whats up everyone,which method would yield me the most and biggest buds. i will be using a 600 watt hps light in a 2'W X 41/2'L X 10'H closet.my seeds are cracking..i just need to know whether i need to buy cubes or soil..sort of an a.s.a.p. question,i would appreciate any imput or help.

thanks everyone

by the way, only 2 seeds are cracking right now, so it will mot likely only be the 2 with ample room in my 2'X4' tray

Take your pick. I grow soil just because i have heard that it is easyier. I have never even tried hydro. But if you talk to a hydro grower they would probably say hydro is easyer. I have heard that hydro needs a lot more monitoring than soil and Im not sure but from the pics of all the hydro setups I see they seem to take up quite a bit of space. I have two tiny closets that I can only fit two plants per closet so I just stick with soil. But its all personal prefrence so maybe you should try both and then continue with what method you like better.

For a beginner, soil I would say, it is a bit more forgiving than hydro, with hydro one mistake can be the end....

Hydro will yield more in a shorter amount of time. Instead of the plant investing in a large root system, hydroponically grown plants have a very small root mass comparatively speaking. This is due to the nutes being so readily available in the water. GL man.
