Automatic watering system

  1. hey guys... starting from now, i'm an "active member" of this forum since the growing experiment has started. I do recommend http://www.growlighting.co.uk/. the guy delivers the light on the next day and even throws a hanging kit for free. I'm starting my experiment with one Misty and an AK47.


    They are growing in peat pots and within 7 days already have delevoped their true leaves.

    two question guys.. I'm using a 250W HPS lamp and last night i noticed that after 5 hours, the soil and pots were dry. How do you handle this guys? Do you use any kind of a system to automatic water the plants? maybe one drop every 10 minutes or something??


    and last, when should i start use fertilizer? which one do you recommend?


    thanx

  5. depends on what grow medium ya use as to how often ya water .With soil ya should let it dry a bit on top not to much ,remembering the light drys out the soil .l only grow hydro so l carnt help ya to much.don,t over fert and flush regular.
     
  6. Yes plants in small pots under powerful lights do need watered a lot, though once a day is usually enough. If they dry out completely quicker than that, try raising the light a bit. Once they get to about 6-7 inches, they can be transplanted to a bigger pot which will need less frequent watering. As far as ferts go, wait till they are 3-4 weeks old and look in the shops for a product that has a high Nitrogen content. Use this at half strength maybe every third watering.
    Best of luck.
