    I'm moving soon, so i'll have to start at seed. I'm coming up on my 1 yr mark. Ive been only dwc in 5 gals. Usually just pop 3 or 4 seeds, find the females and clone/flower/clone. But now that i can restart any ideas on how to germinate and sex in the fastest, cheapest, and smallest profile. I'm thinking about a 4'x4' ebb and flow table. with 1 gal pots. Maybe even red solo cups with. But i'm also not sure what media to use, only ever used rockwool and hydroton.
    1) How to germinate andsex the fastest & cheapest way possible while not using lots of space.?
    2) Best clean media for ebb and flow? I've heard you need a mask when preparing perlite so i'd rather nothing like that

    Success has been had WITH AERO CLONING at 15 on/off. Fresh cuttings IMMEDIATELY set in to RO water for a minute or two then coated in powder and put into their Aero Collars to hang and be misted. Domed with no ventilation besides a daily misting for first 3 days, then opened slightly to allow a bit of air flow for the next 2 days, then again even more for another 2 days. Then removed completely.

    For flooding Cycles, 2-3 30min soaks.

    Try going to the mall or walmart or target, there's lots of stores that carry jeans, bro.

    I'd like to add my experience to the subject. Back awhile a buddy convinced me to try coco. I used coarse coco in 5"x5" pots on 3'x3' E&F tray. Flooded 5x30minutes.

    Only problem was flotsam from coco dirties res and clogged pump. A mesh bag around pump solved that...but I switched back to hydroton.
