    I will be using bonicare 4x4 trays with super soil top 50% organic soil, bottom 50% super soil. 1000w per tray 35 per tray. they are auto flowers 18/6 light schedual. How much do I need to water? I was thinking once every 4 days for the first few weeks. Please let me know what you think. I will be doing sensi seeds bigbud after this run I will be starting them straight from rooted clone 3 weeks after cutting the clones. REP for help!!!!!!!:leaf:

    You should be fine warring every 4 days but after the initial burst they'll probably need to be fed every other day.

    With plenty of nutes

    good luck with this!

    I disagree. 50% super soil in a 4x4 bed is 60 gallons of super soil (if your bed is 12 inches deep). with that much ss and a short veg I can't see you burning up all the nutrition. for comparison, 5 gallons of ss will get 1 heavey feeding plant through an 8 week veg and 9 week bloom with plain water. indoor soil beds are sweet by the way. pictures?

    I think the bed he's using is 6 or 7.5 inches tall

    other than that ill rephrase my statement above and say water every other day and add supplemental nutes like Calmag if you're using r/o or extra k for flowering. Because sometimes the soil hasn't broken down enough of the available nutrients within the soil due to low microorganism activity.

    also line the bottom of the tray with perlite or hydroton so it give the water that passes all the way through a place to sit away from the roots to help fight root rot in the system you are planning to run

    Add some oyster shells, pumice and a little azomite with the perlite and your plants will be singing!
