hi hendrik...I AM SO F JEALOUS with everyone which lives on a country that cannabis is legal. this is totally not fair. while we are dreaming to plant it outside, they are face the fact. plant it outside is the super-simple method of all, no need bla-bla-bla which make so depression and very cheap in cost also...

 

right now, i am so in high-passion for learning all about cannabis, join with trusted community and forum about cannabis, hopefully will be legal soon

Henrik,

I'm not an expert on the use of coco, but there are some here who are.  I'll put a link in your intro thread to link others directly here, and maybe the coco experts might see that and bring you some good info.

I do know something about maintaining mother plants though.  It comes from my own hydro-in-Rockwool-Vegg tent.  And that is:  For maintaining the mothers, you don't want high intensity lighting, otherwise your mothers will out grow your tent and outgrow your processes.  A couple Fluorescent Cool White bulbs is sufficient to maintain mothers in slow-growth, and they are easier on your pocketbook.

Hi Henrik,

 

Well i am not a user of coco pure neither, i use to mix with soil to give it a bit more of air but never alone. What i know from the coco is that it is a sterile medium, theorically there is absolutely no microbial life in the coco and it can not survive very long by itself if you introduce in coco neither. So i dont know if the choice of organic nutrients like you are using is best for you. I Could be wrong but i dont think the medium will alow your nutrient to transform like it should to be available to the plant if there is no microlife in your medium. for that you would need to add some soil to it probably. 

Im not saying coco and organic will not work, but just that it will not get the best out of your nutrient line.

Beside this for the waterings and all the rest you will need to adjust the frequency to your valuables in the grow, but most of the times with coco is daily watering anyway.

 

Good luck in this man!

Thanks, Dust.  I hadn't heard it explained that way, but it makes sense so.

So coco acts more like a soil filler that helps with both drainage and water retention,

sort of in between perlite and vermiculite.

About us

Strain Hunters is a series of documentaries aimed at informing the general public about the quest for the preservation of the cannabis plant in the form of particularly vulnerable landraces originating in the poorest areas of the planet.

Cannabis, one of the most ancient plants known to man, used in every civilisation all over the world for medicinal and recreational purposes, is facing a very real threat of extinction. One day these plants could be helpful in developing better medications for the sick and the suffering. We feel it is our duty to preserve as many cannabis landraces in our genetic database, and by breeding them into other well-studied medicinal strains for the sole purpose of scientific research.
