Place a thermometer or hygrometer to check for simultaneous change in temperature and air moisture.
Coco coir are commercially available as bagged loose coco coir and compresses blocks and also ready-to-use cultivation blocks .
Trichomes start head out clear and glassy- buds are not potent.
The seedling in the coco/perlite substrate should be watered once or twice per day until 20% runoff from bottom. Coco must not be let to dry and be frequently wetted.
And flush the mix by pouring pure water with a pH of 6.5 until the run off is less than EC 100 (0.1). The flushing is essential to drain away residual EC from buffering that could burn sensitive cannabis.
Preparing Grow Substrate
Marijuana requires highest aeration compared to other weeds. Mixing grow supplements like perlite and vermiculture improves water intake and encourages strong root growth.
In this stage where cotyledons sprout out, turn-on the CFL light to 24 hours (full day) and room temperature of 70-85 o F (20-30 o C), humidity 40-60%.
There are pre-made coco coir mixes, but they are usually more expensive than the cost to make a mix yourself. A pre-made mix is heavy like soil because it’s already been hydrated with water. This makes pre-made coco coir mixes expensive to ship, and heavy to carry around. If you’re willing to rehydrate your coco at home, you can skip paying a premium for water.
This stage lasts until your plant is about half the size you want it to be in the end. After your plant has grown half the desired size, it’s time for the next step.
2.) After seedling grows first set of “real” (serrated) leaves, water with nutrients at normal seedling strength , and add a regular dose of Cal-Mag (Calimagic). Keep giving water until you get about 20% runoff out the bottom of the solo cup. The first set of leaves are round, but the second set are serrated and pointy. Once you see those leaves, it’s time to water your seedling with nutrients.
If you’re just beginning to grow cannabis legally, you’ll want to grow it correctly. While we won’t get into the day-to-day details of cannabis production here, we will explain how to get your cannabis crop off to the best start possible. It all starts with your growing media (and we know growing media). Specifically, one growing media of choice for many growers is coco coir.
What Is Coco Coir?
Cocodelphia is also ready to go straight out of the bag. Add in some other beneficial amendments such as Biochar Blend or Worm Castings for a punch of nutrition. Or plant in the bag and save yourself the time of potting.
The Science of Coir
We at Organic Mechanics think our Cocodelphia coco coir product is one of the best on the market. Why? For one thing, we buy our coir from just one farm in India, so our variability in quality is essentially non-existent. That farm washes the coir several times and relies on the monsoons of Southeast Asia to accomplish this. Once we have received the coir, it’s washed again as we rehydrate the air-dried, compressed coir blocks. Essentially, Cocodelphia is triple washed.
