I didnt mention that I also used a drip system for a few hours a day until my roots came through. If you keep your watter level about 1/2in. away from the bottom of your net and that should do the trick. Two of my friends using DWC system as do I, start in jiffy pellets and transplant into DWC when roots start to show. They dont use a drip system, they just wait for roots to look for water. I like to give them an extra hand with the drip system. You dont have to use a drip system but you may need to water it every so often.
