Instead, the bucket is filled almost to the top with solution and air is provided to the roots as the plants drink and the water level decreases.

-All systems use special blue tinted tubing for water level gauges. This is to prevent algae growth while still allowing for visual identification of water levels.

3. The Kratky Method.
The DIY Drip is an inexpensive new take on an industry classic. Using two black buckets and a clever air powered water delivery manifold, this system uses a low powered air pump to water the plant from the top down using it’s own catch basin as a reservoir. Depending on your plants needs, these units can be run on a timer for timed irrigation or left running with free flowing media for heavy feeding plants .
-All systems require the use of food safe black buckets such as the one featured here. This is very important as these buckets will not leach the saline from the nutrients and the light proof black color prevents mold and algae growth.
To that end, today we will be focusing on 3 popular single plant hydroponic systems that are cheap, easy to use and highly productive. These are a favorite with our customers and we are happy to share them with you as well.
2. The DWC Bucket

Fill the bucket with water and nutrients up until the point where it reaches the plants roots, but doesn’t fully submerge the plug if possible. Once you’ve got your water level set and your ready to go ahead and place the lid on the bucket. You’ll want to gradually lower the water level as the plants roots grow to keep them about ¾ of the way submerged.

The DIY Top Drip, the Deep Water Culture or DWC, and the Kratky Hydroponic bucket systems are great for Single Plant Hydroponics Systems. High productive do-it-yourself indoor gardening for the budget conscious grower.

H&G also adds extra iron as the water pumps can deplete your iron from the solution if special precautions are not taken. H&G is one of the only people I know that takes this into consideration for there formula’s that are made for recirculating systems. Another great company that specializes in Hydro nutes is Dynagro formula’s. There bloom alone one part formula is GREAT product to use for MJ

FYI- Humbolt is just a copy cat company that happens to copy rip off artist like AN!! User beware! Dont be fooled by the hype and the 30 different bottles of crap they push! If your serious about growing, then you want to make sure and go with a serious company like H&G or Dynagro that do not play the market hype games and push 30 different bottles of crap!
Hey man I just bought house and gardens aqua flakes, and most of the additives. I am also setting up 10 dwc bubble buckets 5gal and plan on running h&g the whole time. I use house and gardens in a water farm for two weeks now and everything has been great. Fantastic results so far, but it only been 2 weeks. Keep us updated on what you find about h&g and dwc buckets. Also how do you plan on using yours?

I have 10 dwc buckets all single unit do not connect to any Res. I like rdwc but there are too too many problems in it if you do not get it exactly perfect and I don’t see my self ready for it yet. I will run it in the future when I am ready with solo units. Anyways, I will change each buckets nutrient every Sunday and top them off throughout the week. How about you?

H&G is way better than AN! Aqua Flakes by H&G is probably one of the best 2 part nutrients on the market and is made specifically for recirculating systems. AN makes lots of bogus claims that are just not true, and though you can use them in hydroponics they are really designed for soil mainly and soiless at best.
I am skeptical that air will cause a problem with any nutrient. I think you should just try it.
H&G is a great nute line really clean and low in salts, I’m using the Cocos in a recirculating top drip beautiful results and I’m a week away from flushing. My only gripe with H&G is that they have a shitty online nutrient calculator about a month ago it was offline for like 2 weeks and the website said they were updating so I called and asked why not keep the old one up while making the new calculator, the dude says ” we had to take it down because it was wrong” I was like WTF ?? I been feeding my plants with your calculator..They are always so fucked up with their feeding schedules and nutrient calculator its so annoying because they are cost a pretty penny. Their entire line will run you about 320 bucks. Worth it though in my opinion some really great nutes their coco line is the best.

Dont worry about using air stones as we use plenty of air stones over the years with H&G products and there is no worry there.

hello RIU buddies! i have a question about house and garden nutrients when used in DWC systems. I mostly run Advanced Nutrients, but i do run a few of H&G…
