    should know after how long, with no water, rock wool is dry or just damp.

    I think, that when the rock wool is dry or damp, it is rewetted, the adjustment must be made from this .

    for temperate ping no problem you watering all the time

    in MEXICO 2 season

    dry season 16C to 21C ( november to may)
    rain season 21c to 27 c (june to october)

    in SAN DIEGO what climat?

    march to november in average 26c january february 16c ? september to october rain season?

    The rockwool can be dry, but the soil (cat litter) in the media pockets will still be wet. This is the problem. But I don't think pings can grow only on rockwool...if they can, then I would get rid of the soil.

    In SAN DIEGO:

    Dry Season: 18C - 32C (May-October--little to no rain)
    Wet Season: 4C - 20C (October-May, more rain)

    This seems to be a good estimate of our seasons but it is not exact.

    Our weather right now

    Our average weather by chart--Where I live specifically we have more variation in temperature ~ (+/- 4* F) For instance, we have hit freezing in winter, and 100 in summer. But average temperature is only a little lower or higher. This link also shCMows average precipitation, or rain. 1" = 2.54 CM.

    Here are temperature scales for your convenience, jeff,







    I discovered today that my timer can water once a week instead of every day!

    thanks for the climat .

    this climat seem good for the mexican ping outdoor ( attention to the frost, if you have sometimes, by prudence never to fall below 4 c)

    if the rock wall is dry and the pocket substrat remain wet it is good for them.


    you can try without substrate ,you make then hydropony .

    Thanks! The reason I don't put more pockets is because p. gigantea is supposed to grow easily 30 cm or 1 foot in diameter. Jeff here had plants 50cm or almost 2 feet in diameter!!! I'd rather have a few thriving plants.

    And I think moss would die

    Well, I'm open for suggestions. I'm just journeying into uncharted waters right now and will report my findings and...well...share for the good of all.

    Well, the three plants I put on there are rooted. One p. gigantea that I received died quickly due to bad packing. The other one...my only clone...is doing well. It is on the very bottom pocket.

    My main problem now is that the bottom holds alot more water than the top. Hence the top is much drier! I cannot grow the plants equally. Any solutions? it's the rockwool that won't let go of the water on the bottom. So the plants on top wilt, and the one on the bottom would rot if I'm not careful.

    Other than that, it's working well. Maybe I need to do something a bit different next time!
