I did this part way through for a few weeks on a male while I waited for pollen after noticing first preflower. It grew and thrived until it'd pollinated enough. I'm curious to try it the entire time, but as of yet haven't. Everyone says it doesn't work on weed but I'll need to prove that to myself
I'm only interested in this because the sound difference, I'd take a little slower growth for quiet growth. As long as you don't fill it all the way back up and drown the air roots it should work perfectly fine. Running Hempy right now but kratky is on the radar.
my first thought is stagnant water for 35 days for lettuce let alone 10 weeks for weed sounds dangerous. I understand there is a section of rootzone exposed to air but with no d.o being replinished in the water source and no exchange of air in the aero section of the container it seems like ph and bad bacteria would take over in short order. Add in the temp of having the water directly under the plant with no chiller and I just don't see this working.
I looked at the pictures and read about 3 lines maybe me being lazy caused me to skip how these are not problems?
