    What should I use for a drip system in my 4x4 tent?

    Merry Christmas fellow growers.

    Have a 4x4 tent. And want to get a self watering system going. Any thoughts people ?
    Never installed or used one before. Am looking forward to them having a proper schedule
    Also I feed my plants nutrients every other feeding.
    For example.
    Day 1water.
    Day 2 nothing
    Day 3 nutrients
    Repeat
    How would I control this with a drip system?
    And does my schedual look good ?
    Thx guys and merry Christmas
    Oh ya prob going to buy on Amazon.ca.
    Cheers

    Still trying to sort out the same question for my 4x4 but I'm pretty sure it's going to involve the use of these. Trying to figure out what to do with runoff is my snag

    I'm using smart pots 5gallon fabric. And sitting in 15"saucers. I'm geuss in I'm going to have to raise the plants and have a reservoir that I'll have to empty? Or raised the pots in the saucer and let the run off evaporate ??

    @Grow big, another solution is DWC 5 gal water buckets. They're self contained and easy to maintain. Or you can use SIP Buckets....I've never used those, but other members on here have. @Comet, @Horse Badorities @Bandit420

    Personally I'd do a very low dose constant feed rather than the water feed water plan.

    Regarding SIP....I just follow the plan layed out by Earthbox. If you do that and then buy and modify the Earthbox AWS to fit a SIP bucket you have continuous autowatering thru the wicking action of the SIP and the water used will be replenished by the AWS. You can leave a garden on it's own for weeks if the supply tank is big enough

    Bandit420 thx man. Never thought to use a low dose constant feed. Then wouldn't have to change nothing.
    what are the disadvantages about this. ? Does anybody know.
    I'm guessing would only have to change the tank when I'm ready for the 12/12stage

    I think if using a dripper in pot the adjustable flow at dripper are easier to unplug buildups if need be by cranking it around some.
    You stick a bunch of females together and don't want any problems? Good luck. They are going to mess you up.
