Supplies needed to grow cannabis in a space bucket

To grow cannabis in a space bucket, you will need the following supplies:

-A bucket (preferably with a lid)
-Potting mix
-Cannabis seeds or clones
-A grow light (LED or CFL are best)
-A fan for ventilation

Creating the space bucket​

Assuming you have all the necessary materials, creating a space bucket is actually a pretty simple process. Here's a step-by-step guide:

1. Start by cutting two holes in the lid of your bucket - one for your air intake and one for your exhaust. Make sure these holes are big enough to accommodate your chosen ventilation components (e.g. an inline fan and ducting).

2. Next, line the inside of your bucket with reflective material (this will help maximize light efficiency).

3. Now it's time to add your grow lights. You can either suspend them from the top of the bucket or attach them to the sides - whatever works best for you. Just make sure they're positioned close to the reflective lining so that as much light as possible is being directed towards your plants.

4. To complete the space bucket, add some kind of medium (e.g. soil or coco coir) along with your plants, and then seal up the lid.

And that's it! Once you've completed these steps, all you need to do is monitor your plants and provide them with the appropriate amount of water and nutrients according to their needs.

Planting the cannabis​

To plant the cannabis, you will need to start with a soil mix and then add some perlite for drainage. You will also need to add some water to the mix. Once you have mixed the soil together, you can then add your cannabis seeds. You will want to plant them about an inch apart. Once you have planted the seeds, you will want to water them lightly.

You will then need to place your bucket in a warm location where it will get plenty of sunlight. You should also make sure that the bucket has good ventilation.
