SWICK Watering Systems: Letting The Plant Water Itself


Well-Known Member
Thanx Greenjean.

You’ll see there’s not much of my own innovation here, rather I’ve cherry picked small bits that fit my needs from several contributors of this thread.

There was a lot of discussion concerning a variety of possibilities for basins. The one that caught my attention was a couple of posts suggesting construction of a custom sized unit using 2X? lumber.

This was perfect for maximizing the floor space afforded by my grow box. I used to be an avid woodworker. While the passion has dimmed somewhat, the shop is still fully intact and I have a mountain of lumber. Grabbed some random 3/4” plywood and whipped up nifty box to fit my space well. The interior measures 20”X40”X6” deep.

I used some 40 mil vinyl shower pan material to line it with. Probably a bit of an overkill but I didn’t want to worry about possible leaks.

To be continued........
