CONGRATULATIONS ON PURCHASING YOUR CUP O FLORA®
A self-watering pot that is mess and hassle-free solution that keeps plants alive for longer.
Before you start, we suggest checking cupoflora.com for the most suitable plant. Choose a peat-based potting mix that contains composted bark with sand or perlite. Ideally, your soil should be light and bouncy and have little to no odour. If none is included in the mix, add ½ teaspoon of slow release fertiliser to ensure the plant remains well-fed for several months.
INSERTING A PLANT IS EASY. HERE IS HOW IT WORKS
|Fill the outer pot with approximately 2 cm of water ensuring the water level remains below the inner cup.|
|2. Insert the wick (if not already inserted) through the inner cup hole, so that half of it is inside the cup.|
|Fill the glass with approximately 1 cm of soil.|
|Remove the plant from its original pot ensuring that the roots are loose. If the roots started building on the bottom of the original pot, gently loosen them with your fingers.|
|Hold the plant upright in the inner cup and fill with soil ensuring that the roots are covered.|
|Slightly press the soil to remove any air pockets and top up with more soil if required.|
|Place the inner cup containing the plant into the outer pot. The wick will draw water to the plant’s roots.|
|Top up the outer cup’s water reservoir once it is dry.|
