Are you wondering how does the modern sprouter work?
It all starts with the programmable timer that controls watering frequency. When it goes off, it sends electricity to a noiseless, small air pump. The air pump on the other hand is divided into 3 tubes, one for each plant. Air bubbles travel up each tube into the water reservoir. From there, the air tubes connect with the plant-feeding ones. Because there’s only a single way for the bubbles to escape, they travel up the feeding tubes, taking along a small amount of water drops. These drops are transported right where they’re needed the most – to the roots. That’s how the small seeds will turn into fully grown plants in no time.
These are just technical formalities, you don’t need to figure them out, because your planter arrives pre-assembled, the only thing for you to do is adjust the timer, add your desired plants and water, then plug it in. Just wait a while, you’ll be enjoying every aspect of plant growing – from sprouting, to fully ripen veggies and fruits, to lovely flowers!
