Hey, there. I am the Business Manager/Partner for a small company called GroTech Garden Products. First off, to be completely transparent, I know next to nothing about growing cannabis, but I’ve received multiple inquiries about using our GroBucket gardening kits for growing cannabis. So, in an attempt to better understand what our product may offer, I did what most folks do and searched YouTube, which led me to this Growers Network. I’m not sure I’m even posting this in the correct category, but hopefully Nick will steer me in the right direction if not.
Basically, the GroBucket is a device that turns a 5-gallon bucket into a portable self-watering container garden. I’ve learned, many cannabis Growers already use 5-gallon buckets and DIY techniques to achieve similar results, but the GroBucket takes mere minutes to set up and has added benefits, so for those who grow more than a few plants, it’s a real time saver. From what I’ve been told, please feel free to correct me if I’m wrong, it’s very important to maintain consistent watering and ph-balance while growing cannabis, especially at certain growth stages. Since the GroBucket provides nearly 2 gallons of water to the plant, once the soil has been soaked and the reservoir filled, it’s very beneficial to meeting these parameters. It also has a water-level indicator that makes knowing when to water easy and the air gap created between the device and the bucket drain hole encourages healthy root growth and protects against rot. I’ve been told our system is helpful with the mothers, especially.
I’ve had a few cannabis Growers, who’ve found us via YouTube and on Amazon, tell me the system is working very well and I’m interested in getting some more substantiated feedback from some experienced Growers. Here’s a short video on how our product works. You can find more details on our YouTube channel (needs updating) and on our GroBucket website. We are also listed on Amazon
We currently sell exclusively on Amazon, but are contemplating setting up eCommerce, so we can sell in bulk to folks who need large orders for growing specific plants. Before we go to the hassle and expense of coming up with our own inventory tracking and payment system, I want to test things out and see if this is even something serious Growers will be interested in purchasing in bulk.
What I’d like to do is offer a complimentary 3-Pack GroBucket garden kit to some interested folks who are willing to stay in touch and provide honest feedback of their experience growing in GroBuckets, complete with photos. Ideally, as I said, I request experienced Growers who can provide expert advice on specifically how GroBuckets are better than other techniques and/or how we may improve the product to best meet specific needs.
I’m happy to provide that feedback here on the forum, once we get some people willing to try out the GroBucket system and share their experience. If you are interested, maybe the best way is to start a conversation here and share about your expertise and growing experience and how you may be willing to try out GroBuckets and possibly compare against another “test group” of your current technique. Does that sound fair? I’m open to suggestions. I obviously can’t send out countless freebies–we are a very small start-up company, so I hope you’ll be willing to allow me to determine who may be the best fit for this test group based on our conversation. As I said, I’m open to suggestions. I ask for US residents only to help minimize shipping expense.
