If you keep an eye on BIG grows around the net you've seen coco steadily taking over the game. I see just as many traditional hydro/aero growers changing to coco lately as I do soil growers, and yet for different reasons. Growers change their mediums all the time, but coco is the only one I see people flocking to and never away from. At some point it will win most of you guys over too. Just my two cents.




Awe shucks... just bought all this hydroton for my next grow. My systems probably not too coco friendly anyway.

I rolled with soil, but my vote is completely biased since I've only ever grown in soil..(other than using a home brewed areoponics system for cloning)

When my living conditions change and things improve financially i do plan on branching out a bit. Hempys or coir will be the first plunge i think.

U mean I can use coir !  Coco Coir same shit I use as a bulk substrate for mushrooms can be used as a growth medium in my hempy buckets and 3 gallon buckets for my ebb+flow setup !

Hydro seems to work better for me, as it is easier to correct thing IMO.

So long as you flush it out well, yes, you can use the coco coir as a hydro medium.

Convenient huh lol. One of the most important things to remember as diesel said make sure you flush it well before use, a while back when I first started using it I ran into problems and couldnt figure it out then one day it hit me. duh

Yeah very important. My brother did his first run with coco a few months back, and he forgot to flush the coco before he transplanted. The plants did not enjoy that :sad:
