Q: What is a Dutch bucket, or Bato bucket?
A: Dutch Buckets are a reliable, cost effective and easily controlled hydroponic growing methods. In a Dutch bucket system multiple plants/buckets are arranged in the same row and are connected by the same irrigation line and a drainage line circulating back to the reservoir from below. Ideally you can grow more plants with a lesser amount of water if you are using the technique properly.
Q: How does the Dutch bucket hydroponic system work?
A: With Dutch bucket hydroponic systems, buckets are spaced along a common 2” outside diameter water collection pipe. A nutrient rich solution is drip fed to the top of the Dutch bucket, which drains through the siphon elbows into the collection pipe and returns drain water back to the reservoir for recycling. It is important that the buckets are all arranged on the same level surface.
Q: What growing medium should be used?
A: Use grow media that retains water well. Perlite, vermiculate, and clay pebbles are commonly used. We prefer clay pebbles as, in addition to the great water holding properties, the additional weight also adds stability to the bucket and plant roots.
Items arrived as advertised. Bucket, elbows, and net pot were of fine quality. The lids are terrible, material is very thin and lets lots of light into the bucket (you don't want light in the bucket). A redesign of the lid to prevent light pass thru is needed to make this a good kit.
