Best method for use with 5 gallon buckets
    #11167619 - 10/02/09 02:37 AM (8 years, 9 months ago)

I have 200 5 gallon buckets...the fatty AA PC and plenty of filtration  I am wondering what would be the best  method for me to achieve maximun yield.  This will take place in a 10X15 room.  The buckets are appealing because they are stackable(pyramid style)...and in the case of contaminants....I can just toss the one bucket and not lose a whole tub....Any insight would be greatly appreciated,  I am aware that temp control could be an issue.  What say you?    Thanks in advance..

First you need to make some sort of window for the top (unless they're clear). next you need to punch holes in them for gas exchange.

my guess is that after doing about 5-10 of these, you're going to go out and buy some tubs.

Use Glad Press n Seal for the top of your buckets.
I make my buckets like my monotubs,with holes about an inch above the substrate level and a few holes at the top of the bucket. The holes in my buckets are 3/4 inch in diameter,6 holes on the top half of my bucket and 4 holes on the bottom(well not actually the bottom,but 5 inches from the bottom,so I can have 4 inches of substrate.)

There's a GREAT bucket Tek in the Archives under the "Boxes" subheading.  IT's stickied at the top.  Uses a shower cap for the top of the buckets - that way the shower cap can be pushed down into the bucket right above the substrate layer while it's colonizing (to keep RH high), and then can be pulled back out of the bucket to suck in fresh air (through double-tub style holes) and allow for a lower RH & growth.

Fucking brilliant, I think it was Otto who made it :shrug:

Give it a try.  Stacking the buckets will prove difficult since they have shower caps on top, but simple shelving is cheap & will solve all these problems.
