Each plant needs to be watered according to its species, season, location, temperature, humidity and light it receives.
The different requirements of each plant for the proper development make the correct irrigation difficult, and are the cause of many plants to deteriorate or even die. In most cases excess irrigation is the main cause.
With hydrum the water intake is adjustable to the variable demand and to the changing situations, encouraging proper growth and enhancing its beauty.
Most houseplants are tropical in origin and therefore require a moderate and constant humidity.
It is important to know that plants absorb 70% of the water through the upper half of the root zone (40% on the first level, 30% on the second, 20% on the third and finally 10% on the bottom level)
hydrum is the only self-watering system on the market based on these fundamental and natural principles with 100% of the water supplied directly to the roots
The hydrum automatic watering system is based on a continuous capillary integration with the surrounding soil, the whole being subjected to the hydraulic principles involving the state and movement of water in the soil. The hydrum water supply system forms an integral part with all of the soil surrounding it.
In dry soil, the water extracted from the hydrum system is subject to the suction and hydraulic force originated by the dry soil, and is therefore distributed subject to the action of gravity and capillary forces
The hydrum automatic adjustment allows water to flow through a drainage system which adjusts to the demand of the soil and the plants without causing loss of water below the root zone (roots).
