    Why organic nutrients do not work in coco

    I'm having good success with coco and organic fertilizers. I think the key is adding CEC buffers like biochar, greensand, and compost/EWC (my mix is 10% combined biochar and EWC bv). Also coco seems to work best with slow release organic ferts like feather meal (for N) and granular minerals...

    Would adding biochar to coco make it better able to hold dry organic nutrients on there?

    Biochar is definitely good for boosting your CEC. Other things to consider include compost, worm castings, and greensand or zeolite. I add them all to my mix. Just be aware that the soil CEC only holds cations that typically end in "ium" (calcium, ammonium, potassium, etc.) as well as heavy...

    Confirmed: I'm Screwed... Aren't I?

    ...Or half of each lol I use a crazy hot soil with 6+ months of nitrogen in it but it's got worm castings, biochar, compost,, and a bunch of greensand - all of which buffer the excess nitrogen by bonding with it in the ammonium stage of the nitrogen cycle, keeping nitrate levels pretty optimal...

    Post your Organic Soil Mix

    I run a close recipe to that of The Rev and would make a few changes. I would add some dolomite lime and use more kelp, greensand, blood-meal, alfalfa, and feathermeal. I would use less DE, granular humic acid, and langbeinite (that stuff is pretty strong). That is also a lot of all purpose...

    Kelp Meal Help

    ...for 1/2 cup per cubic foot, and didn't realize she had already added the 10 cups of kelp. I do have Gypsum in my mineral mix that I apply 4 cups per cubic foot. It is one part gypsum, two parts granite dust, and one part oyster shell flour. I also added a little bit of Greensand in with the mix.
