6 x Zimmer Blumat Pot Plant Irrigation
The easy to install irrigation for holidays or all year round! With this irrigation system potted plants get the exact amount of water they need.
Zimmer Blumat supplies potted plants with water which the soil or plant extracts directly from the porous clay cone. The drier the soil, the higher the suction tension with which water is extracted.
The resulting vacuum causes the water to rise from the water reservoir to the Zimmer Blumat to be released to the soil. It is important to ensure that the water supply's level is no higher than the cap of the Zimmer Blumat, to allow the reservoir to function through the soil and plant suction power alone. If the water supply is to be increased, the reservoir can be positioned slightly higher. If the water supply is to be reduced, the reservoir can be placed slightly lower.
Easy Maintance: Only the reservoir has to be refilled regularly. However, the potted plant would be happy with an additional watering once or twice a month with a watering can, so that the soil in the pot can be soaked with water all over.
To water correctly:
-One Zimmer Blumat for pots with a diameter from 15 to 20 cm
- Two Zimmer Blumat for pots with a diameter from 20 to 30 cm
- Four Zimmer Blumat for pots with a diameter of 40 cm
Installing a Zimmer Blumat:
Pull the cap off the Blumat and fill the clay cone to the brim with water. Then close the cap again. Make sure that the suction tube is vented.
Now the porous clay tip of the Zimmer Blumat is pushed into the soil of the potted plant and the suction tube is hung in the reservoir of your choice. The plant now draws water from the reservoir via the Blumat clay cone.
