Hey all

right so i have a jar with 500g rye which is about 80% colonised

I have a couple  question about the ratio, will 1:4 be ok or could i go more
i was going to use a a strait coir
my question is, is it weight or volume? im sure its volume but i read on another site weight, and would it be dry volume or wet, as in would i wet the coir and then measure

also is it better to mix the coir with anything?

thanks all

You should read up more before starting bulk I would say because all your questions are very basic.
Having that said.

1:4 ratio is fine. You COULD go a lot higher but colonization would be slower.

The ratio is by volume and Its when you hydrated the substrate.

If Its better to mix the coir with something I can not answer because I do not have enough experience myself. People have awesome grows with only coir so for now Im sure you be satisfied with only that.

Edit - Here read ALL of this, this guy is awesome and very helpful!

volume and it's prepared substrate so wet. you dont need to mix coir with anything.

for cubensis I wouldn't go much more than 1:4. you can eyeball this kind of stuff doesn't need to be super perfect.

follow a method that has this information clearly laid out for you
