Drip irrigation for hanging baskets

Have a customer that wants me to add misting for 5 hanging baskets on a porch at about 9ft. in height. Not very well versed in drip irrigation and looking for advice on how to set this up. Current main line is right next to the porch so I can tap into it quite easily. Thanks

It's just like any other drip system. I ran mine underground and came up along a fence. I ran the 1/2" PE along the top stringer to the end of the fence and put in 1/4" tubing to each basket. I even have a couple of misters installed upside down that do a general area to help with humidity on those really hot days here.

And they don't need to run very long, check and see how long it takes before water's running out of the basket. Sorry if I'm stating the obvious, I've just seen people drowning their baskets, running them for like 20 minutes a day when 2-5 will probably do, depending on what you're using.
