Growing in Coco organically opinions?

How is the microbe/enzyme life in coco?

Should i feed each watering? With Runoff?

How long does organice nutes take to breakdown?

Currently adding Microbe/Enzyme additive to my feeding to help with organic nutes to break down?

You have some very in-depth questions that maybe different for every nute brand you buy but in general microbes live for up to two weeks. As for the speed at which nutes break down I’m not sure as it would depend on a lot of factors and exactly what you are asking for me to answer. So in my humble opinion you could cut back the microbe use to once a week with out having any adverse affects

1. There's a reason non soil media are called inert media (this includes coco), because they hold no beneficial microbe, it does not compost, so it can not support any microbiology. Microbes feed on organic matter, which is what soil is.
2. Yes you are supposed to do feed each watering, with the appropriate EC/PPM level according to your plant current age/development stage.
3. Always get 20% to 30% run off, this is in order to prevent salts from accumulating in the coco.
4. There are supposed to be organic nutes for coco. I dont really know how they work.

I'd like to know more on this also I'm doing organic on my next grow the one in Coco i will be feeding the same as with none organic nutes so i will be feeding every day aiming for 30% runoff i should imagine they would break down quicker with being organic will be good go to find out more
