Irrigation Flexibility

Glowpears are designed with the flexibility to compliment your lifestyle. Accordingly, there are four options for watering your Glowpears: 1. Via rainwater if exposed to the elements. 2. Manually water the soil with a garden hose, drip system or watering can. 3. Manually fill the water reservoir via the fill point. 4. Clip on a hose and irrigate directly into the reservoir.
