What is the best kept secret in container gardening? The experts know how to promote faster, more vigorous growth, and significantly reduce the chance of pests and diseases... ssssh... it all comes down to healthy soil.
The Glowpear Urban Garden comes with a convenient water level indicator that rises and falls in tandem with the water reservoir. When the water reservoir is full the water level indicator will sit upright revealing the green walls of the indicator. Conversely, when you see the indicator lowering to become flush with the top surface, the water reservoir is low so it’s time to add water.
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. Whichever option you choose, Glowpear’s innovative self-watering technology ensures excess water is collected and released over time so your plants receive constant attention and nourishment.
