The coconut substrate is ideal for hydroponic crops and also for traditional crops both indoors and outdoors, but unlike traditional soil, coconut substrate has no nutrients, so you must add fertilizers with which to provide those nutrients, but be careful not to over-fertilize it and not burn it, it is a delicate balance but worth it. If you are a new grower you should start with another type of substrate, as coconut substrate has a slightly more advanced technical difficulty.
The virtues of coconut fibre are wide, but the main one is that it retains moisture very well, so if you grow in very hot climates it is a perfect choice.
Another advantage of using coconut substrate for your marijuana crops, is that it favors the development of stems, flowers and roots, because unlike traditional soil that is very compact, the coconut substrate maintains small pockets of air that favors root growth and therefore, the size of your plant will be greater and consequently directly, its productivity.
Thanks to the high composition of Lignina that composes the substrate of coconut, we will be able to reuse it for several cultures since it avoids the decomposition and favors the presence of beneficial microorganisms in the root zone.
One of the problems of using a coconut substrate is that it retains a lot of salts and therefore you will have to control the levels of PH and EC.
If what you are looking for is to increase the productivity of your indoor crop, and you don't mind reducing the quality of your marijuana a little bit, the coconut substrate is perfect. Discover in PevGrow, the different substrates of coconut that we have in our catalog.
