New Style Growing Bucket! Opinions Wanted!

I patented this agricultural bucket some time ago and now currently having more 3D printed for testing. It mixes an aeroponic style with deep water culture. It has an upper "halo" that normal 5 gallon buckets do not possess. The halo has aeroponic misters on the inside and the tubing is on the exterior for easy access and possible clog cleaning. The object is to go directly from a clone to full grown adult all in one system. Please let me know what you think! Thanks!

Do you fill the void with hydroton or a netpot or what?

This is a quick system I put together for testing. Not a huge fan of the setup but I will say it works like a charm (although no grows yet). I prefer a separate control bucket and a recirculating under current. I think the LPA (low pressure aeroponic) and deep water culture will work well together.

I would think just a plastic lid that would sit on the top with a hole cut in it and a net pot in the middle, maybe with rockwool in the netpot would work like a charm. It would hold your plant and the nozzles should spray right on it, plus the lid would block light from the roots. :goodjob:

I would just make a few adjustments, I would put the pump in a separate reservoir and put it on a cycle timer to spray every so many minutes. Then you could change the water every week or so. It would be like a mini uc/aeroponic hybrid setup, love it.
