Container Plants Buried Diffuser
For the irrigation of Plants in containers, pots or boxes, the diffusers include small water reservoirs to be filled during the irrigation. The capacities of the small reservoirs are few litters depending on the volumes of soil (to be completely “wetted”) contained in the containers, boxes or pots.
The moisture of the container soil, after the irrigation using the diffusers, is sufficient for several weeks. This duration is at least 3 times longer than the existing irrigation methods (capillarity, surface, dripping...).
The diffusers for potted plants are sold in pairs. Their putting-in in pots and containers is realized after the filling by the soil (or other substrates) until 10 cm below the edge of the pot or container. We need a bigger pot or container than the diffusers (> 30 cm).
The diffusers are placed on the ground where we will put the plant. We mark the location of the plants, then (after removing the diffusers), we dig holes in these locations and we put the plants. We tamp well the soil around the plants and we put the couple of diffusers. Finally we bury the diffusers until their level cap.
