Every summer is the usual problem: there is a growing desire to take a nice holiday by the sea or in the mountains, or to leave for a trip to distant destinations, but the question also arises spontaneously “who will water the flowers and plants? At this time of year, in fact, with the temperature rising, constant watering is absolutely vital. What to do?
You can turn to relatives and neighbors willing to shoulder this commitment, perhaps with the risk of finding, on their return, the yellowed lawn and the plants withered leaves, due to an irrigation not in a workmanlike manner.
It is better to solve the problem in a definitive and safe way, realizing a simple irrigation system which will water in our place in a regular way, with the right quantity of water and at the best times: in the early morning or in the evening, without wasting due to evaporation and without water stagnations which can turn out to be as harmful as a scarce or infrequent irrigation.
Dissect plants for days and days
Claber, the Italian brand of reference in the world of domestic irrigation, has studied various solutions for watering potted plants during the holidays . The simplest is called Idris and is a drip sprinkler for indoor plants in pots or on the terrace or balcony, which works with a normal plastic bottle, from 0.5 to 2 liters, without the need for batteries or a connection to a tap.
Idris is permanently planted in the soil at the base of the plant, thanks to its tripod, and distributes the water drop by drop, directly near the roots. It is equipped with 4 different drippers that allow you to choose the most suitable water flow rate: 10 – 15 – 20- 30 cl per day and ensures regular watering for many days. The only warning is to make a small hole in the bottom of the bottle, to allow the water to flow down, and not expose the bottle to the sun.
