Does anyone have a drip system set up around their bonsai pots and how effective are they?

Hi Misty Fields ,i dont have a drip system as i move the bonsai around on a constant basis .A hand held hose is my weapon of choice . With several hundred potted trees , hundreds of trainers and thousands of seedlings to cover its not viable . An hour a day on the hose at full throttle keeps them moist . Most of my Bonsai sit in sand trays or wet beds.Cheers Alpine

Thanks for that Alpine, I can see why you use the hose you must have a huge collection, I only have about 40-50 pots mostly in a shelved area, so thought I may try.
