Investigatory methods

Hi there,


Anyone know anything about aeration of roots in a coco mix?

Any particular times that are best, night time vs day time, once a week vs few hours a day...


I am wondering if theres too much air being pumped as I can't imagine it being too good if that causes heat build up in the plant medium.

What is the optimal temperature for the coco medium? I put a temperature probe in and the pot is currently 24°C.

Is the medium too warm?

Coco should allow for decent aeration of the roots. I don't think you need to do anything else. 24c is perfect!  Are you asking what time is optimal for watering?

No but that might be the next thing as I am having issues over the plant and its not happy.


I am asking about how much or how often the roots need air.

Do some run all the time, my friend runs one day a week.
