After about a week, you will see the roots beginning to poke through the holes in the cups and down and into the misting chamber - once this happens plant growth really takes off since the benefit of Aeroponics is realized.

I have found that the best spray cycle is a 1 minute on / 4 minutes off routine. It seems to be just the right ratio of on/off to allow the plants enough nutrient in high heat/strong lighting conditions. The NFT-1 cycle timer is a perfect match.
