    Default Ironman's cheap deal for hydro?

    Found this in my local homebase, seemed a cheap good price, on wheels and very sturdy.

    Any good for anyone?

    Hi mate i bought some of those from argos for storage a few weeks back. I had to stuff some plants in them because of a heating check. Seem sturdy enough. Thought about trying dwc in them myself tbh

    Sub-irrigated planter (SIP) is a generic name for a special type of planting box used in container gardening and commercial landscaping. A SIP is any method of watering plants where the water is introduced from the bottom, allowing the water to soak upwards to the plant through capillary action. [1] It is possible to automate the watering and thus SIPs are popular with professional landscapers in buildings or urban settings. SIPs are available as products, under brand names such as Planter Technology [2] (commercial) and EarthBox [3] (consumer), or as do-it-yourself projects made from plastic buckets and boxes.

    Nice copy and paste there for you badger😉

    Bathtubs make very nice SIP's as well, in the gardening world they are often called wicking beds btw.

    IBC's would also be great and if you only use half the plastic container but the full cage you already have a nice frame. Maybe even use two full cages stacked and you can support a serious tree.
