Dutch Bucket Hydroponic Tomatoes - Lessons Learned and a New Crop

Ajoutée le 7 mars 2013

It's time to start a new crop of hydroponic tomatoes in the dutch buckets. But first, I need to look back at what was learned from the last crop. I noticed a bit of algae in the bottom of the buckets, so I now have them covered with black plastic. The paint strainers are fine to use again. The perlite is being re-used and is showing no signs of problems.

I give tips about where to get buckets and the grommets, and show my newest system. All together, I have 40 tomatoes going in 3 different systems, and working just great. If you have questions about what fertilizer I use, all of the answers are in the following video : http://youtu.be/vYv9iu2NI3M Dutch bucket hydroponics is not the least bit complicated. So if you're struggling with growing tomatoes, don't have a garden, or just don't have much time, give it a try. I think you'll like the results.


Dutch Bucket Hydroponics - Tips & Expanding the Reservoir

Ajoutée le 13 avr. 2013

In my current Dutch Bucket setup, I'm using 27 gallon reservoirs. They are matched up with 18-20 plants, not a very good ratio. So I'm having to constantly add water, about 10 gallons each day. I really need a larger reservoir. What I have done is add a 55 gallon plastic drum, connected by plastic tubing, and then hooked to a float valve in the reservoir. What this does is triple my overall capacity, thus enabling me to now put the system on a timer and spend my time doing other things.
Also in this video I talk about using pump filters, using buckets without lids, my results with open-pollinated Big Beef, and some surprising things about Cherokee Purple tomatoes.
