  1. Some curious questions and thoughts on blumats and drought stress. I would love to play with this. When I think about the maxi blumats, I assume the topsoil gets drier before the maxi activates since the call for water happens deeper. My thoughts: what if we designed a blumat system where we could quick connect from the regular size over to the maxi (or possibly run both) to keep that moisture rating at that 100-150 mbar dampness levels. At that late flower stage, disconnect the regular sizes and run the system only on the maxis. Thusly running the soil to drier levels. I.e drought stress. Would this be counter intuitive to the microbial life perseverance? I feel like trying to tune the regular sizes at drier levels will run the risk of the carrots drying to far out to be effective.

  2. I always thought cutting clone tips reduced transpiration? I like not cutting tips and find clones do better after rooting and transplanting. Can't wait to see results from coco with "salts".
