No, that won't work. Your pump would become clogged with dirt. The only hybrid Hydro/Dirt that I know of is a drip system. Even with those, the dirt becomes a clogging factor with the pump.

Hydroponic is the absence of dirt.

The dirt would get waaaay too wet also... dirt retains sooo much water... a all perlite grow medium will work... still gotta watch the pump... just a matter of having some pantyhose over the return drain to ur rez.

Wait... a DWC would work imho... that uses an air pump blowing through water... ur airstones might get a lil clogged up but get the kind u can poke new holes into.

You mean MG ferts not dirt, right? I think it COULD work but you'd have to be careful with the ferts, give the seedlings a very dilluted version. I'm not sure with this one though, you should just go and get hydro ferts to be careful. Good luck.
