According to mhpgardener (https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=mhpgardener), Dutch buckets work better for plants bearing fruit and vegetables than the Kratky system (http://ronmauer.net/blog/?page_id=4440) that works well (no electricity and almost no maintenance) for leafy greens.

Electricity is needed to automate the system. But if the grid goes down, there is a work around to save the plants. Here is how to set up the system.


Improvements and fixes.
