I just purchased the GroBucket which is a self watering or sub irrigated planter insert. It is designed to convert 5 gallon buckets into self watering planters. It will be getting a full review from unboxing to final grow and harvest.
I love sub irrigated planters and have built several self watering planter bed systems. I use them indoors to grow Cannabis because I am a medical marijuana patient who grows his own medicine.
My outdoor garden space is limited but I want to try a 5 gallon bucket system and I will be running the 3 bucket set outside. All my SIPs are DIY so this will be my first store bought system. You can get these on Amazon and they qualify for Prime shipping too!
Most people who use Sip or self watering planters seem to favor 5 gallon buckets so I am really excited to give the GroBuckets a try.
What Can You Grow With Grow Buckets?
You can grow just about anything from strawberries to herbs and even citrus trees. You can paint your buckets to decorate them or place them in a lager planter container.
GroBucket Self Watering 5 Gallon Bucket System Review
This is a very simple DIY SIP planter. All you need is 5 gallon buckets and to drill one hole in each bucket. Then you slip the insert in, add grow medium and plant. Then all you do is water from the top the first time.
When water runs out of the hole you drilled the reservoir is full. All future waterings will be from the fill tube and it has a water level indicator in it so you will know when to water again.
