Hi everyone
I’ve been mixing my coco coir I added some cal mag and perlite.I put a lil worm castings for growth bat guano and bone meal for phosphate . I mixed it about 3-4 times then I let it sit.
So after buffering 2-4 times can I let it sit until I transplant??
Please help!!
my plants look healthy but I’m not sure they will okay for flowering.

can I pick your brain and ask why did you choose to amend your coco with those ?

Well I know that there’s perlite in the coco but I understand those other nutrients like the bone meal and worm castings are good for those macro nutrients, such as nitrogen and phosphorus. Really I’m a newbie and I’m trying anything. I’m using fox farm big bloom and grow big and I’m only watering ever 3 days or whenever I see the top of the medium dry. The coco does the job so it’s probably no need to add what I am but trial and error. I haven’t gone wrong since I started and this is my 3rd grow. I believe if you pay attention to any deficiencies and ensure your plants are getting the correct amount of nutrients and ph your water, your plants are gonna grow regardless. Hope this helps.

Sounds like you are borderline soil growing. Personally I would try to get some peat moss to cut with the coco to build a nice tilth and to bring the pH down but it sounds like you got a good plan.

Okay good deal. So when you say tilth that means combine and mix some peat moss before I transplant? Also, should I keep my coco wet or can it stay moist until I’m ready to move my plants? I’m in week 3 I think (passed seedling stage) so it shouldn’t be too much longer. Thanks for the comments!

Once you add biology to coco via the castings, you essentially are growing in soil and the microbes will breakdown the coco. Personally, I would stash some coco by itself to the side for the first week of seedling stage then introduce the roots to biology. It can overwhelm a small seedling quick.

If this is inside it may stink for a week or two and offgas bad stuff like ammonia

So now that I have my seedlings in their coco (just the medium) I possibly add some peat moss as well then maybe rinse the medium one last time but I transplant. Obvi, I’m not ready to transplant but I should probably start topping correct?

What type of coco coir are you using? I used to use the fiber time but I found after a while it didn't seem to hold as much water or air as I thought should and kept getting finer and finer which in my opinion is actually destroying a very fabric of the medium by making it to fine so I had to switch to Coco chips Chucky don't break down quickly whole lots of air and retain water quite well.. But I'm not sure why you're letting it sit as you say? I have been mixing Happy Frog soil 50/50 with Coco chips originally I was doing 1/3 teaspoons of heavy soil to wind scoop of Coco fiber but it wasn't draining as quickly as I wanted so I did a little research and found out it's a 50-50 mix is just fine after all no matter how much soil potting mix whatever your girls are going to suck all the nutrients out of it anyway that's why you're going to be adding your own nutrients so I'm able to stretch my Happy Frog complete blend potting mix a little further oh, happy frog has everything in it but I do ad a little bit of worm casting and bat guano... when you're living on an old man fixed income as I am every ounce counts but as for letting it sit for a transplant or anything like that I see no reason but don't misunderstand me if you have heard or feel better about letting your amended Coco coir or buffered Coco coir as you call it dash – – sit and meditate or stew itself together by all means take the time and make your beef stew ! Time isn't a commodity that I can't afford to waste a my age I might be here today and gone tomorrow but I just mix the stuff together and then either transplant or plant I don't make stew he does that on it's own while the plant is growing! But it's somebody from here tells you make stew do it I'm not trying to tell you to do anything you don't want to do! but remember Coco coir in any form is going to lock up some of your nutrients I can't tell you which ones off the top of my head but it will prevent some of them from getting through as easily I use it mainly for water retention and a i r but I also use grow bags I need as much water retention as I can hang on to and air is always good also please remember you don't have to listen to anything I say I could just be an old man living in his basement and rambling on and on and on use your own judgment take everything you hear tow it into a bucket and then do your homework investigate investigate I know that sounds like... Well why the hell did I come here and ask questions then? I thought I was doing my homework and my investigation , well no matter what you hear you she still check it out further if you can, or just do what you're told it's your choice

Oh yeah that's right I forgot to tell you if you're going to be making coyote stew I believe you are leaving out one very important ingredient which is used as a catalyst for your microbes in I believe almost every soil blend yes the soil skewers that use microbes also use non sulfated blackstrap molasses as food for the Little boogers I don't know if they use Blackstrap but they do use unsulfured molasses I use Blackstrap from House of herbs which is also non-GMO and suitable for vegans

Well here she goes she was a hard case and didn't want to go anywhere until I gave her a hat little did she know I just pointed that hat is actually her brand new pair of underwear she'll figure it out here in a few minutes when I force her out of the ones she's wearing that is just too small for her to continue on her very short Journey... well if you think life is short and yes it is a very short but imagine if you were her and nobody made a clone of you💥💨💀

If you feed with nutes, then you should not be adding anything to the soil. It will double up on things and cause lockouts of other nutes.
If you feed totally organic, then you can use a good soil and add "Fish Sh!T" and Recharge. That's ALL you really need. More is overkill.

The plant looks really good. I would add mycorrhizae fungus next time to give you more roots.

Thank you for the suggestion I'll have to go and get some mechanized fungus and now I'm down to 2% again thank you:-) and now at least I have a new look on air pruning and grow bags along with not getting root bound due to air pruning The Roots:-) :-) :-) I knew about airplane but I didn't know about it stopping rootbound
