  3. Keka Harris on May 30, 2022 at 7:42 am

    I think with coco ya want a pre amended coco with sme nutes in for veg, then just use a basic bloom. Feed and then a pk booster can produce sme good buds man, I agree white shark etc is great

  4. Dave E on May 30, 2022 at 7:43 am

  5. ståle hansen on May 30, 2022 at 7:45 am

    As long as u have drain off…. Can u really over water coco?

  6. Mark Mitchell on May 30, 2022 at 7:45 am

    Didn’t think you could overwater Coco . Feed it every day that where you’re giving it oxygen every day as well

  7. Byron Buchanan on May 30, 2022 at 7:45 am

  21. Sergio Granados on May 30, 2022 at 7:56 am

    You can’t really say you just need a little nutrients cause it all depends on temperature, light intensity…

  22. Tom Choi on May 30, 2022 at 7:57 am

    Sooooo many knowledge nuggets this was awesome

  26. The420chemist on May 30, 2022 at 8:06 am

    Hi guys love your vids very informative.I’ve been growing for abt 22 yrs, but recently been using coco.I’m using organics Gaia Green, my mix is coco wit earth worm castings an Gaia, I dont hav any probs but is there anything i cud do or add to enhance my grow in veg an flower. Thank you an keep up the good wrk.

  27. Robert Threm on May 30, 2022 at 8:06 am

    I saturate 5 in 6 times a day that’s a flood and drain. The difference is each time it drains it sucks new oxygen to the roots. But if you guys when you water you should have an aerator also

  28. WinstonAveTv on May 30, 2022 at 8:06 am

    Canna Coco brick was the first Coco I used…I amended it…it was my best grow…but I have to drive far to get it the brick or bag…I like the bag also…but at my local store I get fox farm coco loso…I add a few dry nutes with ewc

  29. Reded Vega on May 30, 2022 at 8:08 am

    “Here let me put some more on.” Moron 😂🤣

  30. Jordan Sweet on May 30, 2022 at 8:11 am

    I’m definitely going to coco

  31. Fred C on May 30, 2022 at 8:13 am

    I didnt know he was the owner of recharge thats whats up! Love his input in ppls grows

  32. Alex Taylor on May 30, 2022 at 8:14 am

    this is an amazing chat great info interesting guy i will def recommend to other people !

  33. Brad Simi on May 30, 2022 at 8:16 am

    Coco for life… just started amending with recharge… holy fuck! Ty ty ty. Enviro on point. Sealed up co2 etc etc vero 29se 3500k cobs etc etc… Thanks for this vid, although canna is the shit. It grows the most clean frosty yummy gooey dank ive ever been able to produce. Top shelf (85% of the time, im not perfect i get lazy too amd coco is unforgiving in that aspect) hitting 29% ranges. (Tested 5 years ago) Maybe more who knows? So idk im liking the canna nutes… one con is color production. Hard to acheive deep purps. Believe me ive tried it all. Again im not perfect probably not doing SOMETHING right. But i refuse enhancers. Out here in cali its funny, no color no sale idc if you have 32% potency. Anyways, A & B ryzo zyme cali magic
    And epsom salt liquified so easy… the coco coir not so much. They claimed 20 L bags and was only getting 2/3< of that. Cmon canna you were ripping us off. Fact. Ok didnt come on here to talk negatively. Loved the vid, i dont 100% agree on all fronts but dont 100% disagree either. I just cant get over the recharge lmao. Wow! Ok ill just say it. I could never not ph. And it is obviously my lack of understanding how recharge amends the coco, even though i rewatched that part of the cast 100 times and looked into it a bit elsewheres. Cant find anything that supports not ph’ing using recharge. Probably not looking in the right areas. I understamd that was not the point he was trying to make however, he did get ‘"lazy". Ill leave it at that, Im missing something. Anyways great vid and with this cast no reason for trash indoor anymore. Finally have some competition! 😅 jp i do it because i believe in medicine, my mom had cancer, survived, but thats why i started because it made her able to eat under intense kemo. Many healing factors. Great info thank you both so much.

  34. Iron indica on May 30, 2022 at 8:18 am

    I just store my blue lab ph pen in a cup of tap water to make sure it never drys out.

  35. James Hale on May 30, 2022 at 8:18 am

  48. Ako on May 30, 2022 at 8:38 am

    Do you add the nutrient water to the reservoir or just top feed to fill the gap? And should this style be flushed at any time?

  49. Jordan Sweet on May 30, 2022 at 8:39 am

    Coco worm castings perlight or nature’s living soil with gia green 284 and 444
