Hey Lord Doobie
I have no experience in doing that so I cant answer
your question. I wish I could but I cant, sorry man.
I was actually thinking of doing this exact thing next time.
Just fill the bottom 2 inches with perlite and the rest with Promix and I think
it should work pretty well. Ive just seen a fellow grower who just started
using Promix and it has made a huge difference in the growth of his plants. I
figured since its a hydroponic medium that you should be able to use it in a
Hempy bucket but you would probably have to water it a little less than if
you were using a straight perlite/verm mixture. If you decide to try it Id like
to see some pictures
Theres no dumb questions yamaha_1fan
but from what Ive read, I
think that using pumps and drippers ect. does take away from "the simplicity
of the hempy bucket", but if it works better for you, lets say because you
arent always going to be around at the right time to water your plants, then
why the hell not go ahead and try it?
I dont see why it wouldnt
work as long as you keep those reservoirs filled.
Heres a few pictures of my Kali-Dream and Hashberry, both 40 days into
flowering in 5 gallon Hempy buckets (70/30 perlite/verm.). Been feeding them
with GH 3 part nutes, a cal-mag supplement and sweet leaf.
