COLOR CHANGE FROM DRY TO WET

A white indicator means it is time to water your plant.
After watering, Sustee absorbs moisture at root level, like your plant.
As the level of absorbed water rises, the indicator gradually becomes blue.
It takes about 10 minutes to turn completely blue after watering,
but the time varies by the type of soil.
It will last about one year, depending on the type of soil.

 

HOW DOES IT KNOW?

Sustee’s patented technology measures the relation between soil moisture suction and soil moisture content, using the soil moisture retention (pF) curve. Like a plant, it absorbs water from the soil and allows it to evaporate through transpiration holes near the display window. Sustee was tested during development and proven effective by professional growers of orchids, roses and begonias.

The pF curve between 1.7 and 2.3 is the most effective water moisture level for plants. Below 1.7 root rot is likely and above 2.3 the plant starts to dry out and send roots deeper to find water. Sustee is designed to gradually turn white as the soil approaches a level of 2.3, showing you when the plant really needs water to support healthy root development and helping you to avoid watering too frequently.
