Take a Worry-Free Vacation!
When planning a vacation, one of the concerns of a plant enthusiast is finding someone reliable and trustworthy to water the plants and flowers while you are away. With the effective and convenient self-watering pottery spikes, you can take your trip worry-free! These handy automatic plant waterers use the unique absorbing properties of ceramic. Consequently, it slowly seeps water into your plant’s soil, providing your greens with just the right amount of water to thrive, never too much and never too little. This all-natural gardening irrigation system passively waters your plants for approximately two weeks, depending on the size of the bottle.
Set Up Your Watering System in Minutes!
Begin by moistening the soil that your ceramic stake will be placed in. Using your fingers, gently make a hole into the soil where the point will enter. This will help avoid breaking the tip off the pottery sheath by pressing too hard. Fill a long neck bottle with water and place the bottle upside down into the spike, matching the shape of the bottle. Place the watering device into the indent and gently press into the soil. It’s as simple as that!
Please note: There is no hole in the plant watering stake as that is not necessary. Once saturated with water, the terracotta material naturally seeps water into the soil.
Tips and Tricks to Using the Plant Stakes
Use a clear bottle so you can easily see if the water needs to be refilled.
Insert the watering stake at an angle to avoid tipping in smaller pots.
Soak the ceramic spike before use to quicken the seepage process.
If using a glass bottle, press the stake into the soil and then add the bottle. Pressing on a glass bottle in the ceramic sheath can cause breakage.
