What is a run to waste system?
Beside this, what is a drain to waste system?
Simply put, drain-to-waste is where you water your plants to a point where a recommended 15-20% by volume starts running-off, escaping the growing medium. This runoff water is discarded entirely. In a recirculating environment, the runoff is collected and used to feed other plants.
One may also ask, how often should I feed in Coco? You feed plants with every watering when growing in coco. Coco has nothing in it. Mix those nutes at half strength and feed every watering.
In this regard, how many times a day should I flood and drain?
The trick is not to over water. During the first 1 - 2 weeks, flood no more than once a day, ideally in the middle of your light period. Some growers actually hand water during this time, while plants are still establishing. After the first 1 - 2 weeks, when serious vegging has started, plants need more water.
Should I water Coco every day?
Start with Once or Twice DAILY Watering in Coco: You should water cannabis in coco at least once per day. You should only water seedlings that are in larger containers or plastic seedling pots once daily until the plant grows larger.
