    Do you wash or do anything to the coco before mixing it in? I'm going to be getting a brick very soon.

    I've never washed Botanicare coco. From reading their website, there is no need to. Also, most of the better brands ad buffers to the coco and you'll wash them out. I just drop mine in a 20 gallon tub and add 5 gallons of RO water with cal/mag. sometimes after it has abosobed the water, you may need to add a little more. Don't add too much water or then you have to darin it.

    I just buy it by the bag at any garden center, greenhouse, or even at hardware store. Dealing with fresh it just not worth it. its cheap

    Hey pop, sorry if this has been asked already but do you fill the entire pot with your final mix or just the bottom half and the top with potting mix. So much differing information around I am a bit confused. Is it possible to read too much?

    I have been exploring Jadam a natural farming practice from Korea, this is peasent farming so it is based on inexpensive natural ingredients. One additive is Jadam soil drench. To make you take a 5 gal bucket, or a 20 gal garbage can, for 5 gal boil 2 large potato till mushy soft. Place in mesh bag and immerse in 5 gal h20, Mush the potato till a white clouds of starch floats out. Now grab another mesh bag and go to the forest and grab a big hand full of leaf mold, that's the soil on the forest floor made by decomposing leaves. You should now have 5 gal water with 2 mesh bags floating in it. Let the bucket sit in a warm place foe several days, no air pump needed. After 4- 5 days you see a ring of small bubbles this is caused from bacteria and fungi eating the starch and farting. When the bubble ring begins to colaps all there food is gone and the bacteria numbers will decline. It is time to use this, as a soil drench and folder spray mix 30 parts water to 1part jadam juice.
    To make a simple fertiliser put about a gallon of jadam juice in a 5 gal bucket and add weeds and grass or even the fan leaves from ur plants, let brew for a week and again 30- 1.you can add more water and more weeds to keep ur brew going all summer. For minerals you can add sea salt or Himalaya salt. To feed my plants I added a week solution of 0-10-10 bloom nutes, kelp liquid,Epsom salts, can put a bit of molasses. This stuff tends to stink a lot.

    Interesting! Salt level is much lower though in Azomite. sodium chloride is not good for plants except in tiny amounts.
