You won’t want to do any top feeding once the roots are established. You want the roots reaching down into the reservoir, which is where their food/water will be. If you top feed with this system, all sorts of nutrient issues can occur.
It looks like a nicely made set-up.
@blackthumbbetty thanks for the info
Thank for the complement on my construction skills
I did not think this was a hydro system but i guess in the end it turns into one thinking about it.
My concerns maybe you can clear my thinking up LOL
If the wick is wet all the time can that cause fungi to grow on the roots I have been this could happen? have you seen this in your system? is it a concern i need to watch so, what should I use for the wick media?
and Air stone with air pump is needed?
Thanks for the help
I am not an expert on this method, myself. The wick medium can be the same as the rest. That’s what I did. Best medium mix is coco and perlite OR peat and perlite.
If done properly, your roots will stay healthy.
An air stone spreads out the air better than an open hose.
It’s a hybrid system. Do not let hydro people get you in trouble. This has slightly different rules than straight hydro or straight soilless (coco & peat).
Search “autopots” in the search bar to see a myriad of different grows/techniques
I have made hybrid soil/hydro systems in the past with a wicking system for watering…
Didn’t see any pics of the system that the poster is using…
It’s not just you It’s filled with very colorful pot leaves
has anyone heard anything from Jimmy?
It’s been a while but I’ve heard he is ok. Idk what happened but I hope ok is good and I hope we see him back one day. I think @DoobieNoobie was who had some contact with family or something. I don’t see him around either though. I hope he’s doing good too.
I remember this post it was just from over a year ago
typical asshole cop… get a sense of humor
