I don't use nutes, I mostly use just water. I imagine you can mix with nutes though. I don't measure, I just squirt some into my chaplin sprayer. It's probably like a teaspoon in two gallons of water
So you just spray the top of the medium?

Bmc microbe-lift can be added by the drop to your jugs or res, i believe its 1-2 drops (per gal) but i use up to 5 (drops per gal) which is most definitely overkill but at these concentrations exact dose was hard for me to work out so i just went by what i have read people use in coco pots etc,. you want it to permeate your medium so all the gnat larvae eat it.

these fucking things are unstoppable. im about to ditch coco. fuck coco and fuck fucking fungus gnats.

perlite hempys? anyone ever use those? cant imagine theyd like perlite as much as coco. its like the perfect habitat for a fungus gnat family, coco....

foliar bti? no offence but why?
Literally have no idea why said that :/
I even went back and read through some of the comments thinking I got confused but I didn't really see anything that would pertain to foliar spray! Ha bong
Maybe switching from different threads?
But I've never foliar sprayed bti, nor would I recommend it... except that time I did above
There would be no point.

Good call out!

Edit... Maybe I was thinking he was talking about the chaplain sprayer?
Cause I mentioned that's what I use, so when he said do you just spray the top of the medium and I replied yes you can also use it for foliar.

That's the only thing I can make sense of.

oh yup

well either way i figured maybe you meant its safe to foliar, i mean it wont hurt your plant but its kinda..... whats weird is i looked it up after the fact as well and some hydro shop was saying to spray it and i was kind of laughing because they dont know what the heck it is obviously

Yeah I've used those before...If I remember correrctly you gotta have your drain 2" above the bottom of the container with water in the bottom or something or maybe that's another style....I only did it for one grow. Occasionally I try different styles I read about, not because I wanna change my style, I do it for the experience and to check it first hand.

I may as well try a perlite/verm classic hempy alongside my coco pots. im not done on coco im just feeling like theres got to be a better way and like you said, you gotta try it out.

any chance you had no gnats in hempys? or did you do coco hempys? lol

Hydroton at the bottom and coco up top.
Yeah I had some gnats, not crazy though.

Out of the styles I've grown in, living organic soil has blessed me with most fungus gnats. If I don't keep them in check, they'll explode quick!

One word-nematodes.
I grow in coco and as you say its the perfect enviroment for em coz cocos supposed to be kept wet the whole time but with a dose if cheap nematodes then another 2 weeks later and some sticky yellow traps they clear the fg right up.better than any pesticide.cheaper too probably

I had a few perlite Hempy containers on my veg table...they were 1.5 gallon round pots...they were doing great for a few weeks then it actually stayed too moist down at the bottom of the reservoir (on the bucket)...stems got purple...then I noticed tons of fungus gnats chillin in the medium..

Never have tried it but just though it sounds possible to use diotenacious (sp?) Earth around/ on top of soil or even just sprinkle it if plant was in veg...soap and some water works to dry bigger pests out but idk about little ones
