coco coir

  • Good morning everyone! So I spent the day installing and upgrading a new add-on for AFN that effects our vendor and breeder forums. It's the same setup that we are using on High of the Tiger, but we didn't realize it would effect members a bit differently here on how it's been received.

    The major benefit of the add-on is that it allows breeders/vendors a global calendar (that they add their own events to,) a group media gallery, group discussion area, an information/about tab, and a few other goodies that should make the experience overall a better one.

    One major caveat to point out, the new groups (where you see the overlay) unfortuantely *REQUIRE* you to join them in order to post in them. This is done by design of the software (and I understand why,) however it's been requested to see if we can circumvent this somehow. I will inquire to the developer to see if it's an option available or one that can be added to future versions. So to be clear, you MUST JOIN the group to be able to post and reply, even if your existing threads were there before. We apologize for this minor inconvenience but it's a one-time deal and then it's back to business :-)
  • Hey we're testing out our new Raffle/Giveaway software and wanted to invite you all to try it out with us for a chance to win a Smokin' Screws pipe screen!

    This will be for USA-based growers only (to start,) and the only requirements are 25 minimum post count to put in an entry (which you can do once per hour!)

    How do you ideally precharge coco coir?

    I think I used nutes+calmag before. Might buy+use Greenleaf Megacrop for the run, so this will be included as one. You go til it wastes in any size pot you're starting in right? Then leave it for 24 hrs before you plant the seeds for germ? How long must you wait to feed them again when the...

    anyone using Coco Coir Cubes

    Hi Guys/Gals, I have started a company selling coco coir cubes, trying to evaluate how many people on the site are actually using the Jiffy products, if the percentage is high and within the uk we could give great discounts for AFN members. Hopefully not breaking any forum rules here.
