I think those are excellent goals and a great way to get there @bryan.eden. Sounds well thought out with the right kind of financial backing too!
One of the biggest problems with E&F systems is that there is typically a large amount of nutrient in the room at all times, making mold a potential issue. So, adequate humidity control/monitoring and FAILOVER CAPACITY is important. If you can design your system to store the nutrient outside the cultivation area between feeding cycles, that could be a big plus.
For your boutique-style cultivation, in addition to genetics a dialed-in/tightly-controlled feed schedule is important as well as proper curing as I’m sure you know. Some boutique cultivators have really long cure cycles. Would like to hear your thoughts on curing.
Btw, you might look into multi-ion ppm probes for precisely replenishing your nutrients during the feed week. Always wanted to do that with my top-feed/recirculating clients, but none of them were doing what you are. Best of Luck!
