Over the past couple days I have been brainstorming ways to put my Niwa One to better use, optimized for cannabis if you will.
The inside of the Niwa is roughly 13" x 8", and the current slab of rockwool is around 3" thick. The nute pump is connected to the Niwa which does the dosing, something that I would rather have control over. I’m thinking about getting a better pump and using my Amazon smart plug to program the schedule.
I was looking for a circle drip feeder to use with the new pump, the current one is 6 unreliable nozzles on the hose coming from the current pump. When I was doing some research I was in skimming through @Bplatinum9 FloraFlex thread and I had a lightbulb moment !
Why not use a square 6" matrix with a round matrix circulator. All I would need to do is swap out the pump, run the new FloraFlex hose, install the FloraFlex square matrix on top of a matrix pad, and then add the round matrix circulator. The rockwool is thick enough for the spikes on the round circulator, so it shouldn’t move around at all.
