It depends on the plants... no grow is the same.

I'd say go with like 400-600ppm to start every feed with runoff

Im gonna look this up right away thank you!
Look up Mr.Canuck he does a coco mix with some amendments and Gaia 4-4-4 with some pretty crazy results. Pretty much water only. But this needs to be treated a bit differently. No runoff and if you get your mixture wrong you will be fighting it all grow long.

I'm trying this: 35% Perlite, 35% Vermiculite, and 30% Coir. I've added Myco (because I have some( and some Azomite. We'll see how it goes. Haven't done soil-less in a long time, but... ;) Also, had some water beads, so, they went in as well. Nontoxic, of course.
This looks like exactly what im looking for. Have you had any plants in this yet? How is the drainage?

I just planted some and, I'll say the drainage is excellent. ;) It does hold moisture, but, we'll find out exactly how much later. Perlite and Verm hold moisture pretty well, they will wick it up from the bottom.
