    Winter - Timer question for Outside Tower

    cody94549

      I have my Tower outside - SF Bay Area.  We don't get snow here, but a few nights it can get frosty even though the days right now are low 60's.  (I wheel my Tower under the porch eves on those nights).

       

      So my actual question is about the watering/timer schedule.  After like 4 weeks, I don't seem to be losing much water due to evaporation. I have my timers set to 15 on / 30 off during the day, then 15 on every 2 hours at night.  The rock wool seems to be staying wet & the plants (herbs & lettuces) seem to be growing well.

       

      Is that timer setting appropriate for Winter?  Or will I run into problems by not pushing water thru more frequently?

      Thanks in advance.
