How the self
watering system works
The pots contain durable
protruding out of the drainage holes. These wicks hang into a
water. They absorb water and draw it up into the pot.
on the size of the pot, the water level can be about an inch
above the base of the pot. However, if it drops about 3 inches (75mm)
below the base of the pot, the wicks should still enable sufficient
moisture to be provided to the soil. The water in the tray therefore
does not have to be replaced often, and this saves a lot of time and
maintainance which would otherwise be required without this system.
The pots and stands are then placed in the flower bucket as shown below.
A stand is not needed if two or more pots can jam into the flower bucket. A number of combinations are possible and three of them are shown below.
