Bro! I suggest to mix the coco with lots of perlite (if possible use both regular and expanded). Like 50-50. They both ph neutral, so u gotta push it down from 7. Peatmoss is very much like coco, but ph 3.5-4, so around 10% in addition will fix your problem. I suggest u to mix the perlite with the peatmoss, to make it spread easier and more evenly, and u may also better chop it a bit before doing so.

Good luck!! ( try to soak the coco straight in PH and EC adjusted water )

Peace

yeah like levente said i think the perlite will be nice to mix with, if you put a very little bit of soil in it too, it shouldn't get the ph too high i guess, bu those are just guessing ^^

Good luck man hope you'll find a solution ;)

Also from experience Coco needs to be buffered with calmag solution otherwise you will get deficiencies.I recommend 50/50 perlite/vermiculite as 60% and then Coco 40% its almost hydro. :cool:

Sorry if this thread is old. I hand water mine every two to 3 days - I use the bio bizz organic nutes and the coco breakdown above - super dense nuggets :)

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.
