Michael Box is back on the show for quite possibly the best episode he has appeared on yet- today's episode is all about dialing in the PERFECT watering technique and moisture ratio, tips for Blumats, and the best way to care for your reservoirs. Michael explains the concept of moisture retention curve, as he has been diving deep into exactly how drybacks occur and what the perfect pressure is in your specific media. This leads to a conversation about different moisture retention curves in coco vs soil for instance, and how the constituents of your media will heavily affect the optimal mbar reading. Michael gives some amazing tips for using the Blumat automated watering system (my favorite system, code GROWCAST now active again for April) including how to reset your moisture meters, how to dial in your blumats before you even put them into your soil, and the best way to run nutrition through a Blumat system. Michael wraps up the show by sharing the do's and dont's of maintaining a reservoir- covering enzymes, nutrients, microbes and more!
