-Straightforward usability, original materials
-Easily add to your plants in the pots you love
-Go on holiday with peace of mind
About the cones
A plants' demand for water varies depending on the size and type of plant as well as the current season.
Make sure to choose the appropriate cone for your plant:
- Small: more glaze, smaller porous surface / for plants that don't need a lot of water.
- Medium / for most plants
- Large: less glaze, larger porous surface / for thirsty (or) larger plants.
The Waterworks cones are available separate from the full set (loose retail price €13,-), making it possible to interchange them per season.
Since the diameter of the cone is a fit for most bottles, this also opens up the opportunity to repurpose your special beer bottle collection into something useful and green.
1. Submerge the terra-cotta cone in water long enough to saturate the material
2. Carefully push the cone into the soil near the roots of your plant
3. Fill a reservoir with water and place in the terra-cotta cone - Refill when empty :-)
