    Why organic nutrients do not work in coco

    Organic nutrients break down to the exact same elements that are synthetic nutrients. but using organic defeats the purpose of power feeding you’re coco plants for that sweet growth

    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...

    For four bales u need 1 gallon each of blood, bone and greensand and a pint and a half kelp meal don’t need much of this stuff and 1-2 bags cow manure or sheep etc. If you could bin your soul for a couple three weeks before planting time everything inside would have begun to activate.

    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...

Dr earth seems to be the closest runner up but it is missing quite a few great ingredients like greensand, oyster shell, rock dust, insect frass, blood meal, and a few other lesser important ones.
