Thanks ya first grow ever. Had a lot of advice and blessed with some great friends and we did a lot of research and decided to go for gold with Coco in a top drip drain to waste setup. Why mess around when majority known farmers say top drip DTW coco is where yields can be compared to deep water culture...Very nice,
did you say this is your first grow? anyway 'Top drip DTW 'For The Win'!
Here's a few things we learned so far...
A. Less is more
B. Unless we're talking time with plants then more is always better lol
C. Plant training and canopy management early on doubled yields
D. Environment mattered more for yields than anything else
E. More airflow better
F. Coco blows up yields when constantly wet
G. Smaller pots are better
H. Perlite or hydroton layer on bottom and play sand on top for better drainage and less evaporation.
Sure we will learn much much more as time goes on!
