Automated Plant Watering Systems for the lazy
Hmm, I never thought that plants were that much work. Sure, every once and awhile they need watering and the occasional rays of sunlight can’t hurt, but is it really that much to ask?
Supposedly it is, because people actually buy the Automated Plant Watering System which lets you be even lazier than you already are.
The box, which will go terribly with a garden, can water up to 20 plants for a total of 40 days without needing any interaction from you. That’s right, no spigot or external power source is needed.
Attached to the box is a 32’ PVC hose that branches off to form the 20 drippers which handle the actual watering of your plants. For larger plants, you can simply place multiple drippers into the plant. The six and a half gallon reservoir will water the plants for up to 40 days, but you can also choose 10, 20, and 30 days. Your lazy self will have to remember to refill the reservoir every month or so.
While you don’t need to plug this box in, it needs some power, but you can be lazy about that, too. One 9 volt battery powers the watering system for about a year.
Unfortunately there’s no system for artificial sunlight just yet, so every once and awhile you’ll have to remember about those poor plants and give them some light. Other than that you can totally ignore them.
For a mere $65 you can be one of the laziest plant owners around. These automated plant watering systems are available from good old Hammacher.
