The unique Oxy-Dripper (commonly known as a Brummie Bubbler) is a self-build growing system that effectively combines bubbling and dripping methods to produce stunning results. It delivers feeds to a single plant via aerated nutrient solution at the root level and also via an automated drip ring – the latter of which allows you to run the system on full with the plant in place immediately after transplanting. For the first time ever then you no longer have to initially hand water young plants growing in a bubbler related set up!
Keep your system sterile with Silver Bullet Roots. It kills 99.99% of root diseases and stays active in tanks for 5 weeks! If you already use Oxy-Plus 11.9%, switch to Silver Bullet and you’ll save 55%.
- The Science
To accommodate and promote super-sized roots, the Oxy-Dripper holds your plant in a 15 Litre Subsurface Tray where it can access aerated nutrient solution from the 90 Litre Utility Tank positioned below (through the roots and the drip ring). Using the drip ring over the entire life cycle will accelerate growth of roots into the bubbling solution – reducing the risk of plant loss through drought, increasing the speed of vegetative growth and boosting root zone vitality. Once roots are established in this oxygen-rich environment, you can expect major improvements to the plant’s nutrient uptake, cell growth/activity and root development. Top Stuff!
The Oxy-Dripper System comes supplied with the equipment required to grow 1 plant in a minimum recommended area of 1m x 1m.

- Q & A
Questions and Answers (13)Whats the optimal temp to maintain with light/lights on and off plus also would you recommend any additional feed to run alongside the suggested vitalink for both veg an flower many thanksThe optimal lights on temperature is between 24-28C measured in the shade at the base of your plants, I wouldn't let the lights off temp drop below 18C, you can use a Klimaheat tubular grow room heater to help with this during the winter months. There are several products that will work well alongside VIta Link Max. I would use Vita Link Bio Pac & Hygrozyme, & use Canna Boost Accelerator, & PK13/14 alongside Vita Link Max Bloom during flowering.
Written by JS | 12 Sep 2013Hi Is it right to be watering constantly while the light is on? Is this during both grow and flower stages? Also how often should the water in the main tank be changed?We would recommend having the pump for the drip ring running all the time your light is on, & run the air pump 24/7. I would change the nutrient solution once a week.
Written by Mike | 22 Jul 2013What is the depth of the subsurface tray?The Subsurface tray is 18cm deep.
Written by TB | 12 Jun 2013On the oxy dropper system is it ok to have the water pump on all time or best to turn it off thanksI would have the drip ring running all the time that the light is on, & have the air pump running 24/7.
Written by John | 24 May 2013Would it be possible to fit more than 1 plant in to a tub? e.g. Keep the large bottom tub for the feed, but place another one of the actual plant holding pots in along side?It is possible to add a second subsurface tray to this system, you would also need another MiMouse pump, 1 metre of 13mm flexi-pipe, 1 13mm tee piece & 1 13mm elbow tp make another drip ring.
Written by JM | 8 Apr 2013What nutrient a and b do you use with the brummie bubbler?I would go with Vita Link Max nutrients for this system.
Written by Brummie | 22 Feb 2013would i put the tank in the middle of the tent or at the side also what do i use to stick the airstone in placeYou would put the tank under the light, many people also cover the tank with Total Blackout reflective sheeting . If you wish to stick your airstone down, you could use blue tack.
Written by JH | 4 Nov 2012on the oxy-dripper system do you leave pump on when lights are off.You can turn off the drip ring pump when the lights are off, but it is a good idea to leave the air pump running 24/7.
Written by nigel | 10 Jul 2012Can you tell me the size of the 90 Litre Utility Tank?The 90 litre tank measures 48 x 80 x 32cm deep.
Written by Andy | 3 Jul 2012how many litres of water do u need to put in at start and do you leave the feed on 24hrs or jus when the light is on??We would advise using 40 litres of nutrient solution in this system, & run both pumps when your lights are on.
Written by con | 17 May 2012what are the measurements of the main tray including height?thanksThe Subsurface tray measures 47cm x 25 cm x 18cm high.
Written by pete | 18 Feb 2012would you be able to put 2 seperate trays in 1 90 litre tank 2 seperate plants and still get a good turn outYou could use 2 of the trays in this system, we would recommend using another airstone in the tank if you want to do this, the plants will not get to the same size as if you just have 1, but they will still perform well.
Written by roni | 16 Nov 2011how do you change nutrientThe easiest way is to use a spare pump & some tubing. I use an MJ1000 pump for this. Put the pump in the tank with a length if 13mm tubing going into a bucket, & run the pump until the bucket is full. You would then repeat until the tank is empty.
