Hello fam, just looking for some experienced advice using a 8 cycle max per day programable timer for water pumps not lighting as I have my light set to 16/8 veg cycle. I’ve done some limited research and it varies from 15min on off cycles to patient cycles throughout the day and off 8 hrs at night as from what I’ve read and understand that plants don’t need solution during dark as they only feed during light. Some say rule of thumb is just long enough to dampen media and roots and off not long enough to dry out.
rDWC 22 gal res w/3X 3.5 bubble buckets
ATM I’m running
ON — OFF
Basically 2on 2off and cycled for 30mins twice during dark just to keep everything damp. It would be greatly appreciated for any input or advice to improve this cycling.
