Rainy Pergola / Pot culture

Rainy Pergola
Rainy Pergola

If not watered timely, some plants will wither or even die due to their shallow roots and quick evaporation of water in the small pots.
A cloud-shaped plastic water container can be sustained above the flowerpot via steel sticks of proper length. The water in the“cloud”can wet the plant for about one week, dripping along the sticks like rain from the cloud. And the climbers crawl upwards along the steel bars, making the whole process so romantic.
Separated steels work well to offset the flow impact to tiny plants and make the water from the container more gently-distributed. So, the soft irrigation ensures the healthy growth of plants.
