This is a self-build kit for a 1-plant Stirponic recirculating deep water culture system. This is the same system featured in our YouTube video but with 1 plant instead of 2. This allows you to maintain 1 plant from the reservoir so you dont have to move your plant around and risk shocking or damaging it to change the water out. It comes with 10 feet of tubing so you can have your plant as far as 5 feet away from the reservoir.
*Please watch our video before ordering as this system DOES NOT come with instructions!
This system includes one 5 gallon bucket with 6" bucket basket and one 5 gallon reservoir bucket. The whole system is connected with 1" soft tubing, and recirculates with a submersible 75 gallon per hour water pump. Each the plant and the reservoir aerated with there own air stones from the double-output air pump that is also included. This system also includes our water level indicator kit that is in our video.
