Nutes for Coco

Hello everyone. First time grow running coco with perlite in a 5 gallon fabric pot.
Actually germinating the seed in coco as of now in a solo cup and it just popped today. What I need to know is what nutes to being feeding the plant and when to start. Also should I be okay using my tap water. Its definitely "hard" water but I don't know the ppm. High PH too but im PH downing it to around 6.
I just bought some Cal Mag but I was also thinking of getting some Canna Coco A & B from their nutrient line. Do i need the Cal mag if Im getting the Canna Coco A & B.
If you guys have any alternatives please let me know.
Thanks in advance

I still stick with good old GH nutes
Me too it works great and the feed schedule is easy..def ro hard water but I don't have to. Ph and ppm meters are a must,I keep backups. I was able to find a report from my water company that was on point. I do leave my jugs out 24 hrs to remove bleach. Good luck !

Atami bcuzz coco worked well for me. Trying veg+bloom by hydroponic research but the seems pricy now that I have realized you need to use a tone of the shit

They're all the same mate. You can go relatively cheap and still works fine

Unfortunately Scotts owns GH now, and they are the top distributor of the toxic product Round-Up in North America, so buying GH products supports death these days.

This is a good small cheap one, which you can find for under $100 online:

Probably true, but also true for buying and doing a lot of other things. Using peat for growing contributes to degrading peatlands contributes to global warming contributes to death.

Just something to keep in mind when not using certain products for ideological or activist reasons: the world is so complex and interconnected that it probably does not make a difference except for making oneself feel better.

I have this RO filter. Nice for small grows and the waste to clean ratio is good.

I'm just browsing the offering on Amazon. There are sets for as low as €50, and for €150 you get really good ones. Now I'm thinking about buying one, even though I don't need it. Consumerism :???:.

I'm another that swears by the jacks/Jr Peter's products. The Epsom isn't always needed, I just watch my plants.
