    I have grown in hydroton before and am going to do it again. This time however I got a tip from someone saying to just fill the whole tray with hydroton and plant your clones directly into it. It will develop a much better root system than even with baskets. Plus its reusable and we try to stay as green as possible. I love Hydroton.?

    Is a tray full of rockwool cubes a bad idea? Will the rock wool cubes drain effectively enough or will they hold in too much water? Also, ive seen people using just plain 4×4 rockwool cubes sitting in the tray…in this case where do the roots go?? The plants finished with great results, did i miss something??

    I like to have circulation in my flood bed. One big advantage of Ebb and Flow systems, which wasn't touched on in this vid is salt removal. With some kind of circulation not only do your plant get extra oxygenated water, but more effective salt removal. So I've come accustomed to nice, deep floods. I think a mechanical timer is fine if your using a circulation jet, or forced bubble jet imho. Examples in my vids. Very easy mod.?

    1. Good video. 2. Does ebb & flow work outside hydroponics? For instance would growing seedlings in potting mix benefit from an ebb & flow schedule??
