i have an 8x4 flood table and a 75 gallon res. how often and for how long do i flood the table? also when i flood the table it only reachs half way up the pots. is this ok?
all of this can be found at home depot? i'll go in the morning. i need to know exactly what to get.Hushpuppy said:I have never used flood n drain but I would agree with Bleek on this. I use a variation of this and top feed water to my plants and just let it constantly drain in the pan and it works great for me. I use an 8 port head from one of the lawn watering systems like "rainbird". I use a 1/2"pipe riser straight up off my pump in the rez and top it with the multitap head with the "drip system" hose (I think its 1/4 or 1/8). I also get the little steaks from same place (home depot sells them in USA) to hold the hoses in place in my pots, and let them water constantly. (make sure yu have a very good air pump and giant air stone in yer rez to aerate the water, or the plants could stress from overwatering. Good grow mojo
