    Semi hydro is a solid container with 2_3 holes maded into the side about 1 inch to 1.5 inch from the bottom (2nd pic). Use an inorganic product such as these clay balls as the medium. Round is good, allowing plenty of air space between clay balls other stuff can be used but you must master the growing technique. Remember, water and air are the key elements here.
    Proper watering there is always water in the bottom reservoir of the container you use. That is about it. e0788b0a2f94663db63d38d0e2285c79.jpg c15ed634ede2b7e2615bd8c3288ca746.jpg
