We start with very clean 5 gallon buckets. We buy recycled pickle buckets and sanitize them in a bleach solution before every picking. It's important because any kind of debris will block the plants ability to take in water most efficiently, causing stems to wilt. So we keep them clean and add floral preservative. Next [...]
