Is there any way to keep plants watered when I go on holiday? Can’t really ask the neighbours lol!!!
I set a pump into a 5 gal bucket, ran tubes to each plant, then put it on a timer.
It’d be easier, and less failure prone, to have a trusted friend do it.
Welcome! You have gotten some good advice above. Happy growing and have fun on the vacay
Hi @WickedAle. Just browsing thru. What are those spikes called. They are cool for certain applications. Thanks man.
I just searched on eBay. Can’t remember what I used for keywords.
Check out blumat watering system. Works on a drip
I did the same design, but a 25 gal tub for water, ohh boy, came back early from Florida and water all over basement floor, I think It dumped all the water in one feeding, one plant was sev dehydrated, the other three a lil limp, but all perked back up by the next day, one is still struggling, had to put it into a bigger pot today, 15 days into flower, we ll see, I didn’t mess with the root ball so should be fine.
I did a few “dry” runs before I left. Just to make sure everything worked as it should.
I like the blumat concept, but it’s not cheap. Especially for someone like me that only goes away 1x/year.
I bought a lil irrigated kit, didn’t seem to have enough power to push water to 4 plants, it seemed to follow the path of lease resistance.
