Houseplants are not only wonderful to look at: they’re air purifying superstars that are great for your health and can help reduce over-all stress-levels
WATERWORKS is a hydration system that makes caring for your houseplants incredibly easy. A set consists of a partly glazed terra-cotta cone and a glass bulb with cork stopper.
Because of the porous nature of the terra-cotta, water will slowly seep through the walls of the cone into the soil.For plants that need less water, a larger part of the cone is glazed, decreasing the porous surface of the terra-cottaand slowing down the water-flow.
The three-step manual:1. close the top hole in the glass reservoir with the cork (make sure it's airtight).2. push the ceramic cone in the soil close to the roots of your potted plant.3. fill the reservoir with water and place it in the cone – refill when empty.
The production of Waterworks was financed with crowdfunding.Waterworks is launched in the summer of 2014 and has been nominated for a German Design Award.
