Introduction: 5 Gallon Bucket Hydroponics
I did this for about 30$ but I already had the pump it's relatively simple to make and works good for indoor planting
Step 1: Things You Need
A 5 gallon bucket (got mine at homedepot)
A lid for the bucket
A pond water pump (or some sort if water pump)
A 4 outlet retrofit drip manifold (also got at Home Depot)
1/4 inch drip line
4 three inch pots with holes in the bottom
And don't forget the most important thing safety glasses
Step 2: The Top Lid
Well with the pots I have I needed to cut it down so it would rest on the edge that was sticking out you don't need to do this if you have a hydroponics pot then draw out the holes for the pots then cut them out
Step 3: The Main Tank
Get your pond water pump and connect it to the adaptor then place it in the middle of the bucket then mark where you want the cord to come out then cut
Step 4: Pump Assemble
Then cut the pipe to the length needed to get it to your plants then mark holes where the pipe will come out then drill holes for pipe then add the pots
Step 5: Finishing
Ad a fill line then pick your growth medium like hydroton or clay I'm using a sponge with dirt over it then plant your seeds in then bring to where your going to grow your plants and fill it it also works better if you have a timer for your pump so you can water your plants without worry
