Gold label coco a+b fertilizer

26 July 2018 - 10:04 AM

I noticed this Gold label coco a+b fertilizer a while ago, when i gathered various info about coco coir growing. Gold label is a known company already for their coco coir stuff, so i pretty much bet their coco coir fertilizer would be a good stuff to try out for chili growing.

 

Fertilizer info:

 

Total Nitrogen (N): 6%
Phosphate P (P2O5): 2%
Potassium K (K2O): 8%
Calcium (Ca): 5%
Magnesium (Mg): 2%

 

The chelated micro elements guarantee optimum availability in a wide pH range. This stuff costs bit under 60 euros for the 2x5litre containers, but even so it is still far cheaper than my Floramicro/floramato combo.

 

Have anyone here tried this stuff to grow chilis before as this stuff is available in both America/Europe?


Bido tacana, Bulo-bulo and PI 215734 chili plants

24 July 2018 - 02:27 AM

I was thinking of exploring that Peru/Bolivian region for some interesting chili plants for next year's growing.

 

If any of you that have grown Bido tacana, Bulo-bulo and PI 215734, what is your opinion about these ones?


canadian xpress ultimate coco bloom one part coco fertilizer

17 July 2018 - 12:59 PM

Upon discussion about different fertilizers for coco coir, another chili grower mentioned about this stuff called canadian xpress ultimate coco bloom and said it is a good one part fertilizer.

NPK: 4.0-0.6-4.0 and it seems the product is made for the uk market.

Chilli focus fertilizer in coco coir growing?

13 July 2018 - 06:20 AM

Chilli focus(NPK: 3.0 – 1.0 – 4.4) is a very popular chili fertilizer in Europe and does have a lot of good reviews. The 5 litre container is rather cheap, actually it is around the same price as the Hesi coco stuff.

 

My question now is, have any of you used Chilli focus in coco coir growing and how did it go?


Hesi coco 1-component fertilizer for coco growing

18 April 2018 - 12:31 AM

Hey folks, i just found this pretty interesting 1-component coco fertilizer for easy chili growing in coco coir:

Info i copied from the website of the fertilizer maker:

 

HESI Fertiliser for COCO - HESI COCO

HESI COCO is THE fertiliser for growth and bloom on coco substrates. Like any HESI fertiliser is also HESI COCO thanks to complex-binding substances stabilized and free of unnecessary fiber.
 

HESI COCO is not an A & B supplement, the A & B components are combined in one bottle.

HESI COCO contains both organic and mineral nitrogen. Nearly all trace elements are stabilized in protective complexes. HESI COCO is enriched with vitamins and other vital elements for the bloom. In this way, a perfect balance is created in the system and a fast build up a healthy microflora.
IT is quite possible that the EC value of HESI COCO is somewhat lower than other coco supplements because no salts have been added, which only increase the EC value (fillers, fibers).

 

To avoid overdosing, it is important that the maximum dosage of 50 ml / 10L is not exceeded.

 

 

NPK:

3-4-5

Nitrogen N 3,0%, Phosphorus 3,9% P2O5,
Potassium 5,1 % K2O.

Other: magnesium, calcium,
sulphate and trace elements: iron, manganese, zinc,
copper, boron, molybdenum, plus vitamins
B1, B2, B6, plant sugars, amino acids and enzymes.

 

 

The NPK values are actually pretty balanced to make the chili plants grow stronger stems, because it doest have too much nitrogen in it.

 

This is actually pretty cheap stuff in Europe if you order 5-10 litre containers of the stuff. I actually might be tempted to try this stuff out because it is so cheap and it seems to work for chili growing according to few customers reports i found.

 

I would want to make coco coir chili growing as easy as humanly possible, so what is not to like if this stuff actually works.
