Replacing hydroton with water beads.

I'm interested in what kind of enzymes you use and what your process is? I usually boil the shit out of them with a little vinegar, then pop them in the oven at 425° for 45 minutes to dry out and kill whatever remains. Granted my setup isn't huge, I'm always looking for ways of doing this faster and easier.
Hmmm... I wonder if they(hydroton) could take a 30 min pressure cook in an instapot without breaking a part. Fuck it Ima try it here in a day or 2 and I'll report back if it works or not cuz that would make shit fast and easy for sure.

Alright, alright, alright

Shit yea, maybe that would work. Might be worth a shot to experiment with if there happens to be an old instapot around 🤔 haha

That time you were so high you said SOIL

Have you ever tried soaking the hydroton in an enzyme product ? I use it to clean my fabric pots and it does a decent half assed job.

If i use enough of it maybe it will eat the roots right off, that would be pretty awesome for hydroton.

I once started picking out a flood and drain tote and got to maybe a solo cup and said fuck that and it ended up in my potato bed for aeration.

I would rather use a 4 inch rockwool cube. That shit works great in a bubbler basket.

County Line Diesel is way more focused on the topic. :D
