I was chatting on the Australian Agave Collectors Page on Facebook, and a couple of people PM'd me about how I water my agaves.
This is my SMALL growing plant collection.... so nothing that is going to get huge. I'm going through a series of Allergy desensitisation at the moment which is killing my ability to get out and do some gardening ( 3 weeks.... 2 more injections and hopefully I can move onto stage 2 of the desensitisation - so shots every 3 weeks instead of EVERY week)
In the meantime I needed a way to make sure my precious babies got watered. So this is what I came up with.
Unfotunately there is a bit of overflow from the pots, so I had to come up with a way to use that.
The local primary school was clearing some old science tables - just had to make a small donation to school for these! the overflow from the pots drips onto the tables below. The plants at the back DO get dripped on, but the rest are bottom watered - which works well for most of those attenuata babies.
Excellent, now I'm not wasting water AND I get more plants watered. winning!
