This unique watering system works with ordinary potting compost. It does most of the work for you – taking care of your plants is easy! Enjoying time away or just don't have time to water - LECHUZA will do it for you. All you need to do is fill the reservoir regularly. The plants will then have sufficient water and nutrients for optimum growth. The nutrients are slowly released through the granulate drainage material. As long as the reservoir is filled, your plants can basically just take care of themselves. The integrated water gauge will indicate when the reservoir needs filling up again.
- Place the LECHUZA soil watering system (base divider, filling tube and water gauge) in the pot and layer the LECHUZA-PON granulate drainage material on top of the divider at about half an inch thick.
- Add potting compost and plant the plants of your choice at the correct depth, and then fill up. Press firmly down.
- For the first three following months, water the plant(s) on the soil. When you water also fill up the reservoir too. After that the plants' roots will have developed enough that they can reach the reservoir. All you then need to do is fill the reservoir. Only refill when the gauge points to minus.
