Bubblegum Stuff - Plant Life Support - Automatic Watering System - 350 ml
About this deal
This is no bird-of-paradise-flower-situation, these spicy red numbers are unmistakably penile from head to shaft. Except for the little green bit on the stem, obvs. If you actually have one of those on your knob, please see a doctor, you may be at risk of being diagnosed as a plant.
It’s great for when you’re away. Maybe you’re not necessarily forgetful when it comes to watering your plants but you are going away for a few days and don’t have anyone who can come in and keep them hydrated. Plant Life Support will work for that too and ensure they stay nice and lively while you’re not there. Plant life cycles vary according to the type of plant. For a bean plant, there are the following stages of growth from the seed to the mature plant: When you’re ready to repot your plants into something more fitting (coming soon: the Firebox terracotta vagina), the magical eco-friendly cube will slowly decompose and turn into valuable coconut fibre fertiliser for the plant, enriched with all sorts of stuff that makes chillies fully erect big and handsome.
Plant Life Support is probably exactly what you’d imagine. It’s a mini IV-drip filled with water that gradually ensures your plants get the H2O they need even if you forget for days on end. “Introducing Plant Life Support, the miniature lifelike IV drip for your houseplants! Pop it into a pot with the included stand, fill it up with water and it’ll take care of the rest – slowly feeding your plant with just the right amount of water as and when it needs it,” the item description reads.

Publisher’s Note This year in National Plant Health Week (from the 9th May) we are working with the RHS to encourage younger garden visitors to learn why plants are so important to our survival and what we can do in our own gardens at home to contribute to this important work nationally.

Plant health is just about the most important thing a budding gardener can learn. After years in the garden nurturing and learning from our successes and our failures, gardeners become kind of ‘plant doctors’! We all know the feeling: you come home to find your parlour palm lifeless and limp, soil as dry as the Gobi Desert - it’s devastating. But it doesn’t have to be that way... Plant Life Support ™ is a self-watering system that will sustain your indoor plants when you’re not around.
No longer do you have to "leaf" your plants in the murderous hands of a friend or relative whilst you’re away on that dream trip. You can allow Plant Life Support ™ to drip-feed everything your plant needs for the duration of your vacation. Peace of mind: it’s the "root" of all happiness. Using light emitting diodes (LEDs) to grow plants was proposed and patented through a NASA Commercialization Center at the University of Wisconsin ( Barta et al., 1992). LEDs were first used in the Astroculture (ASC) plant chamber aboard the Space Shuttle ( Morrow et al., 1995) then the Advanced Astroculture Chamber (ADVASC) ( Link et al., 2003), and later the Veggie and Advanced Plant Habitat for the ISS, both of which are currently flying aboard the ISS ( Massa et al., 2016; Morrow et al., 2016). To support the development of LED lighting for space, NASA sponsored ground testing from the early 1990’s through the mid 2000’s with leafy greens and other crops ( Goins et al., 1997; Kim et al., 2004; Massa et al., 2008). These studies showed that both red and blue light improved plant photosynthesis and growth ( Bula et al., 1991; Dougher and Bugbee, 2001; Yorio et al., 2001; Douglas et al., 2016). Subsequent LED studies revealed important roles for green and far-red light as well ( Spencer et al., 2020). Recent NASA research showed that supplementing with far-red LEDs can act like adding more photosynthetically active radiation--PAR (400–700nm) ( Zhen and Bugbee, 2020), and that LEDs can achieve remarkable efficiencies (>3µmol/J), which could greatly reduce electrical power needs for BLSS ( Kusuma et al., 2020). This has far-reaching implications for future missions. In addition to electric lighting systems, solar lighting techniques that use concentrators and fiber optics were also explored for growing crops ( Cuello et al., 2000; Nakamura et al., 2009).
