1St Deep Water Grow Buckets

@nd time grow, kind of burned buds at end of flowering and decided to try Deep Water Grow using 5 gall on buckets and auto flower Blueberry.ILGM support is awesome as only one of my 5 seeds germinated and are sending me a replacement .Growing seeds in pellets, once I get them and under light until like 5 inches tall
Questions:

1).Do I plant in the clay pellets or put in rock will then the clay pellets and bucket?
2).Do I keep light on 18/6 for the full 10 week grow?

Any advice much appreciated

Yeah, put your plant with roots dangling through the netpot if you can and very carefully secure in place with your stone. Make sure to keep the solution an inch or so beneathe the net pot and have the bubbler splashing the bottom if it gently. As the roots grow longer, lower the solution until 2/3 full and the rest is for air root. Change solution every week with fresh stuff.
If your roots dont dangle thats ok too, they will in a few days. You may need to drip some water from the top to make sure the root doesnt dry out. A few times a day.
Start your solution at 1/4 strength.

Yep, just drain the bucket or rez, whatever you have going on there. Replace with new nutrient and ph it before you put it in the bucket. Turn the bubbler on and yer gud 2 go.
