As the hygrolon wick water I only need it to be running for 3-5 min to completly wet all the slabs. And the drying is even as the material wick water from around. I think I have it on 5 min every second hour daytime and a few times during night when I close the cabinet. The high humidity during night prevent the hygrolon from drying up.

It is hygrolon in the pots and this is how I did it:
Step 1. glue hygrolon wicks on the bottom outside ant thread them through the hole.
Step 2 fill the bottom with pieces of hygrolon and some expanded clay pellets.
Step 3. Roll a strip of hygrolon around the roots. Balance the lenght so the diameter match the clay pot.
Step 4, plant the rolled hygrolon in the pot and form the layer to a nice cone.
Step 5. Not shown, pot the pot on a wet surface and the hygrolon will wick up water creating a nice moist compartment for the roots.
On the last picture you can see the pot standing on the wick.
