    I was wondering if you should have a top feed system with Rockwool cubes.

    I got some clones that came in about 3" cubes and am running a Bubbleponics set up.

    What size Rockwool cubes do you use? Mine are the size that projectnfo has in his pic.

    I thought they were drowning as I have been having some problems.

    But I think it was due to the temperature of the water and the PH as well.

    And does it make a difference what light you use? For the constant drip?

    Top fed, growth is rapid when it's dialed in been my favourite way

    Yea, that's what I'm doing. But I have them in like 4" Rockwool cubes under the hydroton, so I didn't know if that would soak the Rockwool too mucb

    No that sounds sufficient. If your pump is too strong or ur lines r too short may cause a rise in pressure or a flooding effect
