Take These Steps Today to Prevent Water Pollution
Each year, 14 billion pounds of garbage is dumped into the ocean. This is a shocking statistic, but it is the result of a failure of people around the world to make simple changes to their habits. There are big steps you can take such as going plastic free, but it can take time to drastically shift your lifestyle.
Click here to read about how you can keep your water clean and free from harmful substances.
In 2017, it was estimated that 35% of Americans took a family vacation. Whether a big trip or a small weekend getaway is in your plans, some household tasks still require attention while away.
If you are simply looking to get your seedlings started, or even just looking for a more controlled watering method, the Blumat Capillary Mat System may be able to help. More than just water efficiency, these systems can save large costs in labor, fertilizer and pesticide use, as well as shorten production time. Along with their simple set-up, any level of experience grower can easily take a few steps to get this system up and running.
This is a new product that could save some of you both money
and time. Instead of needing a quick connect for each carrot, with
this you can disconnect up to 6 with just one and save the time for doing
so many. (Includes caps so you can have between 1 and 6 attached.)
Everyone knows that root observation is a great way of determining a healthy plant,
and the more roots the bigger your plants will grow. But how about when you add
consistent accurate moisture to the equation? Well we had one Blumat user send us
these pics to show exactly that.

Take a look at these "Blumat buds " grown by our good friends over in Oregon.
Anywhere from 97% to 99.5% of the water taken up by the roots of a plant ends up being released back into the air. During this process, a physical change in the state, or phase, of water occurs—from liquid water to water vapor. Implementing a watering system that uses less water on average effectively reduces the amount of water getting into the plants between 50% and 60%, which in turn reduces the overall amount of latent heat in the system. By reducing the amount of latent heat by 50% reduces the total heat of an air conditioning system by as much as 25%.
