Need some help, I’m away from my plants too much to keep on top of a real nice watering schedule and they suffer a little from it.

Also just want to make my life easier and get some sort of drip system going for the flower tent so all I have to worry about is filling the res with water. 

What equipment do I need? Anyone who’s set up something like this able to give me some pointers? Be much appreciated!

The flower tent is 4x2 and will contain 3-5 plants in 20L fabric pots

@greentomato we are talking soil, right?   I love my Blumat original carrots.  They do a good job at keeping baseline. Last time I left them I was gone for 10 days and no problems!

@im_sparky yeah im in a premixed organic soil. So just going with plain water. How many carrots do I need? And are they just the ones that have a tube that dangles in a tub of water and kind of wicks it? 
Looking to have some set up where the only time I need to hand water is when I top dress

@greentomato yes, those are the ones. There are available from Global Village, and I think they have an presence on Amazon, too. You need one per pot of the original carrots for a simple setup. I use the XL carrot in each of my 5-gallon/20-liter pots. Look around their website to make sure that is what makes sense for you. You can get a much more complicated system/components from them, but the originals work for me. They are simple and effective.

Thanks @greentomato and @im_sparky for bringing this up, I’ve heard of bluemat. I haven’t paid much attention, but now I’m playing in dirt and have an approaching vaca, I just ordered 4 classics and 4 xls. Hope they get here in time (rather not have my house sitter burdened).

For the classic style, you can use anything for a reservoir (milk jug, bucket, etc.). To change the rate of dispersion, you just raise the height of the reservoir to increase flow. I have a jug on top of a bucket so that the water level in the reservoir is an inch or two higher than the soil where the carrots are.
