    Literally thousands of coco growers.

    With seeds pot in small pots with coco. Treat it like soil to start, wet dry periods. Don't use nutrients till the baby leaves start to yellow then follow schedule for seedlings and cut dose in half. Once roots are established you can pot up and start watering more frequently. I like to allow 10-20% run off, it helps prevent build up of salts. Plus it also draws in more oxygen to the roots when the run off exits the pot. I used to use full strength as recommended by nutrient charts but find 2/3rd is a good level for anything bigger than seedling, you can ramp it up once you know your strain.
    I don't like to let plants sit in their own run off because some coco can have a very high EC run off, it depends on how well washed and buffered the coco is, that varies from bagged stuff to Dehydrated block.
    Have a bottle of cal/mag at hand, it can lock up calcium but most coco specific nutrients contain less K and more Calcium, its good to have the bottle there should you need to use it. Some folks run it at 1ml per litre the whole grow. I only use it if I find I need it.

    Its up to you how often you water with a good root zone, every other day - twice a day, whatever works for you.

    PH to 5.8.

    Sounds like fun, for my mother's I use soiless Promix HP in fabric pots with bottom feed trays. Works great lots of oxygen for roots and air pruned from fabric pots .. close as you can get to hydroponics and excellent results if flowering in this style of growing. It has a similar PH range as DWC does.

    IME coco retains a lot of water, almost as much as soil, so I wouldn't recommend 100% coco unless possibly if your running airpots. Smartpots or containers I would recommend rocks or hydroton on the bottom and perlite or hydroton mixed throughout. Do a search on "chow mix."

    I use royal gold tupur, it's a coco mix. You can use it straight out of the bag. Ph every watering/feeding, and once the roots are 1 week old, in a solo cup, don't let them dry out. You can water multiple times a day & end up with a impressive harvest, from a cup! Not saying it's the best but if you wanted to experiment. Nutes are in every watering. Ph/ppm meters are cheap and will affect your yields, for the better!
    Easy auto waterer:
    A 18 gal tote with airstones and a 396 ecoplus pump into a https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B004RUJ2OE/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o04_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1. I made some halos out of 1/4" flexible water line, drilled 4 tiny holes & connected them to the manifold. Adjust the flow to get a little runoff, in one minute. Now plug your ecoplus into one of these, https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B004LP1FKY/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o00_s01?ie=UTF8&psc=1. Program as many feedings as needed. Catch your runoff in a tote & toss every day.
    Good Luck.

    Don't over look Basement mix by Royal gold. So far I like it better than FFOF.
