Hydrofarm created this durable wide lip bucket basket to fit on 3 gallon or 5 gallon buckets for deep water culture (DWC) hydroponic systems. There are many holes in the bottom of these bucket baskets which promote healthy roots with even drainage. Letting the roots grow their own way, right down through the pot, allows for bigger, healthier roots. These baskets work with any kind of media -- hydroponics or soil-based. They're also easier to clean, since water runs right through the holes.
If you've ever experienced hand cramp or fatigue, let our bucket baskets come to the rescue. You'll notice an extra-wide lip along the top of these containers, making them easy to grab, lift, and transport. They're also sturdier for stacking this way and even allow you to rest slim tools right on the lip as you work. Never lose track of what you're working with again!
These containers also serve as lids for our other plastic buckets. Place one of these wide lip buckets inside another one, hook up your water system and nutrients, and start a hydroponic garden anywhere.
