How wet should rockwool cubes be?
Also to know is, how often should I water rockwool cubes?
Rockwool holds about 80% water and 20% air when oversaturated and needs to dry out (similiar to a soil-based medium) before it is watered again. In an ideal environment, Hugo Rockwool blocks generally need watering once a day in the Vegetative Growth Stage and twice a Day in the Bloom Stage.
Secondly, how long do you soak rockwool cubes? between fifteen minutes and two hours
Secondly, can you overwater Rockwool?
Don’t: Overwater Plants in Rockwool The appropriate level of runoff should not exceed 30%, which means very little water should come out the bottom of a rockwool block. If you are watering and the amount of drainage exceeds 30%, you are probably overwatering. This may lead to algae growth.
How do you prepare rockwool cubes for clones?
Take ur cutting, dip in clonex gel, place in rockwool cube just untill you feel resistance. Put in clone tray and cover with humidity dome ( I spray dome with some plain water to get the humidity up, clones take in their water thru the leaves while they are cloning and have no roots), place on heat mat on LOW setting.
Rockwool should be thoroughly soaked in pH balanced water before use. Most rockwool cubes have a pH of around 7.8, which is higher than the plant’s preferred levels of 5.5 – 6.5. Once your water is pH balanced, add your cubes and let them soak for about an hour, or until thoroughly wet.
