Long time soil grower here getting ready to try my first DWC grow. I’ve always wanted to try hydro but just never did, creature of habit I guess. Anyways I was bitten by the 420 bug and have several strains from ILGM I can’t wait to try and I figured the quickest way to do so was to either grow them hydroponically or buy more tents that I don’t have room for. I bought a couple 5 gallon buckets at Lowe’s, ordered 6” net pot bucket lids on Amazon then went to a pet store to get everything else so I would’ve have much into this new venture just to be cheap in case I don’t enjoy this type of grow.
Basically I’m just wondering if anyone who’s experienced in DWC (or hydro in general) has some basic pointers to help a newbie out that has zero experience with this type of grow and may come across issues they never thought of. I know trial and error is the best teacher but I’d prefer to have a successful first DWC grow. I’ll be growing two Gorilla Glue plants to start.
Thanks for your time
