BACKGROUND Have a Drip System watering extensive variety of plants. Currently system is setup for running @ dawn. All plants are on the same system. Each container has it own drip feed. Watering volume to each container is managed by: 1) Drip emitter size - Gallon per Hour, GpH sizes from 0.5 on up & 2) Drip system's watering run time - Controlled on time of day, frequency & duration

Re: Any plant's specific optimal watering requirement

QUESTIONS A) What is best online resource for identifying it? B) Would it be different if it is in a Container instead of the ground? If so, does resource identified in Question A provide info about any adjustments needed for plants in a container? Appreciate your time & assistance on this. Look forward to receiving your reply. Thanks!

I'm relatively certain that container verses in ground would be different, distance of feed line would be pertinent, and type of soil and Hight of container (level of line) as well as how much what the individual plants require in their environment. Sounds like an engineering dilemma to me, and I don't know of any sites that would solve it.
