Led, jacks 321, coco, 1000ppm, drain to waste, ph is 5.8-6, co2 is 15000ppm, I add 0.25ml/L of silicate potassium, week one of flowering.

I don’t have non grow lights in this room so cant turn them off, but I adjusted the color of the picsC6A12D9B-7F79-44CC-973D-0C549AEA0F57.jpeg95C2DEC8-94E9-4A19-969A-C0383D8493FA.jpegBE258D48-E50E-44A0-9EBD-751006C2E3B0.jpeg

Very similar to my environment.
How often do you feed those girls in coco?

I had trouble when not feeding often enough.

My veg.

Feeding every 2-3 days when it gets dry-ish
Most feed coco at least once a day. Not feeding often enough can lead to nute imbalances.

This site helped me with feeds.

Yeah that was another thing i was going to say but im not a coco grower so i wasnt sure. Coco typically needs daily water/feed.

But if I feed once a day it’s going to stay too moist, it needs some time to dry down right? And I need a 5-10% runoff

Starter plants and early veg I let them dry back to encourage root growth.
Otherwise it's once a day minimum to provide a fresh balanced plate of nutes.
They explain in detail at cocoforcannabis.

What pot sizes are you using?

12 inch pots
You water until runoff?

I have a couple of stains going. One is a deep green, the other much lighter in color. I will have to try feeding more on the lighter ones.

Yes with some runoff. When I'm feeding multiple times per day, not all feeds cause runoff.
The top layer of coco is normally moist, never dry.

Simplistic but kinda whats going on... The fresh nutes are pushing out old nutes still in the coco. Oxygen in the coco is also refreshed.

Salt buildup = dry nutrient solution. That nasty white salt crust that builds up in our drip trays. Lol

I grow in 1 2 and 3 gallon. The smaller the pot, the more often I have to feed to prevent too much dry back.

That's one of the cons to running coco, the need to feed typically more often than soil.

Dont need to get dry in my experience, if in smaller pots I feed twice or even 3 times a day.
