I think Im finally getting the hang of 6' rw. It has pluses and minuses but for commercial applications I think they give the safest(less chance for error), best results. I was hoping this thread would allow knowledge and wisdom to be shared.
I learned that rw can be used twice or more.
Preparing rw cubes by flooding a botanicare tray 7" tray to be the easiest way.
Top drip works the best(in my experience)
Anybody have tips for helping reduce the vege time as the plants start out in the 6"?
6 " RW in both ebb n flow and drip. They both have pros and cons but both work pretty good.
Veg 1 month directly in hugo from clone. Handwater 1st week or two. Then water once a day for a week then 2 weeks mid feg water 2x per day.
Flower usually water 4X day. Grow largish plants 6 under 1000W .
I use 6" Hugo blocks directly onto the 4x4 trays @ 9-12 plants per tray. I flood 1 time a day until week 4 or 5 then it goes to two a day. 2# per light on everything. It works just fine for ebb and flow
I run a 40 light garden this way.
