How To Water Plants In Lechuza Planters

Here you will find a detailed explanation about how to water your plants potted in the following Lechuza self-watering planters: Rustico, Classico, Cubico, Rondo, Cararo, Delta, Windowsill, Quadro, Canto, Diamante, Cilindro & Cubeto.

We recommend waiting 3-4 months before using the self-watering feature. This time frame is required for the roots to grow so the plant can easily reach the water reservoir and begin drinking water.

WATERING FOR THE FIRST 3-4 MONTHS

Test the soil with your Soil Moisture Meter once every 7-10 days. Make sure the black switch is set on MOIST. 

Test the soil in a few spots.

When the soil moisture meter test result is in a specified zone for your plant type, or below, water through the soil. List of recommended soil moisture level for each plant type is provided with Soil Moisture Meter purchase.

When watering, pour water slowly, distributing evenly around your plant and between the stems.

 

WATERING AFTER 3-4 MONTHS

Now that 3-4 months have passed, you can start using the self-watering feature of your planter.

Continue testing the soil with the Soil Moisture Meter.

When the soil moisture meter test result is in a specified zone for your plant type, or below, pour water directly into the water reservoir until the red stick inside the water level indicator is up to the Maximum mark.

Now you wait for your plant to use all of the water from the reservoir.

How fast a plant will drink the water depends on the light, humidity, temperature and airflow in your space. When the water level indicator reaches the Minimum mark, the reservoir is empty.

DO NOT refill the reservoir right away, the soil needs time to dry between waterings.

Begin to test the soil with the soil moisture meter again, once every 2 weeks.

When the soil moisture meter test result is in a specified zone for your plant type, or below, refill the water reservoir up to Maximum mark again.

Continue this routine to help your plants grow and thrive.
