Is that using synthetics though? Or is it purely water? ‘“When you water from the top, it creates pore channels in the soil. Since with capillary mats the nutrients are at the bottom within the mat, it wicks the nutrients from there up the medium as needed,” he explains.’ (Par 5 S1)

Both perhaps? Feed-Water-Feed or maybe just a continuous low EC feed like when using blumats and coco. It would depend on the substrate.

Did some light defoliation of lowers this week and took fans that were overlapping/ not getting good light. Did some more bending / bonsai of the tallest tops and manage to snap one off. RIP.

The new ones are Glue Suede Shoes BX ((Elvis x GG4) X Elvis). These were a little small to start in flower but going to roll the dice a little. The Elvis can get tall and am working in a short vertical height atm. Once they get bigger I will take some clones before week 3.

didn't have time to address it so tonight at lights on I did a little top water in of some ewc/kelp/coconut. got some nice roots going up top. notice on the sides especially where the dry nutes are.

will see how this tea does, I may need to top dress some more dry nutes I guess. these SIPs don't play.

It’s a “instatransplant” cup. Two solos, one on inside has 2” slits cut out of the sides. Outer holds it together. Less transplant stress for an autoflower...
can you show us example of how the cups work? been trying to figure this out myself. I think I understand what you are saying but pics would be sweet. I was thinking if the inner cup was clear it would make simple to check root growth too.
