When designing, evaluating, or troubleshooting a drip irrigation system, rule No. 1 is to start at the plant.

A well-designed drip irrigation design also takes into account:

  • A cultivator’s growing style/preferences
  • Container size
  • Plant size
  • Number of plants
  • Growing media

Growers intuitively understand that these factors and others within their environment can affect one another. It’s why most growers consistently, even obsessively, monitor every bit of information available to them— temperature, nutrient pH and EC, humidity, light levels, photoperiod, moisture content, etc. Growers know all these factors play into how plants not only grow, but thrive.

Great design takes this understanding a step further, by analyzing the specific effects conditions in your grow have on your results, rather than relying on generalities for all drip irrigation systems to make planning decisions.
