Thanks for reading!
I went with the second method described in this post with a few modifications. Instead of seltzer bottles I used this corrugated perforated pipe and this bulb guard tube from Lowe's.
- They have the capacity to hold large volumes of water without over-watering plants.
- You don’t need to water as frequently. Just fill it up until the planter starts draining from the overflow tube, and you’re good to go for a week or two (depending on capacity and your regional climate). Going away for a week or two, but can’t find someone to come water your garden? No problemo!
- They’re portable; I can start plants that are vulnerable to hard frosts sooner, because I can move the planters inside at night/on colder days.
- The built-in reservoir system gives your plants’ roots access to much needed oxygen, in addition to the water.
