    COCO COIR Reuse of coco

    If you personally reuse your coco...can u help me...

    I started one plant in coco and it was a male...yanked it , and it had a decent root system. We got out what we could but is it bad to reuse it with root pieces in it. This was my first attempt at coco and am switching to all coco now. Thanks for the advice. Any other tips u wanna add.

    You get out what you can, i use some big wire racks to help sift but mostly hand stirring and finger combing, some root fibers will remain. Make sure you flush your reused Coco before planting in it.

      Thank you ...I was planning on redoing the cal mag soak etc.... coco seems much more in my lane and im excited for my new seeds from msnl.

    Glad to hear that, I am using Coco in all my new grows. Glad to know we can reuse some of it. I am very happy with the results so far and easy to order 5 bricks at a time and been getting 2cu feet of parilite at Home Depot. And when I have gotten a few days away from need next size pot, I mix it up and then PH and give some Cal-Mag and let it dry for a day or two before use over a drain on a rack in the floor. I actually need to make up a 5 gal and 3 gal tonight.

    I was just thinking about throwing it in my flower garden when done.
