The Black Bucket Drip Hydroponic System includes a 5 gallon black bucket with handle, a 3.5 gallon insert, drip ring with pumping column, 1/4" air tubing and air pump.

  • I saw this product on Amazon and wanted to buy it but I don't know what kind of nutrients to buy. Could you help me figure out what nutrients would be best for a rose bush or a small kitchen herb garden?
    You can use any nutrient line that you like. For small herbs, however, you don't need much. They can make it pretty easily with a low ppm level. For flowering plants you need a higher level ppm bloom nutrient.
  • How much water do I use for the black bucket drip system?
    You should use about 4 gallons of water. The 5 gallon capacity on the black bucket is hindered by the fact that it has a 6" net pot lid which takes away some of the water capacity.
  • what pump to run drip system
    Hello Gary, The Black Bucket Drip system runs on an Air Pump using the Venturi effect. Air is pumped down the irrigation tube and a pressure differential is created where water then travels up the tube and drips over the growing media. The air pump used pushes 1.6 liters of air per minute. If you have any other questions please let us know. Best Regards, Atlantis Hydroponics
