Vacation Plant Watering Set Up for a Month

We love hearing from our customers, and are including here one customer’s comments and pictures, as he wanted to share it with us and everyone who is looking for a watering solution that will do its job for a month-long vacation.  We suggested that he set it up with our Group Drink concept, and you will see it in the great shots he took!  Here are his comments on the HydroSpike® HS-300 product:

 

 Honestly, HydroSpike worked much better than expected.  I can travel or go on vacation without worrying about my plants.  The system evenly distributes the water, which I can tell by the moisture of the soil.  In addition to being convenient and self implementing, my plants have grown healthier than before!

Thank you for introducing me to this miraculous product!

Hydrospike® Portable Dripline System Starter Kit – Outdoor

Our new Hydrospike® Portable Dripline System Starter Kit is great for outdoor gardens and container gardens.  The entire kit is easy to adjust and the tubing can be snipped to fit your specific length wherever your plants are.  Instructions are included in the kit.

We have included a few pictures here of how ours are set up.

Hydrospike® Portable Dripline System

Start out by finding yourself a water container and use the long tubing and run it to each plant or group of plants.  Then take the HydroSpike dripper device and place by the plant or in the pot.  Using the T-connectors attach, snip off enough tubing to connect plan to main water line.

Notice that the bucket of water is higher than where the plants are located.  This creates more water pressure and constant flow/drip of water.

You can adjust each individual dripper device to the level of water drip needed.  Here is a picture of the dripper up close.

Increase Your Water Supply!

Using HydroSpike is convenient, but when you want to increase your supply of water, “daisy chain” a series of water containers with some tubing and use the siphon principle to increase the supply of water to your plants.  One of our customers also suggests to use standard tubing, for example 1/4 inch diameter when connecting the water containers.  Thanks for great feedback HydroSpike customers!  You guys are the best!

HydroSpike’s First Video!!!!

Check out our first video production!  Automatic Vacation Plant Watering with HydroSpike TM. Happy Plants & Happy Owners, a HydroSpike specialty 🙂  We also like to laugh, so hope you get a little chuckle out of our video. Hope to have more videos to share in the future.  Keep up the vacationing, we got your plants covered!

Cascading Leaves

We love this plant that has cascading waxy leaves, so shiny!  HydroSpike is great when we go on vacation or don’t have time to water the plants.  The plant is an indoor plant, and it sits on an outdoor patio set…that we moved indoors!  The wood patio set was too nice of a set to leave outside to rot.  Why not use it as indoor furniture?!

 

 

Ficus Benjamina + HydroSpike

Ficus benjamina, commonly known as the Weeping Fig, Benjamin’s Fig, or the Ficus Tree and often sold in stores as just a “Ficus”, is a species of fig tree, native to south and southeast Asia and Australia.  We love our ficus, and have a massive tree that is 30+ years in our living room.  This is our smaller plant, and is getting its daily drink from HydroSpike.  The trees can grow large, so when on vacation, put in a few HydroSpikes, especially in warm weather.  The tree will need the hydration if gone for a couple of weeks.

HydroSpike’s Shooting Star

This plant, the lovely Shooting Star, in all its white splendor and glory cheers us up here at HydroSpike.  This plant cannot be under harsh sunlight, and definitely needs watering in warmer weather.  If you are busy, on vacation (or holiday), be sure to set up a HydroSpike system so you will come back to its beautiful blooms.  It starts to bloom less towards the end of summer.  For all you married men, the shooting star plant is a perfect gift to give to your wife…she is your shooting star.

Group Drink Setup

HydroSpikes can be set up with multiple plants to one reservoir. Here is a picture of one setup we have. Plants doing pretty well for weeks at a time when on vacation. You also can use an inverted flat garbage lid to place all your plants in it.
