    Hi there guys,

    I’m new to coco and needed advice. I’ve measured the E.C of the water I’m using which is 0.1.
    I added coco in a mug along with the water, the E.C shows 0.3.
    However, when I measure the E.C of the run off, it shows 1.4.
    I have not started the grow as I would like the E.C to be below 0.5 but I do not know where the extra figures are coming from.

    Any suggestions on how I can reduce the E.C of the run off or should I just go ahead with the grow?

    Just flush the hell out of the Coco, 3times x volume of the pot, and charge with some 0,4ec calmag..

    That being said, I've used 2.4ec shitty cocoblocks from the start and the plants just chugged along..

    I chased the same problem, (mid grow), when I first started using coco! I finally got it down, but since then I just don't worry about it! :headbang:
