Thanks Chilidude, as always I appreciate the advise. Will for sure look at the new A&B mix you're using now if I do go down the pure coco coir route.
 

 

I did test the B'cuzz coco a+b nutrients back in the year 2016 for one of my plants and it did great with it. They are doing great this year too using the same nutrient, so far so good i guess.

I'll give coco coir a go next season. I'm going to try a few different methods to see what works best for me. Not sure where I could get air-pots around here though.

 

 

I am sure you will find one of those Chinese copies somewhere.

But the non topped one have pods and the topped plant doesnt have pods, right?

I love coco coir, also, but it took me 2 full seasons to figure out all of its quirks.  There can be little to no argument that peat will grow better plants with a fraction of the hassle - thus making it the ideal choice for beginners.  But once you figure out coco coir, you can grow just as well, but with a media that is reusable for a far longer time. 

 

Coco coir gets seasoned with that calcium in the first growing season, then it is even better in the next season.
