Houseplant Wick System
A unique solution to those plants that can't seem to get enough water, these houseplant wicks extend the time between waterings so you can actually go on a vacation once in a while!
3-part system: extra-deep saucer, wick, and riser. We recommend using several rocks as the 'riser' (this just holds the plant pot up out of the water, creating a puddle that the wicks draw from). If you don't want to use rocks, we've got sturdy plastic cross-risers for you. Just put the 'riser' in the saucer, insert the wicks into the soil (tutorial here: https://youtu.be/2X0TclYZIno), then fill the saucer with water up to the level of the bottom of the nursery pot. Voila! Instant sub-irrigation!
We recommend using:
4" pot: one 6" wick
6" pot: two 9" wicks
8" pot: three 12" wicks
10" pot: four 15" wicks
12" pot: five 18" wicks
Wicking is sold by the foot - just order however much you need and it will arrive in one long piece. Cut as needed.
Loving the wick system, so easy to use. Just prop your plastic pot up in a cache pot, thread the wick into the soil through a drainage hole, and fill the reservoir. Done and done. My calatheas are LOVING it!
