Plantpal Self-watering Plant System – Review & Giveaway

Plantpal automatic watering systems are really handy throughout the year but particularly in warmer weather and especially for times when you go away.  The bonus with these is that you know that your plants will be watered as and when is needed during your absence to ensure they stay alive and in optimum condition.  The range of products available are suitable all year round and the perfect gift for all plant lovers.

Plantpal 3 Watering Globes come in three bright translucent colours that really brighten up your plant pots and allow you to see how much water is left in them at the same time. I think they are fantastic from what I have seen so far and they are so easy to use. You simply unscrew the cone, fill the ball with water, screw the base on again and then poke into the soil of the plant you want watered.

I’m currently trying the globes out in three of my different house plants and it’s really interesting to see how much water each of them need.  I also love seeing the bright coloured balls in the plant pots, adding both a decorative and functional purpose. Suitable for use in 15-23cm pots and with the ability to water plants for up to 2 weeks I think these are a fantastic idea that saves both time in your normal daily routine and a handy helper when you are away from home.

Another great product in the range is the Plantpal Watering System which is a cleverly designed water tank to fit inside a curved plant pot and is made in such a way that the water is regulated as it comes out of the container with a capillary wick that sits on the bottom of the pot.  I have the perfect pot for this sitting on my decking with a Fuschia plant in that I’m trying to grow so really want to make sure it doesn’t dry out.  We have had to lift the plant out to place the tank inside the pot then gently put the plant back in – ideally do this when you are first placing the plant in a pot or repotting it.  Just leave the water level indicator and filler hole visible and you know you only have to top it up every couple of weeks as required.

If you love the look of these then I have a fantastic giveaway to win a selection of Plantpal self-watering planters to help keep your plants irrigated for up to 2 weeks.
