Rockwool placement

Discussion in 'Hydroponic Growing' started by logistixz, Mar 21, 2012.

  1. After germination and a few roots are showing on the bottom of the rockwool, when placing into the net pots should I put down a small layer of hydroton then surround the cube? Or place it directly on the bottom of the net pot?
     
  2. It doesn't matter. I've done both. I will say that if you put them on the bottom the plant seems to be sturdier when you flower. Like not falling over.
     
  3. Thanks for the reply, I'll try keeping it low at first.
     

  4. Another advantage of planting them low in the pot is that you can put a layer of Hydroton on the top which will prevent algae from growing on the RW.
     
  5. Don't put them directly on the bottom of the net puts, try and keep them a little lower than flush of the top of the net pot.

    Seriously they will wick from any splashing and will remain constantly wet. Put a layer of hydroton on the bottom, put the rockwool down then surround it
