Watering system for house plants: automatic, versatile, no power needed.
Below, you will find the explanation of the Vergrowth automatic house plant watering system, its operating principles, use and advantages.
Vergrowth Products offers novel items to enhance the growth of your plants, adding beauty to your environment and increasing its enjoyment for yourself and your guests. The Plant Hydration Kit is the initial product and is designed to be used with a hermetic (airtight except for the outlet) reservoir. The most common type of reservoir is the watering globe. A different type (a re-purposed juice bottle) has been placed in the plant to the right. A close up is shown on the Home page. Used as shown with a reservoir, the hydrator kit provides these advantages:
It provides greater stability of the reservoir verses insertion of a watering globe or other reservoir directly into the plant growth medium (the reservoir is much less likely to sag to one side using the hydrator for support).
Its use avoids clogging that can occur with insertion of globes directly into the plant growth medium.
Using it avoids overly rapid emptying (and subsequent overflow of the saucer) that can occur when a reservoir is inserted directly into a plant growth medium that is especially porous.

It allows the use of reservoirs of different sizes and designs - providing for long term unattended watering or adding aesthetic appeal.
Reservoirs other than watering globes can also be used, as long as the outlet tip of the reservoir will fit into the hydrator. A remote reservoir can also be used, with its outlet being tubing having a tip that fits into the hydrator.
It permits use of different types of reservoirs (such as bottles, decorative glass, miniatures, etc. - when fitted with an appropriate tip).
Water can be distributed more uniformly across the pot or concentrated more around some plants than others.
It leaves the top of the pot relatively unencumbered since the reservoir normally sits above the pot rim - allowing for more plants, decorative materials or structures on the top surface.
The water transport is entirely passive once the reservoir is inserted.
It has an aesthetically pleasing appearance - an inconspicuous hydrator for use with a variety of possible reservoirs.
It can be added to a pot even if there are already larger, established plants growing in it.
Additional products coming soon include adapters that allow various bottles to be used to create larger reservoirs and larger hydrators to accommodate larger mouth reservoirs (think olive oil, wine or other bottles).
The watering rate can be adjusted to meet the plant's needs by adding or removing wicks.
It keeps the plant growth medium from soiling the inside of the globe (and thus reduces unsightly mold or algae growth inside the globe). The materials used should last indefinitely (ABS plastic hydrator, acrylic or polyester wicks and stainless steel retainers).

Each Regular Hydrator Kit contains two hydrators, two retainers and six double ended wicks, along with an instruction sheet. In order to be less conspicuous in use, the hydrators are black and the wicks are dark colored. Along with two reservoirs (watering globes or other types) provided by the user, each Kit provides the advantages of this system for two pots.
