Has anyone tryed adding a small airstone in the bottom of the buckets? I read a growthread acouple days ago where somone did this and got very good results, he was using rockwool cubes instead of perlite/verm mix tho.

I'm for surely going to do a few of these but I do micro growing so they will be in 32oz gatorade containers with perlite bottom and coco peat on top and see how it goes

Hey Andre, if you read the some of the threads by Hempy himself, he specifically mentions that adding an airstone to the bottom of the container does NOT help or improve the original design in any way. He says that it over complicates the simple nature of the Hempy bucket. Take it easy

Hempy buckets rule!

NP Andre hope the info helps you out. Finally got some pics uploaded of my plants in Hempy buckets for anyone whos interested. Theyre all white widow from Nirvana. I also have 3 clones in soil, 1 Hashberry and the other 2 from the bag seed plant I have growing in soil (the big one).

Hello Hempy fans! I've got 6 bagseed seedlings in miniature hempy buckets right now. After this initial run with the buckets I plan on selecting a good Nirvana strain and hopefully find a decent mother I can take cuttings off of. White Rhino/White Widow are my top choices right now.

It seems a lot easier to start in bigger buckets than it is to transplant into bigger buckets, but I have limited room in my wardrobe and since these are seedlings, I decided to go with the BOG style transplant when they need it. This ultimately is the reason why I want to go with clones, so that once rooted I can simply place in a larger bucket and not worry about the sex.

The plants are only about 1 week old and they are starting on the 3rd internode. Vegging under some CFLs now, but my flowering chamber will hold 300 watts of HPS (2x150). The CFLs will be replaced very soon by T5 floros for my veg/mother chamber.

I will take pictures once my cab is finished and everything is setup, but it's a bit messy right now with parts strewn everywhere and no one wants to see seedlings

feeding frequency

Do you guys feed every watering, or alternate with plain h2o?

Sounds excellent Styr! Hope to see some pics soon.

one Q: I use the GH 3 part nutes and feed every time I water. I flush them out once
every week or two because I noticed mine start to get the slightest burn around the
tips of the big leaves when I dont sometimes so now I just do it no matter what. Plus
it can only help because theres going to be some salt buildup no matter what. Take it
easy.
