I have a 275 gal tote with two 6x4x7 grow beds .And have been flooding my beds continuous since start up.  

My qestion is will bacteria grow faster if I flood my beds continuous or if i flood for say fifteen minutes

twice an hour ?

Does it even matter ?

There have been some trials done over at BYAP where they ran three side by side systems.  One was a siphon system one was a continuous flood and one was a timed flood and drain.

The continuous flood system seemed to cycle up faster.

Flood and drain seems better for some plants.

But does it really matter, only minimally.
