Automated RDWC vs Wilma drip system
Greetings my friends, I've been wondering recently about what will be my next growth system, I've grown in common dwc once but it didn't work well due to excessive heat, now I'm growing in coco and it works amazingly, but I want to start thinking about my next project in a way that can go a couple days without looking into the system, I want to start traveling more...
So my main ideas are
1- a 8 site rdwc with a arduino based pH controller/solenoid valves for dosing 3 part gh flora series, or maybe Lucas formula, also a chiller for the reservoir
2- two Wilma trays with 4 sites each, medium would be coco coir
Now the question, about the Wilma, as it's a reservoir is there any chance I can have problems with pythium? Because if I would need to buy a chiller for the wilmas, I would rather go for rdwc, but if it isn't a issue, I could get the wilmas in like 2 months (my usual temp is 27 in grow and 23-25 in reservoir, data from my last dwc), the rdwc would demand at least 4-5 months because of the automation and chiller, how many days can I spend away from the Wilma, monitoring in a IP camera?
Also planning on building a isolated room with arduino controlled co2 emission and obviously a ac unit, but that would be in the 5 months.
