So, how to grow in coco and which way do you go with it..
Lots of small plants, or fewer plants but grown larger, or Scrogging method. pinching and bending training your plants.
Second, How many plants for your space you’re growing in. Let’s start by saying 1 metre by 1 metre space. This would count for 4 larger plants, 6 medium or 9 small plants.
Using 20 litre to 25 litre pots with coco and growing in a scrogging method.
Growing plants out to around 12 to 14 inches tall in the first vegetative stage, then you would pinch out or pinch and bend the top of your plants. If you have pinched and bent over the top stem, you’ll need to pin it down with a soft garden tie… (Not to much, loosely pin it). This will then allow for side shoots to grow out and plants to bush up. In the scrogging method, you’ll need to place fine netting over the top of you canopy.
This netting should have square holes of 3” by 3” spacing. Now, in the vegetative stage, you’ll need to grow out all side shoots and some top shoot. Pinch and bend them all, grow them so you fill all the holes within your netting area. See this Video
Each one of these shoots will become a cola, top flowering bud…
How to grow in coco, simple feeding plan.
You can use any nutrients you prefer, but this method works very well with the Growth technology, Ionic.
It’s simple and very easy to use.
There is a one part base feed for Grow and Bloom, a PK Boost, Liquid Silicon, and any Enzyme you prefer, Cannazym, Shogun Zenzym, and of cause you should use a root booster in the vegetative and part of the flowering stage.
You’ll be looking at around 3 to 4 weeks vegetative growth, then around 8 to 9 weeks flowering growth. The water tank or water butt, should be around 50 litres, this should cover around 10 plants for a weeks growth and feeding.
How to grow in coco, watering and feeding your plan.
Mixing up your water and nutrients tank, is very simple and should be kept simple, there is no need to over complicate it.
In the veg stage, fill you water tank with fresh water, add your base nutrients to the water. Ionic is around 7ml per litre of water. In the first week you can go half strength, depending on plants health and size. Add a little root booster, and liquid silicone and enzyme. Check your PH levels it should be around 6.0 to 6.2, if it’s a little higher add some PH down or PH up if its low and your done.
DO NOT FEED THE SAME DAY, LET IT SIT FOR 24 HOURS BEFORE FEEDING.
This is to allow any chlorine to evaporate out from the water first before feeding.
Then simply feed every two days with around 1 to 2 litres of the water and nutrients. If your pots are on the dry side add more, if the feel more on the wetter side, give them a little less, But always keep them damp. Continue this feeding plan through the vegetative stage.
How to grow in coco Flower feeding.
Simply, it’s the same as above, however, once you start the flowering stage. You’ll be adding the same feed amounts as above. But you’ll also be adding the PK Booster to your water tank and nutrients. Again continue this feeding plan throughout the flowering stage to around 7 weeks.
Then, you can completely stop the feeding and start the flushing phase. Flushing is done to washout all feeds and chemicals from your plants and flower buds. This also makes your buds pop and swell up as they take on more water.
Along with create a very nice taste in your final produce.
There you have the very basic’s of how to grow in coco.

More lighting choices can be found in the lighting categories section within our shop.
Pot and Sources.
Keep the enzyme going in here as this will keep roots healthy.
Humidity and temperature
Controlling the humidity is such an important part of your grow space, as moulds and mildews can become a big problem.
What is the right humidity for a grow space.
So, when in the vegetative stage you can have the humidity a little higher at around 60% to 70% this is good. Once you switch to flowering you’ll want to start lowering it. Between 40% to 50% is great, but in the last 3 weeks lower it and keep it around the 40% mark.
Temperature is good at around 75F to 78F. If you go higher you’ll end up with plants stretching and flowers will not form, yields could be lower. Cutting and clones can deal with it a little higher at around 80F, and humidity around 60% to 70%. Dehumidifiers and Humidiifier units will help you keep things where they should be.
