the tubes are normal plastic and not pvc. They are part of the planter box. It is for bottom watering the reservoir.

I've thought of trying those planters out, it looks as though they work nicely for two plants. Whats your personal opinion on them Ohm? And what medium are you filling them with?

Even though I am not a fan, I named my hookah today "the black knight" because it resembles him with the wind


I got hooked on the Injustice iOS game recently. It's just say I'm all tapped out <grin>.

I have four self watering containers. Two are by earth box, and two are from gardeners supply. I use them outside, for my peppers and tomatoes, with commercial potting mix/ perlite. They work very well for my purposes.

I don't see why they would not work indoors, with the significant caveat that one must have some sort of drainage or catch basin because any excess water flows out from a overflow hole near the bottom.

My impression is that tomatoes and peppers like steady, even moisture. They don't seem to mind wet feet. That would be my main concern for MMJ, but I would think it would be fine as long as one transplanted largish plants into the SWCs.

Best,
WS

Long overdue update. My maw had a shoulder injury that essentially broke off part of the humerus in her arm and was in and out of the hospital for a couple months. Then we had to wait about 6 months to get cardiac clearance and to get the surgery(replacement) done. Then I cracked and went in the hospital again but this time I stayed for a few weeks while my brother kept the garden alive. He watered with straight RO water for all this time and my genetics are looking a bit weak. My garden and I are both on the mend. I took 21 cuttings combined of Blueberry and Jillybean just a few days ago, put the oversized blueberry and jillybean mothers into the bloom area, and transplanted all that was in veg into bloom(some were mothers and others were put into bloom.) I now have 3Kw of light in bloom being occupied, an empty veg closet, and four plants in #7 pots as mothers(Trainwreck looking the weakest, the next jillybean mother, superskunk, and Jack Herer.) I was supposed to pick up a cutting that I long coveted called Cannatonic today but the guy didn't show up to meet me. He has my phone number to notify me when it is dropped off. Pics to come. Don't be surprised to see some sad looking plants as I admit this is about the worst I have ever seen my garden.
