I use a similar wicking method for many of my houseplants, it works well but takes some time to tweak the size of the wick in relation to the pot size.


#3

Used the siphon hose dripper technique today on some olive tree starts. Used a 4gph pressure compensating dripper

…and my kid’s sand bucket…

Ends up dripping at about the .5 gph rate.

Is that just syphoning out of the bucket or is there a pump in there?


#5

Just out of the bucket, no pump. The bucket of course has to be elevated higher than the dripper. Anybody with a fish tank knows this this is the easy way to change the water…same principle…

Thanks I am looking into watering some tomato plants this summer, I have the drip hose and the drippers, I was just debating drilling holes in the pails, but if I don’t have to this would work just as well.
