I spent the past year growing out of doors in Northern California, and I'm starting to plan my next year in a new location. I have a list of tweaks I will be making to my operation, but I feel like the place I could do the most improvement would be in irrigation. In the past season I had 25 plants at one grow which was gravity fed drip line. My issues may have been with length of lines or old hose, but I feel like I had awful results. I don't feel like my pots were evenly watered unless I did it all by hand. I had all the plants hooked up to 3 lines and on a timer. What other methods are available? I have run across a grow that seemed to be using irrigation spikes of some kind, or should I maybe look into pressurizing my system and using inverted sprinklers or something? Ideally I would like to hand water every time it's needed, but for me that isn't a realistic goal. I would appreciate anyone's two cents.
