The amount of attention and care a plant needs depends on the kind of plant it is and what kind of an environment it is grown in. Some plants can survive on the littlest amount of water for weeks at a time whereas some would need constant watering and irrigation to avoid stagnant water from destroying the roots or causing mold. It is well know that bigger a plant’s roots are, the bigger the plant is. However, what can be done to ensure that the plant gets the exact amount of water that is needed for its growth and survival?

Introducing Octopot, learn more a plant watering and irrigation solution. The Octopot lets the plants self-water for around a week or more while ensuring that there aren’t any nutrients or water being wasted. It does not need any electricity, pumps or water chillers to function and is a very low maintenance watering system. Plants are able to feed on demand according to their needs and that increases their rate of growth as there are no periods of drought or drowning from over or under watering. Improper aeration and lack of oxygenated water creates root circling or root rot. The Octopot does not waste water, fertilizer or any useful nutrients and saves the user’s time and money.

The Octopot Sparkrock Grow System can water and feed the plant for up to a week or ten days depending on the size and growth stage of the pant.
