i stick them in pot once i see good multi roots,, i dont care how long they are,

also.. no big issue on how deep you go,, i have some with rockwool right even with hydroten lvl,,

but latley ive adapted to burying them up to the first node to shorten them,, workin graet so farr,, :P

with DWC the airstones create 100% humidity in the bucket,, its like putting a bag of crack in front of a crackhead,, i do have drip system that waters from top for 15 mins using water from the bucket,, i water it 3 times a day,, but yea, that humidity down there is the key to DWC,, my new batch ive watered only 1 time and it seems roots came down quicker,
