PlantAssure Sub-Irrigation System
$9.52 – $12.26
A PLANTZ exclusive. Our PlantAssure sub-irrigation system is designed to extend your plant’s watering interval, often times allowing plants to go several weeks to a month between waterings. The kit is sized to the growpot of your plant, and raises the growpot above the liner creating a reservoir from which the plant draws water as the soil dries down. Each kit includes 1) one PVC ring of approximately 6″ or 8″ in diameter that will raise the growpot approximately 1″ off the bottom of the liner, and 2) four wicks made of capillary matting material that absorb water from the reservoir into the soil profile.
When a PlantAssure kit is ordered with a new plant from us, the plant will be delivered to you with the wicks installed and you will incur no additional shipping costs. You will simply place the plant on top of the PVC ring in the liner and push the wicks down in to the bottom of the liner where it will come in contact with the water when you water the plant.
Please note that liners are NOT included with the system if it is purchased without a plant but any local garden center should have these. You should measure the diameter of the base of the plant and purchase one locally that is slightly larger.
You can order the PlantAssure kits separately and install them yourself on your existing plants or plants from other sources.
