I’ve recently run a grow through an ebb & flow system similar to one I’ve run in the past with much success. This time, instead of filling the buckets with hydroton, I used the bucket lid net pots, which use only a fraction of the hydroton and leaves tons of room for the roots.
Here’s a very basic diagram of the setup
So my question is, if I add air stones to each bucket and pump the air while the buckets are filling up, will this improve on what I’m already doing?
BTW - my nutes are very basic. I’m adding Cal-Mag Plus to RO water and feeding with GLN 2 part plus their Bud Explosion.
