This works pretty well in my opinion.

One of the challenges I've encountered is getting the soil less potting mix evenly moistened. A drip emitter at the base of the plant just seems to wet the soil within a small diameter as the water just flows straight down to the bottom of the container.
I don't have good data on how much horizontal distribution there is.
So, if possible, I use spray emitters that cover a wider area, and run them for less time.

Intelligence is knowing a tomato is a fruit.
Wisdom is knowing not to put one in a fruit salad.
