Buddha’s Tree Coco A&B is a base nutrient specifically for use with plants grown in Coco. It supplies all the basic nutrients required by plants for strong, healthy growth in all stages of the plant’s development.
So many customers have been waiting for years for Buddha’s Tree to release a base nutrient designed for plants that are grown in Coco, and they’ve finally had their prayers answers. Buddha’s Tree have mostly only specialised in making additives, so it is refreshing to finally see that they’re now selling the full set.
Designed especially to be used with Coco substrates, this base nutrient uses chelated nutrients for easier and faster uptake and absorption of nutrients.
Using Buddhas Tree Coco A&B:
Fill your hydroponic system reservoir with water and add equal amounts of Coco Part A and Coco Part B to the tank to achieve the required strength and mix well. Use a syringe or beaker for a more accurate measurement, and a CF/EC/PPM meter check the TDS (nutrient strength). Add more Coco A+B under desired strength is achieved, then add any additives and boosters you wish to use and mix well.
Adjust the pH of the solution to the required level using pH up or down as necessary. We recommend the use of a pH meter such as the Horticare pH meter to help accurately set the pH to the required level. Make sure to avoid contact with skin and eyes and wear suitable protective clothing.
Both parts of a 2-part nutrient are designed to be used together in equal amounts. Using the nutrients in unequal amounts will result in a nutrient solution which is not properly balanced, which will ultimately lead to your plants suffering from deficiencies.
As with all nutrients, boosters and additives, never mix them together in their concentrated form (i.e. straight out of the bottle). Always add each nutrient, booster or additive to your reservoir or feed water in turn, giving the solution a good stir to mix it in before adding the next one. If both parts are added at once they clump together and the plant cannot absorb them both properly.
When adding Coco A+B to your reservoir, use 2-4ml per litre of water. 4ml A + 4ml B per litre per adult plants should have an approx. EC reading of 1.6.
