The Blumat Tropf Automatic Watering System 3 Meter Set is a ready-to go self-watering kit that allows you to water:
- 12 x 25 cm diameter pots, OR
- 6 x 40 cm diameter pots, OR
- 4 x 50 cm diameter pots, OR
- 3 x narrow 1 meter flower boxes
( For pots with a depth of 30 cm or more, we recommend adding some Blumat Tropf Maxi “carrots”, as these will ensure deeper watering of the pots )
The Blumat Tropf system works by using gravity and the capillary interaction between the soil and the orange Blumat clay “carrot” cones. When the soil or substrate is dry, it will create a suction inside the water filled cone tubes – opening the diaphragm at the top of the carrot and allowing water to drip from the tubing. Once the soil around the clay cone becomes moist, this suction will cease and close the diaphragm again.
This allows for each individual pot to be watered automatically only when needed, and a single Tropf system can have up to 500* watering points ! The “carrot” does the thinking for you !
