Coco Coir and Perlite Mix Instructions?

by Mark
(Cincinnati)

I followed the instructions on this site and used a 50/50
mix of coco coir and perlite. But, it did give specifics
like 50/50 by volume, by weight, wet or dry.

I did it 50/50 by dry volume. Put two inches of coco coir
and 2 inches of perlite in a 5 gallon bucket then shook
well.

It looked like a good mix while it was dry, now that the
coco coir has hydrated, their doesn't seem to be much
perlite.

Could you provide more details on this grow medium?

Thanks,

Mark

Answer from Stella/Simon:

Hi Mark,
so sorry, I guess we could have made the directions more clear. That 50-50 mix should be with already rehydrated coco coir. We always use the bricks, so this would not have been an issue.

Once again, sorry for the misunderstanding!

Hope this helps!

I used the compressed brick, also. But, did the
50/50 mix with it dry. This is my first attempt
at hydroponics.

Reconstitute it first to full volume, then mix 50-50 with perlite.
