    Seedlings in Coco question

    After my seeds germed I put them in some Canna Coco. Should I water them with a tiny amount of the A & B ferts or wait a week or so?

    Wasn't too sure since I thought Coco didn't have any nutes in it to begin with as some organic soils.

    Thanks!

    Well... being my first grow and freaking out about everything. I added 25% of the recommended dosage at 1 week to my water. Which ended up being 0.5mL of the part A and B nutes.

    Watered last night and things are still looking good today.

    Im glad they're doing good, sorry about the lack of responses... idk why no one did. I dont use coco so I dont know much about it, but if it doesnt have any natural nutes, then yes youll want to keep using that 25% solution till leaves just start to get lighter green/yellow, then up to 50%, so on, and so forth. I believe you should feed every other watering.

    good luck

    Yep, I also use a diluted A & B solution from day 1 with good success.

    Good luck with your grow!

    I am 8 weeks into my 1st grow and I use Canna Coco, I used Canna Start for the 1st 2 weeks. But if I didn't have any Canna Start, I would do something similar to the above. Canna Coco doesn't have an nutes of it's own, so they need a little something to get them started. I was giving my girls about 200mls of water/food a day at the start and feeding 2 days on 1 day off.

    It would be nice if you could start a grow log Aquanaut, then we could trade information.

    I meant to say diluted part A and C

    I usually follow the ratios from this thread:

    The recipe

    Again, best of luck with your grow!

    Now that I have seen the pics in your grow log, I would hang back 7 days on any feeding. They are still just seedlings.
