Gotcha started grow question 4 years ago
The biggest problem I have growing in coco is that autoflowers don't tolerate the nutrient manufacturers feeding schedules. I went and got the Canna feeding schedule for coco and it burnt my plants. Anyone know of a schedule specifically for auto's?

Try this for a water / feed schedule for coco, forget any half strength or half assed rule like that, get a TDS/EC meter an use that, take this as a guide.
Week 1: 0.6 EC (300 PPM) , focus on cal/mag (or similar).
Week 2: 0.8 to 1.0 EC (400 to 500 PPM).
Week 3 and rest of veg: 1.2 to 1.4 EC (600 to 700 PPM.
Flower: 1.4 to 1.8 EC (700 to 900 PPM)
I'm giving you ranges because different strains will like different nute strength, also different light setups will affect this also. Like the nutrient requirement for a micro grow is different from a plant under 1000W.

Start by 1/4 then go slowly to 1/2, if plant does not show signs of nutrients burn try 3/4 !

Yes 1/4 to 1/2 strength depending on size

Most people go with either half or a quarter of what the manufacturers say
