We're in the middle of the houseplant season. And whether you've just bought your plants or they've been around for a while, they all need care and attention. Unfortunately, not everyone has green thumbs or there may be no one to look after the plants during a weekend retrait. We have a number of user-friendly solutions for this in our range. Watering aids!
Because the amount of water needed differs per plant, location, season, temperature and situation, it is very convenient if the plant itself determines how much water it needs. Such a self-watering system automatically dispenses water in dosed amounts. This season you will also find a new watering aid added to our catalogue.
Watering system made of glass
Just like the bird water dripper (196ml), you will now also find a watering system in the shape of a globe(175ml). Both are made of glass and have a refined appearance. The glass globe with transparent and frosted glass and a 20 cm spike gives plants just the right amount of water. Incidentally, each globe is well packed in a colourful gift box.
It only takes a few steps:
1. Hold the opening of the stem of the watering globe under the tap and fill until the globe is full. (175ml)
2. Make a hole in the potting soil at an angle between the plant and the edge of the pot.
3. Then place the watering ball.
Terracotta Irrigation System for Indoors
Terracotta is porous and allows water to pass through it slowly. The material is therefore ideal for use as an irrigation system. The neck of a one- or one-and-a-half-litre bottle (max 3,5cm) easily fits into this irrigation spout.This makes the spout ideal for automatic watering of larger plants or plants that need water for a longer period. So do you have a champagne bottle, wine bottle or beer bottle left over from the holidays? Don't throw them away, but use it to quench the thirst of your plants!
It only takes a few steps:
1. Fill the bottle with water
2. Put the spout on
3. Place the spout with the bottle upside down in the ground next to the plant. (Be careful not to damage the roots of the plant in the process, otherwise carefully dig out a piece of the ground)
The terracotta spout can also be used outside in the summer in a large flower pot, square metre vegetable garden or planter, for example. No bottle at your disposal? Then also check out the outdoor version of a terracotta irrigation system; the olla!
Purchased the spouts? Then you will receive 36 spouts in a nice designed table display like the one below.
Are you also a fan of the old-fashioned way and keeping control of your green jungle yourself? The stylish watering cans are ideal for indoor use. And with our new soil moisture meter (for which you don't need a battery!) you can keep a close eye on when your plants need watering and thus prevent over or under watering.
