Default flooding every 4 hours

Ron, I just recently finished building your 11 plant system.. I am using gro rocks.. I put 3 week old "tomato" plants in the system. And they wilted... I tried with plain ph adjusted tap water and a nutrient mix.. I was flooding every 4 hours for 20 minutes.. I am confused.. Thanks..

Every 4 hours won't do it. Every 20 minutes should be your watering cycle especially with grow rocks. Ron
