    Hybrids-Quantity versus Quality

    To answer your question plant-lover68,yes you lose something in breeding. Everything is in life is a trade off. Landraces have evolved to survive in their region of the world. When we start breeding with them we do not care about the traits that are best for survival in that location. We...

    Which is better - coco or fytocell?

    lol I just thought all of its components don't look to healthy. Agreed that this products individual components don't mean that it is an unhealthy product. I would like to know more about the process to make it and more about its biodegrading process before deaming it green. Always a little...

    A urea melamine formaldehyde resin doesn't sound to attracting to me personally, but.... ISHS Acta Horticulturae 697: International Symposium on Soilless Culture and Hydroponics FYTOCELL, AN INCREASINGLY POPULAR SUBSTRATE Author: J.C.C. Welleman Abstract: Aminoplast-foams have been...

    Dizzle's booty clappin on ya grave

    Hi Crysmatic maybe I can answer what your asking. It is not N. If that was the case we would all just add more N into our fertilizers when we are growing in soil. The reason is air. When you water soilless mix to a lesser extent rockwool, coco you get a lot of water and not a lot of oxygen...

    25 GAL HEMPY DTW or RECIRCULATE ?'s

    I feel more comfortable with flooding the grow medium espaciall witht the 60-40 hydroton/chunky coco "chow mix" to insure the whole root mass gets wet. i guess with other mediums there is more capilary action but it doesnt seem like that with this mix. So dripping with litle runnoff doesnt seem...

    Coco trees (MPB style lighting)

    The reason I was going to do it the reverse, starting with a very high perlite level at the beginning and moving towards more coco is a) for better gas exchange in the middle root area; and b) more water holding capacity near the end of the grow. To me oxygen gets to the sides of the pot the...

    Want to grow a tree!

    I could keep a mother, just figured with a very long time between needing cuttings and growing huge trees, getting cutting from the plants going into flower would be easy. I could veg longer by taking the cuttings earlier. If veg time is too long then, say I only needed 7 weeks to veg, I would...

    Vert Colosseum Coco Grow

    Looking great. Nice setup. Love the drainage system. One thing about coco is cal mag def. My buddy I am helping out had it bad! Right at the beginning of flower too. Really hurt his yields. When I switched to coco after not growing for a year I had it bad to. You seemed to really nip it...

    Dizzle's booty clappin on ya grave

    Wow, looking great! Quick question and sorry if you already answered it. What is the difference between your system and just continues drip? I have done continues drip in hydroton. Not the greatest but have been reading that a lot of people not like hydroton either. Just wonder since I have...

    Feed, Feed, Water required in Canna Coco?

    Every watering. I have never come across a grower that doesn't get good runoff and has great vigor. Can do it to some extent with organics, but thats a whole different topic. Canna recommends watering at every feeding, as if you use plan water can screw up the nutrient balance. Works great...

    Want to grow a tree!

    Just wonderning what strains everyone who grows big trees would recommend? Looking for something that is easy to get seeds of? (sorry don't know acronyms well so if it isn't to much trouble for fullnames that would be great). Quality is very important. Would like to keep flower time around 10...

    60/40 Coco/Sunshine#2 Question?????????

    I ran a coco, sunshine organic mix. Worked GREAT! for first few times. Just watered a few times with pureblend and ended up with some nice yields. Then I saw what was possible. Been using straight coco since. Have run up to 7 gal grow bags. Worked fine. Unfortunately it was a temp setup...

    which nutrients

    Run canna, floranova, and pureblend the most, as well as others. All worked well. Since running 100% RO had to supplement with calmag. Used 101 different additives. I just ended up making my own. Took what they use in the greenhouse, tailored it to give the plants what they like. Cheap...

    Coco trees (MPB style lighting)

    Wow great thread. I was thinking of doing very similar to you blackcat. I was going to root in 50/50 perlite coco, pot into 1 gals and slowly decrease the perlite till finally potting in 100% coco in ten gals. Was hoping then to just water one or two times a day. I have only done just coco...

    Dizzle's booty clappin on ya grave

    Just got caught up on the thread. Looks great! Was going to run 50/50 coco perlite for cutting then decrease perlite with each potting till I ended up with straight in the last pot coco. Might give the 4:1 perlite/vermiculite a try. Have had great results with coco. I have done drip in the...
