WHO’S GROWING SOME DANK:
Tectonic Seeds I run a recreational farm in Oregon and use entirely Sub Irrigation. I find it to be the right sustainable choice here as water is limited, and these systems use about 40% less water uncovered, or up to 70% less with a plastic mulch cover than traditional containers. I use large 3×4 and 4×4 and up, homemade Sub Irrigated planters that i have designed myself. In addition i have about 24 Earthbox SIPS (Sub-Irrigated Planters), and 24 City Picker SIPS all for comparison. All of which simply have an overflow port that works like a charm. I would say the Elbow maybe is not needed as it raises the res level too much in my experience which could hinder growth. Its also important for the reservoir level to drop so that oxygen enters the overflow tube and fills the area below the soil with oxygen. I would advise against having a lot of water in the reservoir unless the roots exchange the water by drinking it up daily. The water still can become stagnant if it sits too long without being taken up. When the balance is right the growth is as fast as hydroponics. In my personal experience I’ve had 4 feet of growth in a month outdoors, and similar results indoors in 35 days. Also to add to the Set it and Forget it part that Scotty likes, you definitely can have the reservoir filled for a few days which is nice if you have to leave and don’t have anyone to water for you, but any longer than just a few days will cause problems including depletion of oxygen levels in the media. Sorry for the length of the comment here, but I hope the information helps anybody out there trying SIP planters themselves.
