Bato Hydro Trough - 11 liter - black
The Bato, or Dutch Bucket, is designed for hydroponics growing of larger plants such as tomatoes, peppers, cucumbers, eggplants, etc. It can be used with various growing media like expanded clay pellets, perlite, vermiculite, and coconut coir (all available on this site). With the two elbows (included with each bucket) installed in the drain, a small reservoir of water/nutrient solution can be maintained in the bottom to keep the media and root system from completely drying out between nutrient cycles. The elbow extends below the bucket making it easy to connect to a 1 1/2 inch PVC pipe for water/nutrient return to the reservoir, a great way to save water.
