T-flowerpot / Flowerpot

T-flowerpot
T-flowerpot

This is a flowerpot design, especially for cactuses and succulents. These kinds of plants are slow-growing and need little water during the growth. So it's difficult to control the cultivation methods, irrigation volume and times. The flowerpot has two layers structure. when the water in the soil evaporates, the weight changes. Then the two layers make a displacement by the elastic springs inside. People can see the wet conditions inside directly from the “tube” on the surface of the outer layer and water the plants with the right volume at the right time.
