Drip irrigation automated watering for potted lemon/lime/avocado

I have heard that drip irrigation can work well, has anyone had success with these drip irrigation systems for potted citrus (lemon/lime/avocado)? Any suggestions on brands or systems, etc? Thanks.

RE: Drip irrigation automated watering for potted lemon/lime/avoc

I grow my potted citrus (19 varieties) with open hydroponics and yes, drip or micro-emitter irrigation can be very effective. That said, you've got to be laser focused on your trees because automated irrigation is also a very good method to kill your citrus deader than a hammer.

You've got to re-evaluate everything...container, potting media, root-stock, nutrition...

I'll be more than happy to share my experiences (successes and failures) with you if you're serious about the exercise...
