How to set up Plant Straws?
Q: How to install the straw?! 👀
A: Glad you asked! It's not very complicated, and the easiest way to do it is to simply lift the plant out of its pot to get the wick down into the soil, under the roots. Or whilst repotting. Here's a few things to consider:
Water your plant and moisten the wick before setup to start the flow from vase to plant.
Place one end of the Plant Straw in the vase, and the other in the plant.
Plant Straws are asymmetric to allow for a variety of setups, so you can use either end in your plant.
To minimize evaporation, place the end of the metal tube at least 3 cm/1 in. into the soil.
Adjust the moisture level by placing a shorter or longer length of the wick in the pot.
Refill and shift the water in the vase regularly.
Wash, cut down, or replace the wick as it wears out over time. Use a nylon thread to guide the new wick through the tube.
