how long do i let the pump run???
so i bought me a genhydro water farm, its a drip system, and i had a few questions?
do i leave the pump on 24/7 to water, do i shut it off?
and i have been doing 12/12 for the lights. is that good?
any helpful hints would be great.

I don't know much about drip systems but I can tell you that with a bubbleponics system, you only leave the pump on 24/7 until the roots touch water in the resevoir. I would assume that it's based on the same principle. Feed tubes 24/7 plus the water intake from the resevoir would be way too much water/nutrients and cause all sorts of issues. This is your first post, so I suggest doing some research and using that awesome SEARCH link right below the RIU banner. Hope I could help.

i have my pump go on 3 times a day for half an hour at a time and they seem to be doing ok.. as long as they get enough water and oxygen they'll do fine

i have my water lines poked thru the net pots like the stealth hydro system - they reccomend watering for 3 minutes every hour once roots hit the water - i tried that and noticed growth slow down so i water 24/7 no issues and plants grew 11 inches from seed in 4.5 weeks and i am getting 2-3 nodes per inch . theres tonnes of oxygen in the water and the plants will only drink when they need to - you cant overwater with hydro but you can shorten the life of your equipment by having come on and off all the time .
