The Tropf-Blumat Maxi acts as a regulator and dripper, just like the standard Tropf-Blumat, however, it is 9 inches (23 cm) long in total and has an insertion depth of 6 to 7 inches (15-18 cm). Therefore, it's application makes sense only above a container height of 12 inches (30 cm) or for a planting depth of 12 inches (30 cm), typical for larger planting tubs and solitary plants in troughs on patios and roof gardens, and also for individual solitary garden shrubs.
The Tropf-Blumat Maxi enables the moisture levels in deeper layers, close to the roots, to be monitored and regulated. Watering occurs more seldom but therefore more intensely - the surface of the tub stays drier.
Before installing the Tropf-Blumat Maxi, a hole is normally predrilled or cored, the clay cone is then inserted and held in place using a mud slurry (instructions included) in order to achieve good soil contact.
