Coco/Perlite Ratio for recirculating hydro
    #676060 - 06/25/13 06:02 AM (3 years, 5 months ago)

So I'm trying out coco coir in a recirculating drip system. What would be a good ratio of coco to perlite? I was thinking 1 part coco and 3 part perlite.

I've seen people do a lot of different ratios, everyone has their opinion on what works best.  Some 75-25 percent perlite to coco, some do all coco.  Start experimenting and see what happens.

Yeah that's what I've seen too - I haven't come across a grow log where someone is using coco in a recirculating system. I've only found vague comments about that.

Perlite is fantastic on its own, so I think I'm just going to do 3:1 perl coco and see.

I'm sure it will work just fine.  Just make sure things aren't staying too saturated.

You shouldn't have any issues honestly other than lines clugging and keeping the res, and pump filter clean.:smile:

I use coco for my seedlings and veg room, and I've never used perlite.  Coco doesn't need any real help holding moisture, so I've never seen the need for it.  So I doubt the ratio will hurt you either way you go.
