I am curious to know what you can use in the net pots for the plant to sit in? Prefer not to use hydroton or rockwool.Would coco work? And is it ok if you put a sprouted seed in or would you have to use dripper for that? I am guessing that it less of a hassle to just get rockwool to plant the sprouting seed. How does a seedling get its water in a DWC? Does it just have to be filled to the top? I would like to put the seed straight in. No, rockwool bullshit. Maybe thinking of using a sponge (maybe a specific type of sponge would be better?) and attaching a dripper. But then would have to cover the sponge to prevent it from getting algae, no? And I would also have to get a pump. :/ The problem is that my local store does not carry most of equipment required for grow.I want a simple DWC, but is only possible if I can find a source of supplies. I also heard suretogrow is a great medium to use for the net pots. As for the nutrients, which are some that some of you are using? Any from the local store? Do ones from local store work well? I am thinking of just getting the nutrients from Lowes. One for vegetative stage (more nitrogen), another for flowering (more phosphorus and potassium. I could not find anything with micronutrients. I know the ones at Lowes are not really meant for this type grow, but it is all I can find at safe location. I would also like to ask what size container/reservoir is ideal? My intentions were to just get one that has a low height for more growing room, but I also do not want to jam the roots in such a small area either. Would it really matter anyway? By the way, this is all to fit in a 2ftx1ftx3ft plastic cabinet box. So, 5 gallon buckets would not really be what I am looking for. Looking at my other threads may help you get an idea with what I am working with. Just to make it clear, I am not a beginner, I am just trying to switch to hydro with a concrete blueprint. Any suggestions on what I could potentially improve on, would be great.
