1. What is a Hydroplanter?

A Hydroplantes is a planter with a self-watering system that provides the necessary amount for the plants and produces the natural habitat of those, helping them to live better and longer.

2. How does it Works?

1. A drainage bag comes included with each Hydroplanter; its contents are sufficient to complete the following steps. Spread the drainage material uniformly on top of the conductors until they are covered by a layer approximately 2 centimeters.

2. Cover the drainage layer with soil, leaving a hole for each plant that you wish to plant in your Hydroplanter.

3. Before planting each plant in its corresponding hole we recommend that you loosen the roots (without breaking them), which will encourage the plants to take root in their new soil. If your intend to plant more than a plant, we suggest that you start with the biggest

4. After planting the FIRST time, it is important to water the soil, slowly and at intervals until soil and drainage layer is moist and the water tank is full. The level shown on the indicator rod will rise beyond this point as it will be detrimental both for your plants and for the correct functioning of your Hydroplanter.

4. How would I know if I have to fill the Hydroplanter?

ONLY REFILL THE WATER 4 TIMES A YEAR. If you wish, you can take the opportunity to add liquid fertilizer directly to the water tank before you refill it. If after a few days the water level has go down or the indicator rod is at its minimu level, this does NOT mean that you should either partly or completely refill the water tank again. The water has been absorbed by the system and the soil. You must ONLY REFILL THE WATER TANK 4 TIMES A YEAR. If you have planted plants with shallow roots, it is good idea to lightly water the surface of the soil, preferably with a watering can. As a reminder, we recommend filling the tank at the start of every season.

It does not have to change the drainage, since it’s a motionless material that does not degenerate. Usually the changing comes because of a plant renovation because of its remove and place process, the original drainage can be mixed with the substratum. In that case, we recommend changing the drainage for its perfect system operation.

1. Waterlevel indicator rod

2. Body guide buoy with ventilation holes

3. Wicks for water transfer by means of capillary action

4. Water tank aeration opening and water filling entrance of the water tank

5. Interior space for the soil, the drainage layer and the plant

7. Wheels housing

Adel and Lina provide innovation and design in addition to recreate the natural habitat of this amazing plant.

12. How Orchid pots Adel and Lina work?

These two collections are formed by two vessels. Fill half of the vessel with water and put the vessel with the Orchid above the vessel with water and leave it for 5 minutes, after 5 minutes, pour the water of the vessel and put it back to the vessel with the Orchid.
