Things are cookin’ now, boys and girls. Well, some things are cookin’.
Finding myself with a little free time the other day, I decided it’d be a good idea to pot up my seedlings from their little starter plugs to their new homes in red plastic cups (I didn’t splurge for the name brand because the savings were off the chart). At this point, everything in soil is doing really well, but my hydro plants have definitely fallen behind, despite having a really strong start. The problem I’m facing with the hydroponic plants is that the coco coir is holding far too much moisture. I don’t want to over-water the plants in coco, but I need to feed them their nutrients so I sort of have to! I did the transplant this weekend and it feels as if the coco cups are just as wet as when I started them.
Hopefully the nutes turn the hydro plants around and they take off. Otherwise, it might be all soil this time!
Now, for those of you that have grown in coco before, any tips? Perhaps I’m missing something important here. Leave a comment if you’ve got some advice, please!
That’s all for now – I’ll continue to update this grow every Wednesday.
