Waterworks | RESERVOIR
Keep your plants happy with Waterworks // Just the reservoir
Houseplants are not only wonderful to look at, they’re also air purifying superstars that are great for your health and can help reduce over-all stress-levels
Waterworks is a natural watering system that makes caring for your houseplants incredibly easy.
The system works thanks to the porous terra-cotta that slowly gives off its moisture to the surrounding earth.
Because there's a vacuum in the top of the reservoir, the waterflow is slow and steady and creates a natural balance with the soil and plant: a plant extracting moisture from the soil faster, will slightly speed up the waterflow.
You can control this a little bit: in about 80% of all cases we use the medium cone, with which a reservoir of ca 500ml will drain in aout 10-14 days. However if you have a plant that needs more water, use the 'Large' cone: with a larger porous surface and a faster waterflow (6-8 days). Or use the 'Small' cones with a small porous surface that can last up to 4 weeks with a 500ml reservoir.
Just the reservoir:
Went for only the cone at first, but are ready for an upgrade from beer-bottle to slightly more stylish reservoir? It is now possible to order the glass reservoir separately.
Also a great solution for when you accidentally dropped and broke the glass bulb (we now it happens).
HOW TO WORK IT:
1: Push the terra-cotta cone into the soil close to the roots of the plant.
2: Fill the glass reservoir with clean water.
3: Place the filled reservoir in the terra-cotta cone. (don't worry about spilling a little water while placing the reservoir)
