Coco Hempy Bucket Advice Please

Hi Guys,

 

I'm about to start a coco hempy bucket grow. I'm going with 5 litre buckets with clay balls in the res, caana coco pro and vitalink coir max for hard water.Ph 7.5 ec 0.6 very high amounts of calcium in my water. I'm going to start feeding with rootstim and a quarter strength nutrients. I have Blue cheese clones rooted in 3 inch pots in soil ready to go. I have a few questions. Do I soak the coco fully and create a reservoir then water to run off or do I just water regularly around the rootball until roots hit the bottom? Do I need any other additives? Buddy, pk13/14, big bud, overdrive etc.

 

Many Thanks

I don't do coco but I know a man who does hempy... @Arthur Mix knows his hempys and his green.

 

Hope you don't mind the tag mate :yinyang:

Put your clones in the hempy bucket and water with nutrients every feed at the correct ph and ec and off you go. One thing is it's summer and temps are going to get high so you need to watch for any root problems. I never run a hempy in the summer I keep them for winter.

Toke...

Yes you water till run off out the hole , preferably so no bubbling as happens when it’s first draining. I use hempies for years and never had root issues wether summer or not . I also use five litre and just water once daily . 
As for additives I only use nitrozyme and roots excel my base is Maxigro and Maxibloom

Thanks for the replies guys, does the coco have to be fully wetted when I place the clones in it?
