So from my understanding I know the first feeding starts 2 hours after lights on. I have read that 100ml is what the plants need in 6x6 cube, is that each shot or is 100ml needed total on a daily basis?
At 100ml I'm about 99% sure that would be for each event. No way could I see that being daily andwelcome to the farm sir
Idk RW holds about 80% of its volume in water. So I'd say you can over water them of you water to frequently or have a cold rootzone that slows uptake. I know the RW starters are easily over watered for seedling and clones.gonna depend on a few factors like, size of plants, room conditions, what your cubes are in etc.. etc...
as long as you have good drainage its darn near impossible to overwater rockwool during an event as the excess water just runs right through. on the other hand, if you don't give enough volume you can end up with a nutrient build up in the cube.
seedlings would probably be fine with 100ml a day or even every other day. as the plant grows twice a day then 3 times etc. the plants will tell you as you gain experience.
i don't water too near lights out as i dont want the roots sitting in soaked rockwool while the lights are out.
100%, that's why i said during a watering event, meaning one watering.So I'd say you can over water them of you water to frequently or have a cold rootzone that slows uptake
The more I read up on and study RW the more I can't help but feel like coco maybe a better choice.... for me atleast. I think coco is a bit more foolproof not that RW is any worse just takes a bit more attention to detail and knowhow if I have things straight in my head.100%, that's why i said during a watering event, meaning one watering.
watering too frequently or too much for plant size or too close to lights out can definitely lead to issues but an established plant can easily handle fully soaking the cube.
think of ebb and flow, the table is flooded often more than once a day once you get rolling. as the water level drops in the tray air is pulled into the top of cube controlling the water content. same as top watering or drip, as the water flows through the cube air is dragged through with it. many also put an air stone in the reservoir.
mistakes can definitely be made watering too frequently just like in soil or other media but trying maintaining the water to air ratio inside the cube IMO is time better spent elsewhere.
Yes that’s exactly what I was thinking, was hoping somebody who is familiar with the chart would be able to elaborate. But here’s the original thread that I found through a google searchagree completely, there's no one size fits all, so many variables.... the environment, strain, watering method, plants uptake, etc
as aqua man said you learn to read the plant by weight and visual cues but also testing. i keep a spreadsheet on my phone of the parameters of what i water with, what runs off and what's right at the roots, sometimes at different times, then adjust accordingly.
I've never seen the chart before but don't think those blips each indicate a watering. at the bottom it says start, drain, stop. I may be misreading it but i looks like one watering event, can you post a link the the webpage you got it from?
P1, P2 and P3 are common terms used in the Aroya software system. Is this a screen shot form the software?
