We show you a quick method to measure your coco coir’s EC to make sure that you are using the purest product available. We compare Mother Earth with Ugro using reverse osmosis water. It’s worth pointing out that the best coco coir doesn’t always have the lowest EC—that’s because some manufacturers use buffering agents to aid with nutrient uptake—but this test gives you an initial “snapshot” of your coco growth media so you have some idea of what you’re dealing with.

    I go through about 100 bags of Mother Earth per month. Sometimes its 10ppm, sometimes its all the way up to 80.

    I also use a 2-1 ratio when doing my slurry tests.

    I run straight Coco in all of our plants and flush with just 100ppm cal mag 1x week. NO issues. We also don't water to runoff when feeding. 2yrs with this method and 2000 plants at all times always seem happy.

    As for Coco buffers. I hit my tables with SM90 at 2ml gal between harvest and 5ml gal of enzymes, 400ppm cal mag.

    you need COGr Buffer Agent to buffer the coco medium whit a ec level up to 1.5  its the best 
    pure coco its a no no

    I use mendo mix and it has amendments like sea bird guano and all kinds of other things added to it and when ever I test my run off I get a reading of something crazy like 1000 ppm using clean water usually when I first start using the stuff. Is this high ppm possibly due to the amendments you think?
