Blumats! Automatic watering!

Vertical Blumat grow

Blumat adjustment procedure: (for soil)In a bucket ,fill and soak units under water for at LEAST an hour. Then screw on cap( nice and tight!) under water making sure not to trap any air.
Leave dripper line at ~8cm. long.
Give the pot a good watering.
Insert B/M snugly into nicely compacted soil(not too loose) .
Open till water comes out, carefully close until just a drop barely forms.
Tighten 1.75 - 2 Arrows
Adjust as necessary for a few days, then leave it alone!

It uses suction, so just a reservoir. The smaller ones are great for houseplants, but you might need a couple for a pot 8" or above.

Similar to Plant Sitters

I use plant sitters, which are very similar in shape and function. They siphon from a reservoir of any size. Use them for my banzai mums so I can ignore them for a week or two at a time. Also for larger plants when I must travel. They work fine. You can get them on Amazon.

Exclamation

These use a dripper hose, therefore they can service a high demand situation.
Res. needs to be about 6" or so above drippers.(I think they say 3-4)
These DO NOT use suction to supply the actual water, ONLY to activate the pinch valve.
Gravity supplies the water.
The other kind, the water seeps through the carrot.
With these, the carrot is just a sensor device.
I am blow away more people don't know about/ use these.

I use Aqua Bulbs, which are great. $10 a pop, but well worth it for a small garden when the gardener needs to leave for a few days to a week.
