I tried growing in cocoa, using the slit buckets that I’ve been using. I’ve always had a problem with the leaves, looking deficient while I was using the cocoa. I finally went back to using pro mix and have never looked back. I’ve never gotten any bugs in it and it’s totally inert.
How do you dispose of used pro mix? I assume it isn't reusable? I'm building one of the aeroponic tubs GMO uses, so I don't keep having to deal with getting rid of used dirt

Can you put a photo of the pro mix please? i may go that route next grow.

yo momma...
first time I saw that I wondered if they had Pro Mix Romex type as they have bx type
only you joe...I have a lot of property so I put the used promix in the loader and scatter it out back, just lok for the white specs and you've found it...I can't see risking it by reusing the peat, it's been saturated with nutes and who knows what may be lurking in there...the rootball is at least 4 months old, that's a long time to not have any issues...to each their own...now if I was outdoors that would be a different story...

You're lucky ,we would get dirt from a green house supply and keep in the garage and hump it in to the basement at night
