- Product Q&A
Botanicare Cocogro Grow Media, 1.75 cu ft loose Bag - Pallet of 65 Bags Questions & Answers
Q: Do I need to buffer or rinse Cocogro before planting?
A: All Botanicare coco is pre-buffered and rinsed before packaging to eliminate any salts. If you do wish to rinse Cocogro, use R.O. water and a 2:1 ratio of water to coco by volume to flush the soil before planting.
Q: What is the natural pH of Cocogro? Do I need to add a buffer such as limestone to adjust the pH?
A: Coco coir has a natural pH of 5.7 - 6.5. Adding buffers such as limestone or oyster shell is unnecessary. When growing in Cocogro it is important to always adjust the pH of your nutrient solution to 5.8 - 6.2 before watering.
Q: How much water do I need to use to hydrate the different size bales of coco?
A: Each 5kg bales requires 3 - 4 gallons of water to fully hydrate depending on slight variances between bricks.
Q: How is Cocogro processed? Why don’t I need to add calcium?
A: Cocogro is naturally aged, buffered with calcium nitrate, and hydrated with our proprietary fulvic acid, humic acid, and trace mineral treatment.
