The most common cause of dead house plants is improper watering: too much (over watering) and they drown; too little and they wither. Wouldn't it be great if you could water your plants like you water your pets ? just put a bowl where they can get to it and let them drink when they're thirsty?
Plantpal is a revolutionary new watering system that makes it just that easy. You fill the hidden reservoir every one to two weeks, and the plants drink when they're thirsty. You can never over water, and the plants won't dry up while you're away on holiday. Just fill the reservoir and enjoy your plants, virtually maintenance free, for up to two weeks or more per fill.
