    The roots are barley through the net pot right now so i figure until they are, im going to keep two air stones in there. Im counting on the plant living all that O2 and giving me a nice yield to carry me over to my next harvest. Just finished up some of the purps and that might be the best tasting smoke ive ever had. Not a good yeilder but def worth the time. I also just started to taper down my nutes instead of completely changing them out, no point in wasting the water. Saves me a hell of alot of time...

    Late reply, but I'm starting a DWC in a 2.1 gallon bucket. Trying to stay low profile with the res. I check on my girls multiple times a day anyways so if I have to water every other day, no big deal to me. My first ever hydro grow, I'm an organic soil man. The little aero garden got my wheels turning and we'll see how it goes. I'm trying to remain unbiased about the results.

    I have two plants stuck in a 2 gallon bucket because I let their roots tangle (it's great being a newbie!). They're doing great so far at about half way through bloom so we'll see how it goes. All of mine are in 2 gallon buckets but the others are by themselves and doing great. I'd be curious to hear thoughts or anyones experience with 2 gallons.

    I'm growing autos in soil. I have a small grow area 2'-2'-4' so height is an issue. I'm using 2 gal fabric pots. Would a 2 gal DWC system be sufficient for my next crop?

    I would use a milk crate lined with landscape fabric. They hold something like 6 gallons and are under 10 inches tall.
