🌿 Product Information
Going away for a few days and worried about keeping your plants watered? This Blumat product is for you, giving you slow drip irrigation to your plants keeping them topped off when you are away from home.
Just connect the hose to a container of water, push the stake into your plant's soil medium, and relax as the Blumat drip feeds your plants. The larger the water container, the longer your plants will be self-watered.
How it Works
With Blumat Classic, indoor plants get the amount of water they need, regardless of whether it’s sunny or shady. The water is drawn from a container of your choice through a thin tube and released directly through the clay cone into the soil.
As the soil dries, the tension in the soil sucks water out of the clay cone, this suction power in turn pulls water from the container. Once the soil is moist, the soil tension is reduced and water release stops.
With this method of irrigation, the plant and soil are in control of how much water they need. No more guesswork, just healthy plants! All you need to do is keep the water container topped up, so the plant and soil remain in optimum health.
The standard Blumat Classic releases 50-150ml of water every 24 hours, depending on how wet or dry the soil is.
The Blumat Classic XL with larger clay cone releases 75-200ml of water per 24 hours and is ideal for thirsty indoor plants or plants in larger pots.
How to Use
It doesn’t matter how many plants you have; installation is quick and easy. You simply fill Blumat Classic with water, let it soak for 15 mins, then insert it into the soil. Place the suction tube in a water container and the automatic watering system is ready to use.
Ideal for Holiday Time
The volume of water released from the Blumat Classic can be adjusted by simply lowering or raising the water container.
Please note: Blumat classics can only draw water from a water level no greater than 30cm below the green cap.
For large plant pots you can use several Blumat Classics, or Blumat Classic XL units.
