Helpful info

There are several key benefits to growing In a hydroponic set up than soil:

Do I need grow lights?

Coco and Seed set ups are designed to be electricity free. No need for grow tents, grow lights, water bubblers, etc. The sun is the best resource that your plants will need. If you are low on sun light for full-sun loving plants, then supplementing with a full spectrum light can be beneficial but using a regular house lamp can help as well.

How much should I fill with water?

Create an airspace to allow the roots to breathe by not filling above the bottom of the net pot. The roots near the net pot are gathering oxygen while the roots submerged are gathering food. Use the laser cut out leaves as an indicator for your water levels.

How often should I water it? What should the watering schedule be? 

Always :) Due to the growing style they can’t ever be without water/food. Hydro comes from the Greek word "hudor" meaning water. Always make sure the plant has access to water or nutrient-rich water in the container and you'll have happy healthy plants.
