    Botanicare Pro Grow and Pro Bloom

    I am just starting my first coir grow in fabric pots. Nebula's tutorial on coir is great. She mentions one brand of nutes that don't require a reduction in the amount recommended by the manufacturer, I am using the above products from Botanicare.

    Should I reduce the strength to 1/2 or 1/4 of the amounts recommended by Botanicare at each stage of growth?

    Also, my understanding is that I should alternate watering with nutes, followed by watering with plain phed water.

    Thank you.

    Hello Spanky, yeah I would start low an continue to raise it slowly as long as your plants aren't showing bad burns. You want to give them all they can handle without burning, a little tip burn ain't to bad. Be sure to start adding cal-mag from the beginning.

      Thanks DASS69,
      Cal/mag is ready and waiting. Other than slow growth, do you know what would be the symptoms of not enough nutes?

    Sorry, just found the photo guide on deficiencies. For a weed, there is an awful lot that can go wrong!
