Waterworks | CONE
Keep your plants happy with Waterworks // Just the cone
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 cone:
The main component of Waterworks is the partly porous terra-cotta cone.
In this new version we made it easier to hack: with a slightly wider neck, the cone can fit a variety of bottles, so you can re-use your loveliest bottles as a watering device for your houseplants.
And we're selling the cone seperately: not only so you can hack it with any bottle you like, but also to make it possible to change a cone when the season asks for it.
NB: The box - The new official Waterworks box is scheduled to be available from halfway March, from which point the product will alse be available again for wholesale.
HOW TO WORK IT:
1: Push the terra-cotta cone into the soil close to the roots of the plant.
2: Fill (any fitting) 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)
NB We usually advice the Medium cone (which we advice for 80% of the house plants). If you prefer to receive a large or small cone, make sure to tick the right box during the ordering process.
