RE: Is 5-1-1 OK in coconut pots?

Coco liners with gritty mix. They don't look like much yet but the one has new growth in the foreground and the other one was a nub a month ago when I planted them. They are varieties of Agapetes so they like well drained soil. So I think if you didn't want to water as much 5-1-1 would work just fine.

PS that fig tree in the bamboo planter in the background is one big 5-1-1 mound.
