A DWC kit can be very simple and just as effective as an expensive kit, so here's how we make ours for less than £10.

Cut a hole in the bukets lid so you can put the net pot in place.
Get a pair of scissors or drill bit and where the bucket handle joins the bucket make a hole large enough to push you air line through.
Push your airline throug the hole.
Connect your airstone leave it about 3cm above the pots bottom to stop annoying vibrations.

And of course you dont get no where if you dont feed your plants, this is the easy bit with DWC

Check the PH of your nutrient solution and ensure it is between 5.6 - 5.8.
Fill your pots to a level that will immerse the transplanted seedling root zone while in the net pot.
Mark this level on the side with a knife mark for future reference.
