okey i just bought this system, and this is my first hydroponic grow. so my question is how much water do i put into the 4 gallon reservoir? the feeding schedule on the paper works say for Dry liking plant use 1/2hr ON then 1 hr OFF then after that 1 hr Off, 1/2hr ON and so on, only for when are LIGHTS ON, but when LIGHTS OFF there is no feeding is that right? Is the feeding cycle the same from Vege to Budding?
On this water farm what feeding schedule do i use for vege period and budding period?

Feeding is the same for veg and flower. You can customize your feeding schedule by watching your plants for signs of overwatering and underwatering. Because you have a air pump instead of a waterpump the solution is extremely aireated which is good but the water delivery is slow so you water more frequently compared to a waterpump drip which is normally 3 times a day.
A 4 gallon res should take 4 gallons of mixed water solution.

If you need too you can always contact the manufacturer just don't say what you grow and they can be very helpful.
