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




What do you think about this video?

pachcha tamilan: using plastic is injurious to health, avoid this system

kokogro: who let this redneck out of the KKK

Tammy Lawrence: need some help . I grow in dirt. but i saw your dutch bucket system so i built one but the PH keeps changing every day or so. it's killing me lol. My buckets or black My holding tank is black. So why is the ph changing from a 6.8 to a 7.6 or a 7.8 in one day?

Mandy Blake: Great vid. I just have one question: What is at the end of the black line that supplies the drip lines? A plug of some kind I'm assuming.

LeRoi Goodridge: I have been a backyard gardener for a while now, looking to get into agriculture in a much larger way. I get some good results but after seeing these videos, I will set up a few buckets and see what happens. If I get the results I expect, I will be going hydroponics all the way. may even include the pvc type as well. I like the fact that It does not include any mud.....Will keep you posted how it goes.

ankur patel: Can 1 gallon bucket does the same job...?? 

bigscrambler: By any chance would you have a part# for the grommets. 

Automate Hydroponics: What a great way to grow food for yourself and your family! Thanks for this!

Chase Fraley: how did you build your greenhouse? it looks great and sturdy. do you have the plans or is there a place i can find the plans? thanks. and thanks for the great video. i really appreciate the detail you go into. 

Alexander Køpke: Great video! I don't understand the reservoir thing at the bottom tho. Would it work if it didn't have the reservoir and the water ran directly back to the water pump reservoir? 

SlyRevenger: I was worried about the length of the video because of my download limit, but I am so happy that I continued, thank you very much. You have re-enthused me to get into my garden. THANKS HEAPS FROM DOWNUNDER!

Logan Smith: Do the plants at the end of the drip line get the same amount of water as the plants at the beginning of the drip line? 

bahemut0: Great video. I am in the middle of assembling my buckets just as you laid out here. I would like to know what purpose the elbow on the inside of the bucket serves? Can I leave this out?

Philip Cartledge: Long Distance High Five MHP. I am from Australia and just starting in Hydroponics and Aquaponics. Your explanation on setting up Dutch Buckets is fantastic. I didn't know it was so easy. Thanks man.

gii SB: MAJOR, good job and thanx

Ernest William Odchimar: amazing videos, im gonna try this thank you much. lookin forward in wwatching more from you, more power.

steve Matthews: Hi everyone. You say your no expert but I have learned more today from you than in all the books I have purchased. I am leading a project in South Wales,UK, to make a group of senior citizens to be as self sufficent as they can be and I decided to check out hydroponics for this. I have just shown 32 of these people this video and now they are sayinf when do we start. We have just purchased a piece of ground with 3 40 foot polytunnels on them which was used for flowers and looks like it will do perfect. So now I shall be studying your system with great eagerness. Keep up the good work.You say your no expert BUT from now your my Hydroponics GURU.

kevfrom norfolk: Niice.. Excellent info man... Utterly LOVE your greenhouse.. Very nice indeed :) Look forward to more :) UK Luv & Peace

Kevin Dillon: Hey mhpgardener, You may have said this but I can't find where. Where do you get the black plastic wrap you used to cover the white buckets? Is this some sort of shrink wrap process? Thanks! Love the videos and have learned so much from your 'easy to understand' instructions.

Wicked Proxy: With no electricity could a person do a gravity feed setup by putting a bucket up higher and hooking it up to the feeding line? Then the return line like you have there. Just use a bucket to dip in the return reservoir and fill the feed bucket. 

SpockMcoy Issmart: experience creates genius.....thank you.

Tanner Stage V: Some plastics are food safe and some are not. It is why Lowes or HD have several different colors of PVC pipe in the plumbing section. Random plastic is not optimal. We are all going to die, but I don't think this Dutch bucket is going to get ya.

chugiakian: I have heard that you can use crushed coconut shells for the base, instead of perlite, what are your thoughts on that?

AMANDA REHBERGER: YOU CERTAINLY DID KNOW WHAT YOU WERE DOING FROM WHERE I AM THANKS YOU GAVE ME THE CONFIDENCE TO TRY IT.

