g'day; medium to try is.....perlite/vermiculite, approx, $40 per 100ltr bag at any good nursery.(always wear a dust mask when handling fresh perl/verm.)

mix your soluble hydro nutes into drum of water,(always add nutes to water, not water to nutes).i use 25ltr plastic drum with tap at bottom. you can run hose off tap to run to drip setup, or you can hand water daily or as required.

i feed straight water for 2 feeds each week, then water only (no nutes) for last 2 weeks before harvest.
