I feed my plants in coco multiple times a day. Some people feed and let the coco dry out a bit before feeding again.
The idea is you want to pick either application and stick to it. To try to keep oxygen in the root zone to prevent root rot (anaerobic bacteria). Watering often (2-3 times a day or even more) introduces more air into the medium than watering once a day), letting your pots dry out a bit also introduces air.
I find that my plants grow quicker when I feed multiple times a day, so that's what I do.
I shall water everyday from now on with pH adjusted water + nutrients, I have a air pump some where i could use to aerate the water too if this helps get more oxygen into the soil.
Ive been looking after a friends grow and they are showing bad signs of nute deficiency from what I've learned its due to the fact he has been feeding them to little and with water that hasn't be correctly pH adjusted his last tanks pH was at 8!
These pics have come out very yellow but i think you can see what i mean
Lack of Nitrogen and Mg and Phos from my studies and other peoples opinions.
Thanks again for the help !!
One last thing if the water being added to the pots was very alkaline would addding water thats a bit too acid help balance that out? Or is this bad practise?
