco is tricky if used straight.. I would amend it with some dolomite lime as you would with soil. And water it every other day... Just remember though if you use straigh coco you MUST feed/water from early on in life, and it must be done at every watering as there is nothing in the coco for your plants. cept (K) as the stuff breaks down.

    great stuff


    This is great to see- I have been thinking about starting a batch in a soil-coco mix, but wasn't really sure where to start from.


    Wakenbake- what kind of mixture do you use with your humus-coco-perlite?


    don't mean to steal your recipes, but hey, if it works- right?:eusa_shifty:


    I was out and about the other day and found this spot in the woods with the most ridiculously rich looking humus. I'm going to have to go back some night w/ my trusty shovel. lol

    Basically I used


    1 Block of flushed Sunleaves CLASSIC COCO COIR


    1 40LB bag of Organic HUMUS with added sand


    2 Bags of Perlite


    2Tsp per gallon of Dolomite lime to the final mixture...


    Everything was flushed thoroughly before I mixed it all together.. and nothing that claimed to be a potting soil or top soil went into the mix, and will never again.


    My plants are litterally putting on about a node and a half a day in this mix..


    I adjusted the pH with the lime up to about 6.8-6.9. I also bubble my nutrients up to about 6.8 before watering.


    I use Metanaturals which also has a pH buffer in it, so my pH will take care of itself for the rest of the grow...


    The only time I use my pH meter is to check the nutrients. The medium will take care of it's self with the natural buffering action of the humus and the lime that is there.


    Anyways that's what I use and the plants love it.

    WnB thanks a million! A node and a half/day? that's got to put a big smile on your face


    edit:


    I just read through the entire unofficial "official" organic thread-


    that's some really solid info. I think I'm going to do a bit more research on it and try to make a switch to a soil-coco mix. Anyway- thanks WnB and everyone else for all the great info- :notworthy:

    Just wanted to show off how my veg tent is setup at the moment and see what y'all think. I'm using cheap $20 dollar duct fans from Amazon. One for pulling out hot air then another pulling in fresh cool air and seem to be working great for this 2x4 tent. At times it gets a lil warmer thank I like (82) so instead of a air conditioner I'm using my tower humidifier on cool mist outside the tent pulling all that cool moisture in and it gets to a cool 75 degrees and on the plus it keeps it nice and humid for my small plants. I wanna add that I also purchased 2 fan controllers for like $7 bucks of Amazon and they work fantastic! When the lights go out it's been getting a I lil cool since it's been getting kinda chilly here and being able to adjust the 240cfm duct fans really helps to keep the temp that I need for the most part. I have a small tower fan blowing just above the plants to give them a nice breeze for movement but not to cause wind burn and another clip fan blowing up towards the light moving what lil heat this T5 puts off (which is also sweet for controlling temps) I added a 3rd fan called power circulator by Honeywell that pivots up 90° to circulate air coming from the light and rising heat. Well just felt like sharing after a good smoke and to see if anyone would make any changes. I'll have my flower tent complete in due time. smoking Banana IMG_20180408_002923.jpg MVIMG_20180408_003112.jpg Screenshot_20180408-005738.png Screenshot_20180408-005704.png Screenshot_20180408-005641.png Screenshot_20180408-005634.png Screenshot_20180408-005629.png
