how do greenhouses water their cacti/succulents?
does anybody know what is the set-up?
it can't be individual drip,right? too may small pots!
can't be misting - humidity too high.
then what? could it be wicking mats? individual drip for very large plants?
i recently bought sev plants all planted in coir peat in plastic pots with lots of holes in the bottom - exactly like they use for water-wicks. hawortia, gollum jade, hybrid aloe. and they all had very nice roots too when i repotted - that is after sev months of watering by hand - and i checked to water when coir peat got dry - it took some time! but roots were good.
i found some obscure reference to wicking succulents in the greenhouse - but cannot find anything more detailed.
has anybody seen/used wicking set-up?
