Why organic nutrients do not work in coco

I'm having good success with coco and organic fertilizers. I think the key is adding CEC buffers like biochar, greensand, and compost/EWC (my mix is 10% combined biochar and EWC bv). Also coco seems to work best with slow release organic ferts like feather meal (for N) and granular minerals (rather than powdered). I also add a bit of composted chicken litter for the right microbes for breaking down feather meal.

Also need to keep things on the dry side. A water meter is essential imho.
