Default How to make a drip system

Could you explain how to make a drip system?
I linked a picture of the system I've seen online. I do not understand the operation, because he has not used any bombs.
I want to put this system, apart from the rain system, to always maintain the wet bottom, and quickly grow ferns and mosses.

you need a bucket to hold the water. You put a fountain pump in to pump the water up to the drip holes You need a way for the water to drain back into the bucket.




Some ideas for you.

You don't have to have a drilled tank. Here is my thread on how I made my drip wall. There is honestly not much info out there for drip walls so get creative. Hope the link helps.

You can use something like this to control the water flow. Use tubing coming off the pump and add a valve like this to the tubing:

you can adjust the flow of the pump to a drip. Just make sure you have a release pipe so back pressure doesn't kill the pumps life. i'll have mine come on a few times a day. If I wanted a constant drip id just slow the flow. pretty simple imo.
