Conventional watering systems release water at intervals which are automatically scheduled via computer. What they do not take into consideration is the amount of sunshine, the current moisture of the soil or the varying water requirements of individual plants.
Tropf-Blumat is different: It doesn't have to be plugged in to the power supply, nor does it require a computer. Each ceramic cone responds to the moisture content of the surrounding soil, only releasing the amount of water required by the particular plant at any given moment.
So Tropf-Blumat is a sensor and drip feed system, both at the same time.
The slow and measured release of water enables plants to receive water which has been allowed to stand for a while at a temperature which is in keeping with the enviroment. This ensures both profuse flowering as well as healthy plant growth.
