Product Bites: Water Saucers easy self watering
What are Water Saucers:
Water Saucers are a simple self-watering system for potted plants. The Saucer sits under any plant pot. The plant roots draw up the water they need via the super absorbent capillary wick.
What crop are they for:
They work for any plant in a pot. Anything from geraniums to runner beans can benefit. They are perfect for pairing with Vigoroot pots and great for watering when away for a few days
Where can I use them:
Before planting up a pot, simply thread the capillary wick half way up the pot (if the pot has no drainage holes you will need to cut or drill a small hole in the base of your pot). If you already have a plant in a pot you can retro fit the wick - see the YouTube video for how to do this.
What's so special about it?
The plant can get water as and when it needs it. The wick sits in the water-filled saucer enabling the plant to independently draw up water as required. You can also add liquid feed to the water supply and the plant can self-feed too! Over and under-watering will no longer be a problem as plants will be provided with a consistent water supply. The large capacity of the water saucers will mean that plants can be left to look after themselves for extended periods too. Water saucers are perfect for pairing with Haxnicks Vigoroot™ pots and mean that much less room is needed to grow veg for example crops such as runner beans can be grown in pots as small as 5 litres.
