Dru West: If you are a beginning grower, growing in soil or coco is the simplest way. Hydroponic systems like your old flood table can introduce a number of different variables that make learning more difficult. The fact that you have added perlite to your coco will cause you to have to water more often than if it was just straight coco. This is cool it just requires a bit more attention.
So be sure to adjust your pH and PPM levels before every watering. There are many affordable digital meters that will check both of these things for you so be sure to get one.
Check out my book The Secrets of the West Coast Masters: Uncover the Ultimate Techniques for Growing Medical Marijuana to learn our secrets on how to yield over a pound per plant in as little as a 4’x4’ space.
