Hey all, I'm guessing a lot of you have heard the myth that you can't replace Peat with Coco in supersoil. I've always wondered about this, I know a bit about Cation exchange Capacity (that of coco being relatively low) and understand why you couldn't expect nutes to stick to straight coco... But, when building an amended soil, even with peat, alot of people add humus of some sort (EWC, Compost, etc.) which should, in theory at least, increase the CEC of the mix as whole, right? At least I think that's how it should work. I've done quite a bit of research but I'm no PhD. I had always had a nagging question in my head about this... Couldn't you just heavily amend the coco with something like EWC or another humus source to increase it's CEC? Eventually I gathered soil building material, did my first round of no-til in an outdoor veggie bed with amended pro-mix , a couple small bricks of coco, and a little bit of Foxfarms Ocean Forest. It worked fantasticly! I was so excited that I was actually doing it! I was really proud watching them grow all summer, knowing they were thriving because of the work I had put in. Then we moved, and due to our ex-landlord being a dickhead and having questionable mental stability, I didn't bother going back for my dirt, which I was originally going to re-use. To make a long story shorter, We go into our new place towards the end of summer, and I ran out of peat. I still had some coco and castings, so I said screw it, do it to it! I've gotten through a couple grows using the amended coco without any major issues to speak of, aside from one plant with a Ca deficiency (That was before I picked up Roots Org. Elemental) and the small population of fungus gnats that are still hanging on from my air-pot experiment (Air-pots with amended soil is like Fungus Gnat Heaven, I always top with Gnat nix but obviously they had more than just the top open to them in the air-pots). Yield could definitely improve, but I attribute some of that to my hesitance to make too hot of a soil, and some Seasonal Affect/Depression I've been dealing with (along with some other life issues) have really put a drag on me this winter, especially the last couple months, I'm sure they would've benefited from a few nute and compost teas but it was something I never got around to. Hopefully my mood will improve when I get some sunshine back in my life and can spend some time out in the veggie/flower garden. So has anyone else ever had reasonable success using amended coco? I'd love to hear you're stories and opinions on the matter.
