Starting my first coco grow, I quickly learned how crucial managing pH and EC is. I initially used the Aptus Extreme nutrient schedule, but as a beginner not yet familiar with these products, it might not have been the ideal choice. This led to a bit of nutrient burn and confusion on my part. Things significantly improved when I shifted closer to the Pro nutrition schedule. From this experience, I learned it's helpful to begin with a simpler nutrient plan and gradually work up to more complex schedules like Aptus Extreme.
