Installation of Tropf-Blumat at roof terrace green house
"Allow us to share our insights from several months of operation of the Blumat systems. We installed the system with a view to a peaceful holiday, and we are used to travel far and for 4 weeks. We decided not to burden children with additional activities in our greenhouse, because now they have a yearly consolation and many other professional duties.
But to the point - the system has exceeded our expectations, in short it is almost brilliant and after small modifications it is really perfect. We came back after a month of holidays and what we saw in our greenhouse was classified rather as fiction scene films. Our plants overgrown everything so thoroughly that it was impossible to enter the greenhouse, let alone pass by. Cucumbers of 1.5 - 2.0 kg hung on the bushes (3.0 m of bushes) - we collected over 40 kg from the floor alone, and the rest we are still fighting today and a few weeks have passed. Paprika and tomatoes are doing well, other plants grow like on the proverbial yeast. We are aware that this is due to proper irrigation.
I said that the system is almost brilliant, because it lacked the possibility of fertilisation. We solved this quickly by installing a necklace bottle behind the reducer with two tubes in the cork - the inlet and the outlet. Sleep a little bit of fertilizer into the bottle, pour water, turn off the bottle and the system works as before, but it feeds the plants (in our case the jungle) with the necessary mineral salts. I allowed myself to attach a few photos to illustrate this.
