i'd suggest looking up the grow log forum and checking out some hydro set-ups.  there's a plantiful amount and if unsure about the prices of them, just ask.  good luck on the grow.  and congrats on the newborn!  :cheers:

cost? not sure, if your plants are already existant you would be using a drip irrigation system.... costs should be something like 30$ for the hoses and tubing

+ pump
+ timer
+ reservoir (plastic garbage can)


Basically you would have ur pump on a timer sitting in your reservoir and you would set the timer depending on how much water u want to give ur plant. YOu figure this out by having a certain GPH nozzle on your feeding lines and  say u have a 2gph line and want to give a gal every day ud have it on for 30minutes at one point in the day.

The pump will be the biggest cost a cheap one at homedepot will be 60ish bucks... garbage can will be like 20 for a heavy duty one? and the timer is like 5?

if you wanna skimp on a garbage can you could use a old storage tote or something if you happen to have one laying around I suppose, you could build a box outa wood and line it with vapor barrier too.

Try the Aqua Globes!!! Google it. Hand-blown glass watering tubes set of 4 fo' $20! My mom uses them on her house plants. When I'm away for 2 weeks my mom waters my plants. Gotta love Mom!!!

I don't think those globes would adequately feed a large cannabis plant.

Probably not, but it's better than letting them wither up completely and die, right??? Last time I came home Mom didn't water enough but at least it was enuf to git them through 'till I got home. Good 'ol Mom.

Having them die after spending money on those stupid water globes would be even worse than doing nothing and having them die, right?

Uhhh... You got a good point. I wuz jus' tryin' 2 help. But cum to think of it your drip irrigation wuz much better than the water globes. Usually when sum1 starts growing and runs into this problem, they weren't thinking ahead and don't have a lot of $$$. That's what I wuz thinkin'.
