Easy to use, great for growing organic produce, user-friendly assembly, high-impact plastic, unique square design, grows plants from small to large, large water capacity, and low water requirements.

Small capacity and weak air pump.


Setup: This hydroponic system is designed to be super easy to set up right out of the box. The bucket-style system just needs to be filled with water, connected to the air pump, and the growing media added to the lid. The reservoir will hold 2 gallons of water at a time, and you'll have no problem getting the garden up and running within 15 minutes.

Ease of Use: The air pump may not be the strongest on the market, but the rest of the bucket-style system is tough enough to handle years of daily use. The bucket is durable and unlikely to leak, and you'll have no problem figuring out how to operate the system. It may need refilling every few days, but it will be a simple, user-friendly system to use.

Capacity: The square-shaped bucket can hold more plants than you'd get from a round bucket, so you can grow up to 7 or 8 small plants in the same garden. However, this system can also grow medium and large-sized plants, making it one of the most versatile in terms of plant options.

Price: At $60, this is slightly on the pricier side, but a worthwhile investment if you want a simple garden that requires very little time and effort on your part.
