@bushdr @p0opstink sorry I don't know how to tag people on this. What do you think of a thin top layer of whatever as pest prevention and maybe assisting in even water distribution?

Avoid the possibility of the root ball sitting in cold water

The layer on top reduces evaporation, the clay pellets also absorb salts

would the top layer affect my EC? And I was wondering have I got to adjust my water temp according to my room temp?

you said you are in a tent? this should be in the coco section. this is in greenhouse. you are inside.
i grow in a mostly coco perlite mix. drain to waste, top spray. 20 gallon pot trees. but what i do is different because I'm in a greenhouse. i would be running smaller pots with pure uncut coco if i were inside. i have big temperature fluctuations and more Sun and way more room.

forget about a top layer of anything. your canopy Will prevent evaporation. bottom layer of pebbles to help drain is cool. I'm not up in brands of coco because i buy in bulk, but there are 3 types of coco. super fine pith, stringy fibre stuff, and chips. mixture of all 3 is nice. including some chips Will make it do you don't really need perlite.
