I grow solely under lights. I put an inch or so of water in each tray and wait until the medium (NZS) absorbs as much as it's going to, maybe 4 or 5 hours. For VFTs, I then dump the water out of the tray. (My two trays of Pings and Sundews get to stay wet.) The process is repeated every 6 days, which, in my conditions, allows the VFTs to get almost dry and the Ping/Sundew trays to always have at least some water in them. Occasionally, I top water to flush the pots but this usually causes a lot of traps to close, so I don't do it often.
Don't know if that's the official definition of "tray method" but it works for me.
