thing is, you can put a bubbler underneath your plants roots in dwc etc, so not really comparable to coco. if you let a plant sit in wet coco you cant bubble it.
if I put a freshly rooted clone in a big pot of coco and drenched it, and kept it wet, it would take forever to build up the root system,
if you feed it little and often. unless you put it in a little cup which is really hard to overwater, and dries out far more quickly because of the cup size.
the only plants ive even been able to water constantly, in coco with no ill effects is if they are pretty much rootbound. then they love it.
I think its because everyones definition of ''wet'' is slightly different. id say ''moist'' is better than wet. but then fuck ive been growing in coco for years and still changing things up and experimenting.
