You have never grown in Coco, so you don't understand it. I have been growing in Coco for a VERY long time. Anyone who knows anything about Coco knows that plants in Coco thrive by being fed multiple times per day. You get faster growth in Coco when you feed more often, and less amounts. You don't have to feed heavy, just often. Plants in Coco eat up nutes like hydro. For Organic growers using big ass pots you only have to water every other day because it stays wet longer and you don't feed them like Coco with nutes. Coco is Hydro with a medium. Soil is organic. They are different. Different growing styles require different feeding methods. There are advantages and disadvantages of any growing style. I prefer multiple feedings in small pots of Coco for my Autos. Someone else might like 7 gal Soil grows that water every Few days. Who's is better? Mine for me. Yours for you. Experiments prove a lot. I have done many. Find what you like for yourself. I can promise one thing, I know a little about Growing in Coco. I have done thousands of plants. Feeding often is the key to rapid growth. Not feeding daily in Coco is starving your plants.I'll add one more thing. Almost every reason why a person turns from soil is poor watering. The world of coco is alien to me. I've seen it done many times and I'm always left wondering why.
I hear people say the following all the time, Coco dries out faster and more wet/dry cycles lead to more production. That is only true for soil. I'm looking to go as long as the plant will allow me to go between waters. Not the shortest. Is kind of like when I hear people say that a plant is a heavy feeder. That is not a good plant characteristic to have. It just makes you feel like you're doing something.
