Hempy Bucket Questions

  1. I've been toying with the idea of replacing my tried and true but definitely not perfect ebb and flow, but I had a few questions and I was hoping that someone who'd used hempy buckets could fill me in.

    When first starting out, do you still fill the humpy bucket until you get runoff out of the drain? That would leave about 2 inches of standing water and a seedling is never going to be able to drink it all. I'm concerned the water will just sit and stagnate, or worse grow something funky and bad.

    Do you let the bucket go dry in between waterings? I'm worried that the plant will get nute burn as it drinks down and concentrates the water.
  2. i have a seedling in one now and would like to see these answered as well.
  3. You water until you see run off come out of the hole.

    You wanna water it everyday until the roots hit the 2" reservoir at the bottom. You'll know when it hits when the growth becomes explosive. Use plain water or full on nutes everyday until the roots hit.

    If you are concerned about funky water sitting, do a flush every 2 weeks, and always feed with fresh nutes.

    Check out my sig, I have a 5 gallon hempy goin on right now.
