Watering methods
  • Most plants can be watered from a watering can, from above.
capillary matting
Capillary matting
  • This is a material that absorbs water and stays moist.
slide6

Pupils made this automatic watering system. Water drips very slowly out of the tube onto capillary matting, lining the tray. The plants absorb the water.

misting systems
Misting Systems

Misting systems produce water spraying droplets that are smaller than a human hair.

Millions of these tiny droplets hit the surrounding air, "flash evaporate", and quickly reduce temperatures 25 to 35 degrees.

underwatering plants
Underwatering plants
  • Underwatered plants wilt, have dry, yellow leaves and dry compost.
overwatering plants
Overwatering plants
  • If compost or soil is waterlogged, roots are starved of air.
