Blumat Jr. – Automatic Watering Stake



The Blumat Jr. (or Blumat Classic) is an easy-to-use automatic watering stake for your houseplants. The product was first introduced in 1965 and has been a trusted solution for providing indoor plants the exact amount of water that they need. Enjoy peace of mind knowing that your plants will be properly hydrated, whether you remember or not! Blumat Jr. water stakes consist of a ceramic cone and attached thin tube that draws water naturally from any contain you choose. A long weekend, a vacation, or getting too busy often leads to indoor plants dying because of a lack of water. This incredible product allows you to choose ANY container size you prefer - this acts as a reservoir for the Blumat Jr. to pull water from. Choose a decorative vase, a tall glass, or any container that fits your specific needs. Heading out of town? Use a large container to ensure your plant has plenty of water until you return. Rather than guessing whether your plant is over or under watered, the Blumat Jr. will provide more water as your plant’s soil dries - allowing for a consistent and accurate flow of water suited specifically for your indoor plant. As the water level lowers in the container you’ve chosen, simply add more water and allow the Blumat Jr. to do the rest. ...More Details

Instructions for Use

Step 1
Fill a bowl with water. Remove the green cap of the Blumat Jr. Put both the top and ceramic cone into the bow; to soak for at least 15 minutes.

Step 2
Holding the cone and green cap underwater, knock out any air bubbles by lightly shaking or tapping the pieces. Then press the cap back on tightly.
Tip: Submerging the tubing in your desired water container before pressing the cap on the cone will help to push excess air bubbles out of the tubing allowing the system to begin working quicker.

Step 3
Push the ceramic completely into the soil leaving the green cap exposed.

Step 4
Put the connected tube into the bottom of a full container of water.

Step 5
Ensure the water level of the container is level with or only slightly below the green cap. Raising or lowering the container’s water level will increase or decrease the flow rate.

Tips on Using Your Blumat Jr.

Maintenance It is recommended to remove the cap and soak both pieces in warm water for 5 minutes at least once a year. While holding the product under water, press the green cap off and on several times to aid in flushing out any impurities. The inside and outside of the ceramic cone may be brushed as well to remove any finite debris.

Refilling Your Container Once the Blumat Jr. has been placed into your plant’s growing medium, you won’t need to remove it when the water level gets low in your container. Simply fill up a glass with water and pour it directly into the container to refill the water to an optimal level.

Empty Water Container If you forget to add more water and your water container runs out completely, be sure to repeat the setup instructions before reusing. This will ensure the ceramic cone is filled with water in order for the water stake to work properly. The water level inside the Blumat Jr. will remain virtually unchanged.

Extra Large Plants For larger plants you may use two Blumat Jr. watering stakes for proper absorption. In addition, you may raise your water container so that the water level is a few inches above the height of the green cap – this will increase the flow rate.

Nutrients If your plant requires nutrients or fertilizer it can be added to your water container, and the Blumat Jr. will provide it for your plant through the water as well.

Additional Saturation With a watering can, directly water the plant every 4 – 6 weeks to encourage additional water saturation in your growing medium.
