I was wondering if any one has tried this? I thought about cutting a 5 gallon bucket about 5" from bottom sliding a 5 gallon fabric pot in it drill over flow hole at 1" from top of plastic bottom bucket. Fill fabric pot with perlite to just above plastic . rest with grow medium??? Think it would work? You would have water res on bottom 4" fabric to breath rest of the way up. This might have already been done if so let me know how it worked! Thanks.
I think it might present you with a couple problems. The dirt will stay wet bad. With out proper aeration and circulation the water will go bad quickly also bad.
It would be kinda of a cross between a hydro and a dirt grow. You could give it go see what happens.
