I would like to talk about my auto feed/drip lines. Once I'm in my final pot and two hand feeds will not cut it anymore, I start my auto feed. It's a low pressure system that the quart inch drip lines run for almost a minute. With these two gallon smart pots I started off with twice a day with auto feed and I quickly found out the next day that wasn't enough. Then i tried three times and that wasn't enough. Now I'm up to four times a day and the moisture level in the coco is perfect. I never saturate the coco and it stays right in my sweet range between a high 3 for the driest part and up to 5 in my moisture meter for the wettest part, right after the drippers come on. I like my low pressure system because I let the coco act more like a sponge and soak up the nutrient solution and evenly disperse it through out the rest of the pot with very minimal run off. In total with four feeds today and six plants, I got less than a gallon of runoff. This is only achievable running a very low ec/ppm. There is no need to have run off to get rid of excess nutrients because they are just getting what they need. I don't push my girls at all and they love me for it. The 4x6 tray is filling up quite nicely. A few more weeks and these girls will be ready.
Stay elevated my friends
