First time indoor make my own medium grower here. Since I had no idea what I was doing when i made my coco mix, I ask your opinions and advice. Keep in mind I dont know how to check ph. I have the +- chems for it but im clueless. PPM is even more of a mystery to me.

Anyway, heres what i did...

1.5 cubic feet coco coir
8 quarts peat moss
15 lbs organic worm castings
1.5 lbs rice hulls
7 quarts 3/8 pumice lava stones
1 gallon biochar with mycorrhizial fungus
1 gallon super soil organic concentrate
1.5 cups azomite trace minerals
3/4 cup happy frog all purpose fert
2 cups bat quano

almost accomplished 20 gallons. it was enough to fill my 3 5 gallons with enough for future top dressings

I just use coco and perlite. I don’t know for sure but normally organic and coco don’t work well together. But again I only use coco and perlite and then feed every time I water.

you made soil. this isn't coco. coco is an additive in your soil mix now. do not try to treat this as a coco grow otherwise you're going to have a ton of issues.

I grow in coco with vermiculite mixed in, I use the coco after the grow in my outdoor compost bin with leaves, grass etc.
cocco is cocco, soil is soil, coco is good to add to a clay soil or sandy soil it helps with moisture uptake!
helps to make the soil a better consistency for the plant to uptake nutrients.

cocco does not hold water or nutrients like soil. I basically recycle my pure coco grows for making my own soil mixes.

PH, watering cycle will be way different! In soil versus coco.
if you wait for coco to fully dry out, your plants will be thirsty.
coco is a good PH stabilizer, once dialed in!
not all plant food they sell gets the most out of coco grows.
sometimes there is a breaking in process.
my clones seem ready and eager to grow in coco.
sometimes plants from seed can be a little finicky at first in coco.

ha ha just laying out some years of using coco, be cool, be productive!

Day 44 from pop.

Accidentally did the first 3.5 weeks in 12/12.
A week or so at 18/6. Now it's at 20/4.

I clipped the fan leaves when the nodes developed their own fans.

It's my first grow so I'm really pushing my margin of error. I was going to start lst today. Again, probably the wrong answer

You made soil...also I'm pretty sure you have to (bake) that.. like a super soil. I could be wrong but I'm pretty sure
