One of the advantages with growing hydroponically is that there is very little potting necessary. Plants go into their final position early on, and stay there until they fruit.
Another advantage of hydroponics is that plants do not need to grow their roots to the extent that soil grown plants do.
Soil grown plants develop large root systems in search of water and nutrients. Hydro grown plants have the luxury of being pampered with water the finest water and nutrients available, delivered to their door!
Of course, measuring the pH and strength (EC) of the nutrients/water that we feed them with is a bit time consuming. However, keeping a lookout for pale growth, or other visual symptoms, is all that is necessary for now.
