Outdoor Grow 2009!
    #225017 - 05/10/09 11:50 PM (7 years, 6 months ago)

Well, my friend Bob is going to start his outdoor grow soon and he needed some help.

The area which Bob has picked out is in the northern midwest region of the united states. He said that the land used to be farm land around 10 years back. There is dense brush, thorns, snakes, tics, and other goodies.

Now the problem:

The day after Bob dug the holes it rained a decent amount. When he went to go check on the area that day he realized that 6/10 holes were filled around halfway with water still and only 4/10 were drained almost completely. The area which he is growing has a flat farmland type terrain but a small portion of it is somewhat like a marsh/swamp. He doubts that the whole field will ever flood but thinks the water table might be a bit high.

Possible solution:

1.Dig holes 1 1/2 times the depth of the 5 gallon buckets which will be buried outside.
2. Drill large holes in the bottom of the buckets
3. Bury the buckets flush with the ground, leaving 6 inches or so of open area under the bucket.

Bob believes that any excess water will drain through the bucket and into the reservoir under it, thus, not drowning the plant.

Will this work?

Just drill holes in the bottom and put it inside another bucket without holes. That way they can survive droughts.

wouldnt that just drown the plant when the bottom bucket fills?

Whoops I was really drunk last night, I forgot to finish. You do that but you hook up the bottom bucket to all the other bottom buckets with tubing and the you get an end coming out in a hole. You put a guage to measure water levels and bend the tube up so you can measure all the water levels in the system. This only works in flatter areas though but if done right you get awesome results with the safety of a backup res. I even turned this into a hydro system with that method but it's a pain in the ass to run.
