first off, be very careful when you make the hole in the bucket...

i bought 2 GH water farm kits recently. check out this video. this is what convinced me to grow hydro. (along with green house seed companys grow video for jack herer...) mine are pretty much the same except i have 4" air stones for each bucket and 10" net pots.

Why exactly did that video convince you to go with hydro?

well, the green house seed co. jack herer grow video really got me looking into hydro, and then i found that video and it made hydroponics look possible. i never really understood it, never looked into it. i always thought it was more complicated than it is. bubblebuckets seemed like the way to go in my current situation.

DWC, lets stick with a term that doesn't sound so lame :wink:


But back to the subject, DWC and Ebb and Flow are the shit.

No worries man.  I just hate the terms bubble buckets, it sounds so amateurish.  Deep Water Culture sounds more professional. 


What do you mean wait for them to get big enough to put in the hydro?  I put them in right off the bat.  If they are rooted you can put them in your system.
