What is the best way to start a seed for growth in flood and drain buckets with hydroton. I normally clone with and aero cloner and put bare roots into hydroton bucket. I don't like to use peat plugs or anything synthetic. Does anyone have a clever way?

Rock wool is not synthetic and works nicely for germination.

Hi Willard3: Do you add nutrients during germination when you use rockwool in hydrotons?

New seeds have their own nutrient that comes with them. Start nutrient (very weak) after the plants have some true leaves.
