  1. how long shud my feedin pumps be on for? at the min there on for 1 hour then off for 3hours to let roots absorb water nd dry up, doin this for 20 hours of the day. there still only seedlings.

    by the way its a top feed drip system
  2. Just check and make sure they're not excessively wet, as seedlings you should probably do 15 mins and then determine how long it takes for them to absorb the water. Could do up to 3 cycles of 15 mins a day, young seedlings might only need 1 a day.
  3. thanx for the reply!was startin to think no had an answer for me. so how wud u check the roots?
