Be careful, hydro is addictive and I spent a few years collecting all manner of pumps, air pumps, nets, containers, tanks, nft, flood and drain, potions, ph up ph down, boosters, rooting potions, budding potions and bags of clay pebbles. It was only on a clear out that I realised I'd filled a room up with all the bits and pieces.

 

When I moved, I decided to give away what I could and dump the rest.

 

I've been in soil for the past 15 yrs or so. Its nice to just be able to watch the plants grow and tend them rather than twiddling with hydro. I admit, the yield is better with hydro but soil is not far behind.

 

One thing I have learnt, the supply of oxygen to the roots in hydro is a massive benefit. I once grew in rock-wool slabs placed in a bowl, good as the yield was, I had one bowl with an air pump. That grew the most vigorous.

 

In NFT tanks, an air pump improves the growth and yield. They do work without but add one and it works better.

 

I would think the kratky method would improve with an added air pump and air stone. Interesting method though.

I think I’m going to go Full hydro next time I want to be able to get max yield and I’m going to get another 2 led lights and have 3 going at a time. Hydro actually seems pretty easy and actually more efficient then soil grow. Soil grow is messy as fuck :D my girlfriend is loving it

 

I used to grow hydro for about 10 years and trust me soil is 100% less hassle(easier) 100% cheaper and tastes better and honestly I'm only short by about 5% in weight  compared to hydro runs iv done. potency is the same to. I love hydro and the science behind it all but id never go back to it now.
