We're going on multiple longer-than-a-week trips this summer, lucky us, and our outside Texas plants are begging for dribbles of water. We decided to put a timer on a drip irrigation system, and then we wouldn't have to worry about coming back to an Adam's Family set of plants.
I was hooking up the 1 gal/hour drippers to each pot, and doing the math. I usually water them every two days with a huge dollop from a pitcher. Hmmm, how many dollops in a gallon? How many minutes every other day to equal a dollop? I guess I'll see if I did my math right when I come back to either a lush plantation or a brown oasis.
