I took this empty 25 liter fertilizer container from the trash at Hydrosuppliers.
The company distributes their fertilizer with a socket for screw-in dispenser. That socket will also accept a 3/4 inch PVC male pipe adapter.
With that pipe adapter, the container will link into the piping of a hydroponic system.
I only needed to screw in a 3/4 inch fitting and cut off the top to recycle the container for hydroponics.
( The one fitting costs between 25 cents and 40 cents. Reusing the container saves $5 for the bucket and $1.50 for the other fittings. )
After filling the cut container with Hydroton rocks, I transplanted a Hollyhock plant. I think I can grow the flowering Hollyhocks ten feet high before the end of the season.
( To save money, a gardener could use crushed brick or tile. )
However, roots of the Hollyhocks will jam the container. At the end of the season, I will need to dump out the Hydroton and strain out the roots before planting again.
In the next video, I will adapt a container for a greater flow-through with larger diameter PVC fittings.