Justgivemethetruth: Brilliant. ( however, I do have a question about PERLITE) It is not cheap either, is it, and also the dust from what I heard is carcinogenic and will damage your lungs? Am I misinformed on that? Maybe it's Verminculite that is bad for the lungs. Also, if you use the PERLITE, can it be re-used ... and how many times? Really amazing videos.

Ram Prasad: I loved your videos - great advice - I am a fan of your videos and will follow your advises. Few Qs: 1. several videos on YouTube talk about pH values to be checked before starting and continuously check - I didn't see that in any of your videos. should I worry about that? 2. Can you give us an overview of your investment (hydroponics only - from start to finish) and income - per whatever units you choose? 3. Whats your personal opinion on the taste difference between a soil grown vs hydroponically grown tomatoes? Really appreciate your responses.

Povertyisa bich: Woot, found you again +(Add)

countryguy: What type of aeration pump do you use?

Amit Bhardwaj: That was really nice. Good presentation. Thanks for sharing.

Geppy Gep: That was very informative. Thanks for taking some of that spare time to make the world a video-thats growers luv right there. What state are you in?

zachary Arnaud: Is this process be used in only green garden(that is covered one)?

Greg Elam: Just so everyone knows you can get the automatic float valves at Tractor Supply for under $4. item SKU 1084583

Don MACKIE: Happy days quite a cost effective low maintenance system good job mate

Mahmood Hasan Choudhury: great teacher thank you hasan

Jennifer Langley: Thank you for this video! And for so many of your other videos. There is a lot of information here that I'm excited to use. That you take the time to do these videos and share you experience and knowledge is so helpful. I've gone from having heard about hydroponics and aquaponics but not knowing the first thing about how you'd actually do it, to understanding enough to feel confident about experimenting with a few things to see how they go. I'll be starting very small, but it's a start that probably wouldn't happen without your videos. So again. Thank you so much.

helloman1976: How many gallons of nutrients do you need PER plant? Is there a recommended number like say, 2 gallons per plant? I'm planning on doing a nutrient change out ever 7 days so how many gallons would I need per plant to do that? Also, do you top off your reservoir with fresh water, not at all or with 1/4 strength nutes etc? My concern is that the ppms rise on their own every day if you don't put water back in and my other concern is that if you add more nutes, even 1/4 strength, you're raising the ppms and may burn your plants. Is this sound thinking or am I off base here? Thanks for your help!

cannedpixels: Thanks for taking the time to share your experience. Great presentation.

beyackabiotch: Quick tip: They make coarse perlite that is not dusty, same cheap price. The chunks average a 1/2 in size, apposed to the tiny gravel you normally see that gets very dusty.

Russell Bushnell: accent from georgia?

Rita J. Mallett, J.D.: Thank you for sharing. God Bless You!

AggieBonfire14: non smokers should wear masks when pouring perlite. the dust is abrasive to the lungs

Saint Patrick: Awesome

jnowicki71: I think I am going to make the change from SFG to Hydro after seeing THIS video! We are in SC near Charleston....how do you fair with the bugs and diseases that are in this part of the country?? Do you have same issues with Blight & Wilt and so forth?

Chinawenchang: Great is works and simple way to start a hydroponic ,,,thanks

mhpgardener: That's a neat idea Katie. Or maybe hook it up to a hamsters wheel, LOL With the pump cycling for only 30 minutes, it shouldn't take much to supply the needed current.

chocloandbanana: You're the best!!!! I'm growing hydroponics tomatoes. The plants are only two months old and they already look great. Do you think I could pull this together without making the hole in the buckets and having the returning water and all of that which you explain on this video? I can't buy all the pvc tubes and water pump right now. Thank you!

Eleaz21: great video with great information, thank you!

Eltron2010: best explained of all the videos I've seen

Benjamin Selby: Great video, thanks! Quick question: that small dripper hose is the only thing that pours water and nutrients onto the plant, right? So is it OK that the dripper output is very localised? It doesn't spray over the entire top of the perlite to wet it evenly? Is that OK?
