Timing !
    #393976 - 04/01/10 07:18 PM (6 years, 7 months ago)

Hey there everyone.

I am going to be building some ebb+flow tables.  My question to u experience hydro growers is what should the timing on the table be.  How long should I keep it flooded and how often should the table flood ?

If it is of any info I will be using probably a 20-30 gallon resevior and I will be using the lucas formula for my nutrients.

Check soil moisture to determine when to irrigate. its a balance between water and oxygen. Don`t leave the table flooded  or there will be no oxygen and thus root rot unless you have an air bubbler to super oxygenate the water but that`s DWC.

What type medium are you using?

But from my understanding most people seem to flood for 30 minutes, about 3 to 4 times during lights on, and once or twice during lights off.

I have yet to play with this type of system myself.

I will probably be using 50/50 coir/perlite.  Or I had someone suggest I use Large bale Sunshine # 4  Aggregate mix

I would go with hydroton but coir/perlite is great too, its actually what I use now but I hand water in 3 or 5gal pots.

If you use coir you wont have to flood as much maybe 2 times lights on 1 time off. Hydroton you would use 3 or 4 times for 30 min each and 1 time at night, (this is what I used when using hydroton in ebb&flow)
