You can put them in the buckets but . The thing you wanna keep in mind is the root system . With that being said the first question you should ask yourself is will your roots reach the water in the bucket . If not you might wanna water them by hand until they do . You can speed up the root growth with many variety's of nutrient line ups . Using products like this will do 2 things , increase the nutrient uptake as well as promote mega root growth ! But for now i highly recommend hand feeding your baby if your going to put her in the bucket until she gets a kick ass root mass going . I hope this information is useful in your quest to understanding when you can use your buckets ! -Happy Growing!

I’m doing DWC buckets. I’m 5 weeks into veg and need to top up the water occasionally. Should I be pumping the old water out every so often and putting new solution in, or do you guys just keep topping with ph’d nute water?

If you do swap out the water, what’s your procedure?

Hey there @CrazyDaver nice question! With individual DWC 5 gallon reservoirs like myself and you use you absolutely do want to be topping off the water daily as to ensure the proper Nutrient to water ratio, however you do not want to keep the same nutrients in the reservoirs for longer than a week. A completely reservoir swap every 7 days is highly recommended and usually comes with the change in nutrient schedule as well. If you have any more questions feel free to ask them! :sunglasses:

You want to get rid of the water every 9 to 10 days or so to prevent the nitrates from basically rotting and causing problems. changing the water every week is considered too frequent 10 days should be okay, but you need to make sure you dont need to do it sooner. Just take the "used" water and either throw it away or use it on your garden plants - they love that! hope this helps ! :rocket:
