How do you have even moisture distribution on the row down of bottles?  It seems the bottom would be dryer than the top?

Just a small water pump with a diverter to adjust head height. The constant drip provided enough oxygen for the tank. It was mildly successful, but needed to be monitored regularly.

Nice :-)

Are you using an air pump to move the water?

God bless,
