Hi all....and my own grow bucket!!!
ive been coming to this site for a while now its very informative but ive only just got round to registering, so a big hello from me to you.
ive done a bit of growing before but now my kids are growing up ive got to be a bit more descreet having half a dosen plants on the windowsill not a good idea.
so im trying out my home made grow bucket and at the momnent seems to be going ok.
i got hold of a 150 litre toughend plastic drum about 15 inches in diameter. i cleand and disinfected it stuck some air holes in the side and lid. on the inside i stuck on black/white reflective sheeting and atached a normal household light fitting. i started with a 100w bulb in this but found this to be a bit too much in such an ennclosed space so i dropped down to a 40w which seems to being doing just fine.
i will keep you all posted as to how this goes and will add some pics so you can see what i mean.
anyway great site. keep it real.
all the best
just to let you know, the grow bucket hasn't worked. not sure why. it started off ok, grew to about 6 inches, then started turning yellow and then shrivelled up. i think it might have been because it was too much off an enclosed space and not enough air circulating. so it looks like i need to set-up the hydro.
you all take care
Sounds like a lighting issue. You cannot use a regular incadescent light bulb. Try looking into some CFLs. And also keep them close to the plant about 1-2" so they do not stretch.
