Theory that Doesn't Deliver in Practice
on 8 August 2014
I recently bought 3 of these valves to control watering of the tomato plants in my greenhouse.
Valves were promptly delivered and very simple to set up. All good so far.
The valves function as described taking the plants through a wet and dry cycle. Unfortunately the dry part can last for 3 days and with large vigorously growing plants this is way too long and severe wilt and blossom drop occurs. I find I am spending more time checking whether valves are working than I would manually watering
A good idea but unfortunately it just doesn't work in the situations where it is really needed
