Default watering 24 hours

Hi, It Rey from NC, I was reading some of the ? and saw a lot about watering 24 hours for
convenience. My ? is, if you do that, and the roots are submerge in medium 24 hours, won't this keep
the roots from getting oxygen therefore killing the plant. Please explain. Ps Have you got your green
house kit ready jet.

Hi Rey
Even though the plants are in the medium 24 hours it is watered in ether drip from the top or water
from the bottom in cycles. About ever 15 minutes. That's why a good cycle timer is important.
