    Hey guys I was going to be making some adjustments to my grow room and I can either make a tray so I can ebb n flow or just top feed with my hand.

    I don't have enough experience to in either to determine how much difference there is between the two.

    I use botanicare cocogro (comparable to canna coco). I will have six 5 gallon smart pots under two 600w A/C HPS. Nute: Cash crop.

    Share your experience with which one you prefer with coco and why. If you have tried both top and bottom feeding how different were the results?

    Are you running to waste?

    If i go the bottom feed route, it would be an ebb n flow so the same nutes/water would be recirculated.

    If I top feed then it would be by hand, so it would be drain to waste.

    After reading around a lot, many coco growers feed with low to no run off with same results. I might give the low runoff a shot if I hand feed them.
