Drip Irrigation of plants

Depending on your needs you can add fertilizer or you can use a complete or incomplete nutrient solution. You can also control factors as the amount of water in each cylinder. In our experiments we have used ring drippers that put about 100 ml of water per minute of use.

We suggest watering the cylinders the day before you actually plant your seeds or germinated plantlets.

At this moment is very important to have the cylinders protected from excessive sunlight and prevent increases in temperature. We suggest the use of foam insulation attached to wood frames that are secured to the base.
