We do not always have the time that plants require from us. And sometimes we just forget about them. To solve this issue, CitySens products include different automatic irrigation systems.

Vertical planter

The base of the CitySens vertical planter acts as a water tank with a capacity of 7 liters. It includes a very quiet water pump which is connected to the timer. By programming the timer, you will activate the water pump, so the water rises to the upper planter. From the upper planter the water goes down from planter to planter, watering each plant on its path.

Set the irrigation according to the needs of the plant family, or according to the conditions of your home. For example, herbs need lots of light and more frequent watering than indoor plants.

This self-watering system is biomimetic. That means, it mimics the water cycle of nature. Once the water is in the top planter, it flows down from pot to pot like a waterfall, watering each plant on its way. The excess of water is collected back at the base of the planter in the tank and will be reused in the next irrigation cycle. This way, we achieve savings up to 50% in water and nutrients. Furthermore, the self-watering system is a 30 to 60 days plant sitter.

We have taken into account all the details: the water pump is very quiet, and the timer has an electricity consumption of only €0.2 / year.

No extra tubes, no extra connections, no hassles. The self-watering system is mounted at the same time that you assemble the structure. Once the structure is assembled, the irrigation takes place inside the pots in a clean and safe way.

Due to the modularity, the irrigation system for the plant shelves is an autonomous drip irrigation system.

The drip irrigation system is versatile and can be used to water any kind of plants. It includes a 7L water tank with water level indicator, water pump, timer, transparent irrigation tube, pressure compensated drippers, connectors and stakes to fix the drippers to the pots.

It is a suitable irrigation system for indoor plants, balcony plants and even small urban gardens. It is a very efficient watering system as the appropriate watering for your plants can be set via the timer and drippers.

Wall Planter

The CitySens wall planter includes a capillary irrigation system. It is a very simple irrigation system: the outer pot acts as a water tank and with a cotton string the water constantly moistens the substrate, and the plant will always receive the water it needs. It is an ideal solution for individual pots. Using the capillary irrigation, you can leave the plants well-watered alone at your home during holidays.

The irrigation autonomy varies according to the size of the plant, the light and the temperature. So, we recommend for the first few weeks you look closely at the needs of the plant to know exactly its needs.

This type of irrigation does not need programming. It is an ideal self-irrigation system for people who want an easy-to-install solution with a short set-up time.

Capillarity irrigation is suitable for indoor plants that need constantly humidity such as ferns, pothos or philodendrons. It is also suitable for watering herbs with high watering needs such as mint, pennyroyal, basil.
