Is there any way to apply this system to an upside down or hanging planter? I'm thinking of growing tomatoes from some type of homemade upside down planter on my balcony and would like to incorporate sub-irrigation. Thoughts? Suggestions?

Have you tried this?

I don't have time or space to test this now but will in the future.


How does one water a planter with an aquapad in it? I just some of the material and put it under some soil.


I'm an urban container gardener and would love to hear more about this type of self-watering set-up.

Do you really water the whole pot up to .5" from the top of the pot? So basically almost the entire pot is full of water?
