PRODUCT ALERT for Alaska Grow Buckets !

PRODUCT ALERT !!! Good News for people that are making Alaska Grow Buckets. I found a great source for the perfect Plastic Colander that fits nicely inside a 5 Gal. bucket without handles that stick out and must be trimmed off. 


On the BuyTheCase.net web site you can purchase 12 Arrow brand 4 Qt. Plastic Colanders for only $31.08 which is $2.59 each (plus shipping) ...just ignore the photo on their product page as it is not correct. I checked with this supplier and they are selling the newer model that I recommend.

    What is the purpose of the Colander?

  2. The colander keeps the inlet into the bucket exposed so that the soil bag does not plug it. We get our colander from the dollar store, and use the blue was Matt cloth shopping bags for grow bags...
