From the desk of the product designer:
Behind the design
“Getting a small amount of water to drip consistently is surprisingly hard! The "aha!" moment was leaving the pushpins in the tubing. That made it easy to adjust the size of the drip hole.”
By the numbers
Drip valves tested: 8
Tubing used: 10 meters
Water spills: too many to count
I gave this project a 10/10 because I like seeing the plants grow every single day.
My grandson, age 8, really enjoyed this kit! His family has a small garden and I thought this would be a great teaching project. I’m hoping to order another one for my great nephew.
The plants grow healthy.
