Dutch Bucket Hydroponics - How It Works & How To Make Your Own Buckets




What do you think about this video?

Deb Cobern: Great tutorial! Thanks for the excellent share... You made me a believer! 

Zak Stewart: Ok I made my dutch buckets today. He clearly stated that you use 3/4 PVC, a 3/4 grommet but used a 1" hole saw. I even used the same grommet from granger using the part number he gave. The hole is way too big, the grommet doesn't touch the sides of the hole. Anyone else had this problem? BTW MHpgardener rocks! But where are the new videos?

Tayfun Okatan: what is the name of that rubber gasket? (MIN.5 SECOND 46)

iwantosavemoney: am really new to hydroponics but I am inspired to do something with it. with all your videos have lot of very good information. I like the idea of very low maintenance systems. it would be just awesome to put a plant in and after the system is all figured out and just have to do light work around it one day every week. what is the drip irrigation system you have their are so many of them out their it is kind of overwhelming trying to find the right one to suit my needs. 

Greg Stabler: I love your hydroponics system, but why do you grow so much? I like listening to you talk, good old country folks.

sarah4one: Would a 2 lb bucket work, or would that be too shallow for the root system?

Quick2000: Thank You!!

Jonatas Botelho: God bless you for sharing your knowleadge. Peace and thanks brother!

Anna Bell: Thank you, thank you! Your video is the best, I have ever seen. You are the best teacher. Just love it!

John Cantelo: sir, this is awesome thank you for sharing your knowledge!

DARTHESE: When he says, "30 minutes, three times a day," at 17:09, does he mean to turn on the pump for 30, 3 times a day?

ciprian ionut: Brilliant explanation Thank you very much

MikoAgain: How does the returned water make it back to the plants without manually carrying it and manually watering the plants?

David Stone: What control are you using @ 9:52 on the post? Is that for temperature control?

Ali Starkley: Nice job! Your video helped make the system set up much more clear to me. Thanx!

hesham elbadry: Dears, If perlite is not available; is it possible to use something else? peatmoss for example?

Brad Kershaw: Excellent video. Thank you very much !

Veronica Kelly: Bless your heart! You were clear on how to get this done. My next step is to try this myself.......This was Golden! Thanks and God Bless.

Douglas Alan: Incorporate H2O3 into the drip........

Ron Mauer: Hi mhpgardener, From what I've learned from your 2012 video, leafy plants work good (maybe best) using the Kratky method, and fruit and veggies work better in a Dutch bucket. Does your experience since 2012 still supported these conclusions? I appreciate your videos. Well done. Ronl

Timo muxlow: Your a brilliant teacher ! Thank you for the time and effort you put into explaining the setup.

Kevin24018: couldn't you put rocks in the bottom of the bucket to take up some of space so you don't need as much perlite? how much room do the plants actually need in the bucket? the old roots looked like 1/2 the bucket would be plenty of room?

Dionne G: You are an amazing teacher. Keep up the good work 

nazir ahamad: Thank you SO much for the extremely informative video.

Lynn Kocal: I have learned so much from you. Thank you! Out of all the "how to" videos I've watched, you are the best. God bless you for all the hard work you and your wife do. Question: how many 5 gal. buckets will one of those 20 lb. bags of perlite fill? We live way out in the sticks so have to make long trips to get supplies. Thanks!

Big Dog: What do you use in the water? Fertilizer, what kind how much? When do you need to add more any way to test water?

Mary Beard: Ok built my system last year and it did great all through the winter. After much rain and lots of moisture they developed some leaf mold. Now the plants are doing better but the size of tomatoes re much smallerand the plants are about 7 ft tall. At what point do I change the plants out?

Doug Johnson: Great video! I'm just about to make my first venture into hydroponics.

HWP: Hands down the best tutorial. Detailed info, good pace, excellent delivery. This is a really great easy to understand video. Thanks man!

George Cade: This a very well done video. I want to thank you for all the info and taking time to show us how your system works......

Vijay Prasad: Great video! Inspired me to go for it. Very clearly explained. Thanks a lot!

Thomas Lakutis: Great video I intend to try it this year. Just out of curiosity in what state are you located?

Robert Hood: You do an excellent job of explaining everything so anyone can understand. Thank you! Where did you get your greenhouse?

Dean's of Nomadica: Bless you Brother, God has lead me here recently and I'm learning so much. Thank you. You mentioned getting oxygen to the roots via air stone. Question. Can you use a open drain hole without the PVC pieces in the bottom of the bucket? A rain gutter could be used to collect run off in this case. What would be the down side of this idea? Thank you

David Stone: Can't you put the plant in a grocery store's mesh/fiber bags before you put it in the perlite for easy cleaning?

dymondwillow2: I counted 19 buckets on the right side....

William Planas: If I use an Ecoplus 396 for this kinda set up and bought a 1/2" black poly tube what fitting work because either they are to big or to small please help, you have inspire me to make this system Thank you MHPGARDENER :)

Saravanan R: how much can a tomato plant yield in this system does it work in south india 

Warner Mathis: Can you use sand iinstead of pearlite or rock?

Ron Alan: I presume a 2 gallon bucket would work fine too since the bato buckets are about 2 gallons?

Jordan Attias: hey man thanks so much such an awesome video saved it for when i am ready !

Rollin Caswell (swamprat47): Just wanted to say, that after watching your videos last Spring, I decided to try out your dutch bucket system. I found it hard to find buckets that were at least 3 gallons, and when shopping for perlite, I found the price way to expensive for me to afford. I decided to go with what I had available around the house. I came up with using 5 2lb plastic coffee containers. (Maxwell house and Folgers) I installed the rubber grommets along with the pvc elbows just as you did in the buckets. I filled the coffee containers with regular pea gravel from menards, filled up my reservoir with hydroponic tomato fertilizer I found on ebay in Ohio and transplanted my tomato plants into the coffee containers filled with pea gravel. I just want people and yourself to know that I had pretty good success with this. I had a decent yield of tomatoes, plants grew out of hand, I had to prune like crazy mainly because I didn't have much height in this proto-type greenhouse I had put together very quickly out of cattle panels so I only had around less than 6 feet of room from the floor and the containers were on a bench about 2 feet up from the floor. 

obadiamunono: this guy is great,he makes it look so simple and inspires you go on ahead and try it.Thank you SIR.

Biostok Foliage: Question on your water cycle timer, do you run all day or you'll have a timer set up on a timely basis? Would it also hurt the roots system if i were to run it 10hr straight?

Lance Heaps: Have you ever tried growing hops with hydroponics? If so, how were the results. If not, do you think it would work.... and how well would it work? Thanks for your time.

Melissa DeAnn Nez: Superb! Many thanks for making this video! I learned a lot. 

Adam Grayson: This man would be a messiah during a zombie apocalypse.

LearningDaily: thanks for sharing
