Q: Soil Block Irrigation

May 18, 2009 -

I have built a bottomless 4’x8’ wooden box to contain my soil block transplants. I intend to water them automatically on a timer. I am considering placing a lenght of 1/2” poly tubing on wire hoops down the length of the box. I would like to directly insert fogger-mister(IRE200) in the tubing. My question is how many misters and at what spacing do I have to install them to evenly water the entire area of the box?

And, is it even possible to insert the mister directly into the poly tubing?

“The spray on the fogger mister depends on your pressure I believe it goes out about 2ft with standard pressure.  I’d say to put a mister every 18””  you might even consider installing two lines of 1/2”” poly instead of one.

Hope that helps!”
