I have been doing a lot of research on this and haven’t found anything like my idea. I want to create a pot that waters itself by extracting water from the humidity in the air. This pot would also be able to be manually pre-filled with water incase there is a low-humidity day and the plant needs a lot of watering. Do you guys think this would be a good idea?
Im in insurance so I may not be the best to answer this but I also think it can be a great idea. I’m wondering though, how would the pots accounts for the size of the plant for those plants needing water on their leaves?
Thanks to you both for the encouragement. To answer your question, the way that I’ve designed the pot is to water from the side using a telescoping antenna type of stick. This would only raise up if the plant is needed water. I wasn’t thinking of incorporating a screen or anything like that but maybe it would be helpful?
There are umpteen million automatic plant waterers that exist, so are you saying you have a proprietary idea that builds the auto-watering functionality into a pot, and that the water source would come from the humidity in the air?
April, yes my idea is unique. It would combine a humidity system with a filler system. So you can fill the reservoir up prior or use the humidity system by itself or as a backup. Do you think that it’s worth pursuing? Do you have experience in this?
