Abstract

(57) [Problem] To provide an inexpensive device for supplying water to plants in a bonsai tree or a planter on behalf of a person for a long time after a certain time has elapsed after installation. It is an issue. Kind Code: A1 A stopper and a lid used for an apparatus for stably supplying water to plants in a planter using a plastic bottle generally discarded in a large amount. As shown in the figure, the present invention relates to a special stopper or lid for discharging a small amount of water in a plastic bottle after a certain time has elapsed after installation.

Description

DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE INVENTION

[0001]

BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION 1. Field of the Invention The present invention is for automatically supplying water to a bonsai or a plant in a planter which is often placed in a general household. When a person is away from home for a long time, water is supplied on behalf of the person to protect the plant.

[0002]

2. Description of the Related Art Conventionally, an appliance utilizing a capillary phenomenon has been generally used, but this causes water to be supplied from the time of installation. Just give your planter a lot of water just before you go on a long trip, so you don't have to do it for the first three or four days. If water supply is started from the time of installation, water in the water supply container will be wasted. If you fill a dish-shaped container with water and put it in each bonsai or planter, you do not need to supply water for several days. However, if the period of immersion in water is too long, the roots will be damaged. A rubber plug in the hole at the bottom of the planter can prevent water from escaping, but heavy rain will flood the entire area, and if you go out for a long period of time, you will still damage the roots of the plant.

[0003]

SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION It is an object of the present invention to provide an inexpensive apparatus for supplying water to plants in a plunge after a certain period of time has elapsed after installation.

[0004]

SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION The present invention is intended to effectively use a plastic container for drink called a PET bottle, which is generally circulated and discarded in large quantities, and is useful for supplying water to plants in a planter. This will be described below with reference to the drawings. (A) FIG. 1 is a perspective view showing an example of a plug according to the present invention, wherein 1 is a main body of the plug. 1 is perforated and a fibrous or water-permeable porous string 2 is passed through. 2
Melts by heating with a string of chemical fibers. Reference numeral 4 denotes a portion which is heated and melted and hardened to make it easier to pass through the hole. You may cut after passing. (B) Reference numeral 3 in FIG. 1 denotes the end of the string which is exposed to the narrow side of the stopper, that is, the PET bottle container side when attached. Reference numeral 40 denotes a recessed portion, on which a water-soluble object is attached or painted so as to cover the gap 3 without gaps. FIG. 2 is a cross-sectional view in which a water-soluble object 5 is applied to the recessed portion to cover 3 without gaps. FIG. 3 is a cross-sectional view in which a water-soluble object 6 is attached to the recessed portion and covers 3. FIG. 9 shows the main part 3 of the stopper.
Attach a plate-shaped water-soluble object 38 to the thin end face of 7,
It is sectional drawing which covered the exposed part of the string similarly to the above. Water-soluble objects can be made from chemical fertilizers, starch paste and the like that are harmless to plants. (C) 19 in FIG. 6 is a main body portion of the lid of the present invention, 20 is a cylindrical portion extending inward and having a hole in the center,
String 2 made of fibrous or water-permeable porous material
One is passed. Reference numeral 23 denotes a female thread portion, which can be attached to the mouth of the plastic bottle. 22 is 21
The exposed part of This 22 is covered by a water-soluble object 25. Instead of 25, a water-soluble object may be applied or applied as described with reference to FIGS. Reference numeral 24 denotes a gasket for preventing leakage. (D) FIG. 8 also shows a lid according to the present invention, in which the main body of the lid is divided into a threaded portion 31 and a water-soluble object 33 attached portion 32. 32 is a resilient material which also functions as a gasket for preventing leakage. A hole is made in the hole 32, and an object 35 permeable to water is packed in the hole. Reference numeral 34 denotes an exposed portion of a water-soluble object 33.
Covers 35. A tube 36 is attached to a portion of the 32 that comes out of the plastic bottle. (E) FIG. 4 is a schematic view of a water supply device to which the tap of the present invention is attached. Reference numeral 9 denotes a main body of the stopper, which is inserted into the mouth of the plastic bottle 7. A small hole 8 is formed near the bottom of the plastic bottle 7. This hole 8 is for preventing the inside of the plastic bottle from becoming negative pressure when supplying water. 12 is a pedestal made of wire to support a plastic bottle filled with water. The above-mentioned porous string 10 through which the above-mentioned fiber or water passes is passed through 9, and a tube 11 is covered to prevent evaporation. (F) FIG. 7 is a schematic view of a water supply device provided with a lid according to the present invention. Reference numeral 28 denotes a body portion of the lid, which is screwed into the mouth of the plastic bottle 26. A small hole 27 is drilled near the bottom of the plastic bottle. Reference numeral 30 denotes a device for supporting a plastic bottle. 28 is passed through the above-mentioned fibrous or water-permeable porous string 29.

[0005]

FIG. 5 is an explanatory view in which a water supply device equipped with a tap according to the present invention is installed in a planter. The water in the plastic bottle 14 tends to flow downward through the fibrous or water-permeable porous string 15 due to gravity, but water-soluble objects such as 5 in FIG. 2, 6 in FIG. 3, and 38 in FIG. Are covering and hindering it. For this reason, the water in the plastic bottle cannot flow until these water-soluble objects are dissolved in the water.
The time required for the water-soluble substance to dissolve in water varies depending on the thickness, material, and temperature. The time can be freely selected by selecting the thickness and material. When a water-soluble substance, which was obstructing the flow of water in the plastic bottle, dissolves in the water, the water becomes a small amount of flow due to gravity and the capillary action in the fibrous or porous string 15 through which the water flows to the planter. Supplied to planted plants.
When the flow starts, the water pressure is high, but due to the viscosity of the water-soluble substance dissolved in the water, the flow resistance in the string 15 is large and the flow rate is suppressed. As the water in the PET bottle decreases, the water pressure decreases, but the amount of the water-soluble substance dissolved in the water also decreases, and the flow rate does not decrease much. PET bottles have a large capacity of 1.5 liters or 2 liters, and keep the planter moist for a long time. Therefore, even if a person is away from home and watering for more than ten days, the danger of the plants drying and withering is reduced. Similar effects can be obtained by using a lid as shown in FIGS. 6 and 8 instead of the stopper.

[0006]

DESCRIPTION OF THE PREFERRED EMBODIMENTS FIG. 5 is an explanatory view in which a water supply device in which a plug of the present invention is attached to a planter is installed as described above.
The planter part is depicted in cross section. The pedestal portion indicated by 16 supports the weight of the plastic bottle 14. The soil 17 enters the planter 13, and the plant 18 is planted. After the time in which the water in the plastic bottle dissolves the water-soluble substance in the water at the base thereof, the string penetrates the soil in 15 ways. Tube 15 is attached to 15 to reduce evaporation of water, and the tip of 15 is buried in soil.

[0007]

According to the present invention, water can be supplied to the plant in the planter using a PET bottle which is easily available and has a large capacity, after a certain period of time has elapsed since the installation, and without a human being for a long period of time.
