Default Hlp me out,anyone using botanic are cocogro blocks??

The website says it has been naturally aged, buffered with calcium nitrate, and hydrated with our proprietary fulvic acid, humic acid, and trace mineral treatment.
Some say they rinse it well for it has a ec reading that is very high,others say they use it and no problems what so ever.Some say transplant only,a few from seed.
Itll be my 1st grow in coco coir,after successful grows in soil now I'm here hesitant to start new beans in it.
I do want a more airy soil I was going to mix 40-40-20 of soil,coir and perrlite,but I may just add extra perlite to my soil mix and wait and use my free-be beans for new substrates.

To make it short anyone used botanicare 5l blocks??
I have no idea if they just changed the packaging and product for my packaging is different.

Using anything with a high ec reading,I'm just cautious of.

Coco is a lot less forgiving on feedings. It's like hydro and needs to be very specific. It can either reward you with very fast growth, or hurt you if your ph or ppms are off. You might do well to add some coco to your soil/perlite mix! Good luck.
Find the peace...

My supplies were lower than I thought.I need some more soil mix,perlite or vermiculite,and a big container for the whole mix.

Any idea how many gallons total I'll get after adding perlite, soil and 5l block of coir?

There's nothing wrong with botanicare. Ppm was close to 0 and Ive used coco for seedlings many times.
It must be competition bashing products on other forums?
