What strain is that?
If you can kill it in soil, you will kill it in hydro. But skills being equal, you will never match hydro speed in soil, for technical reasons.
It's not a contest though. Someone else said earlier (and in a diff thread iirc) soil was just as fast as hydro, and I think that's why MB posted that. Most forms of hydro are simply faster. It just is.
I'm hydro. RDWC. I do it bc I think it's easier than soil. Both labor wise, and technically. I find it easier to nail the grow in hydro.
I have more respect for the people who kill it in soil, because imo, killing it in soil is much harder than hydro.
So rock on brother! I still run small soil plants in the hopes that one day, I will get good at it. For me...hydro is not only my preference bc of my health...but it's also a crutch bc learning how to kill this plant in soil takes a long time. The fact that I can pull so much weight in hydro, isn't really a reflection on my skills. It's almost automatic. I'm not even trying to do it, it just happens.
But don't care about the weight, I just grow for my own meds. If I could grow the same quality meds in soil as I do in hydro, and it it wasn't physically difficult...I would. Much respect for the soil guys. When I see amazing soil product, my mouth begins to water.
