Dry Start Questions

Hi Guys,

A Question in regards to Dry Start...

Are we to fill the substrate with water until barely hitting the top of the substrate

-OR-

Just keep the Substrate Moist? (not see water level build up)

Using ADA Amazonia...for DHG.

Thanks guys. and for nutrient wise (Macro/Micro) use for misting?

Fill to just under the surface of the substrate. Mist frequently.

You can use ferts in your mist if you want but Aquasoil will probably provide plenty. (I rarely use ferts when starting dry with Aquasoil)
