Review all ye pros! Hydroponic water supply...
    #576960 - 03/12/02 04:01 PM (16 years, 8 months ago)

I put H2o2 soaked vermiculite in the bottom of my pans before I covered this with mesh and then adding the Shit/Grasseed cakes (crumbled) on top of that. Cased the whole thing with coco. But that time it didn't pin for some reason. I am having success for the first time these days. All of this working with a simple cased cake tek however.
Here is my suggestion. Use aluminum pans or something of that order where you can cut 1/4 inch holes into(covering the entire bottom of the container). cover these holes with mesh(used to make the princess' tutu) so the cake stuff won't fall through. then cover the mesh laminated pan with ~1/4 inch of vermiculite. It is your choice to cover this layer with another mesh sheet. Now add all the cake and casing goodies in the right order. Now, bootlegging the technique of the Hydropod, use those volcanic pellets (moistened) and place your pan on top of this "bed". I trust that the pan will somehow by contact suck moisture from the pellets and will help with the production of larger and faster growing fruit.
I have not yet tried this, but will do so on my next attempt.
Anyone out there with Pan. Trop. / Pan. Cyan. Hydropod experience could help out as far as predicting the reaction of the installment to the water supply from below as opposed to the supply of water through the casing layer.
Feedback is appreciated. If this would work it could cut a lot of bullshit that people have to go through with using hydroponic cakes or whatever is out there.

Sounds like it would work, just be sure to thoroughly rinse the geolite with a power washer a bunch of times before putting in to wash off all of that dust. I go to a self service car wash, and with a big old rubbermaid I put all of the geolite in to be cleaned, then open just a corner to get the nozzle in. Fill about a quater with water, then (keeping tub only a bit open on a corner to allow only the water to pass) simply turn over and drain. Repeat another 2-4 times or until all water being poured out is clear. Rinse one last time, leaving a bit of water in to keep the pellets wet until ready to use. Be sure that you don't let them dry out, or they will be instantly dusty as fuck again. And that shit could potentially get pulled up into the casing if put in like that. Okay, 1 other small thing I thought of. You will need to be sure to maintain a water level 1/2" to 3/4" below the casing, otherwise it will not be able to wick high enough to rehydrate. Now doing this will not assure you of keeping a fully moist casing maintained (depends on the height a great deal, those rocks aren't miracle workers), but at least the the majority of the crumbled cake level will be rehydrated. That is definitely an improvement, and a very good idea!!! Make sure to keep us posted on this. Oh yeah, one other thing I thought of. You'll need some kind of access point to be able to pour water into the geolite at the bottom, maybe you can leave a small spot open with a half-circle of corrugated cardboard or something? You just need a big enough hole to put a half cup or so of water in every week. Good luck with this!!!
