  • DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE PREFERRED EMBODIMENTS
  • Referring to FIGS. 1 and 2, the present invention will be described herein. The present invention includes an isolating plate [0019] 10 with vent holes 11, an auxiliary water storage basin 25, and a water control chamber.
  • The isolating plate [0020] 10 has a downward groove seat 12. The groove seat 12 is installed with a spacer 17 having a cover 18. The spacer 17 spaces the groove seat 12 into a water control chamber 14 and a water supply groove 13. The spacer 17 is not tightly sealed so that water in the water control chamber 14 can drain into the water supply groove 13. The cover 18 above the spacer 17 seals the opening at the upper end of the water control chamber 14 of the groove seat 12. Thereby, the planting earth will not drop into the water control chamber 14. The opening at the upper end of the water supply groove 13 is not sealed so that the planting earth fills into the groove 13 to absorb water in the groove 13. Moreover, a lower end of the water control chamber 14 has a penetrating water hole 15. The lower end of the water hole 15 is communicated to a water storage space W (auxiliary water storage basin 25). An upper end of the water hole 15 is assembled with a water control means 20 so that water in the water storage space flows into the water control chamber 14. Moreover, the water level is controlled in a proper value by the water control means 20 (amount of water is not too much) so that the water in the water supply groove 13 is not too much.
  • An auxiliary water storage basin [0021] 25 has a water storage space W. A ventilating tube 26 is installed at a place not to communicate with the groove seat 12 of the isolating plate 10. The upper end of the ventilating tube 26 is lower than the bottom of the isolating plate 10 and has a gap to the bottom of the isolating plate 10 so that water will not contact the isolating plate 10. Thereby, air flows into the space below the bottom of the isolating plate 10 through the ventilating tube 26.
  • A water control means [0022] 20 is installed with a soft rubber tube 22. A distal end of the soft tube 22 has a floating block 24. A slit 23 is formed on the soft rubber tube 22. A front end of the soft rubber tube 22 has a joint. Thereby, when the water control chamber 14 is in high level. The floating block 24 will rise so that the slit 23 is compressed and thus is sealed. Thereby, water is stopped. When water in the water control chamber 14 is in lower level, the floating block 24 descends, and thus the slit 23 opens so that water flows into the slit.
  • The effect and advantage of the present invention will be described in the followings. [0023]
  • In this application, the present invention is used to a flowerpot. With reference to FIGS. 3A and 3B, in FIG. 3A, a flowerpot has a body [0024] 1. A plurality of vent holes 2 are formed on a bottom of the body 1. In use, as shown in FIG. 3B, the present invention (comprising the isolating plate 10 and the auxiliary water storage basin 25) is placed in the bottom of the body 1. Thereby, earth can be filled in the isolating plate 10 and plants are planted, then watering the earth. Water will flow to the water storage space W of the auxiliary water storage basin 25 through the vent holes 11 of the isolating plate 10. When water is higher than the ventilating tube 26 of the auxiliary water storage basin 25. Water will flow out from the ventilating tube 26, knowing that water is full.
  • In water supply and control, the planting earth is filled into the water supply groove [0025] 13 of the groove seat 12. Water in the auxiliary water storage basin 25 is communicated to the water control chamber 14 of the groove seat 12. The water in the water control chamber 14 is communicated to the water supply groove 13. Thereby, planting earth may absorb water for supplying to plants. The water in the water control chamber 14 will be described herein. Referring to FIG. 3, when in high level (no water is necessary), see FIG. 3A, water will cause that water in the water control chamber 14 rises up so that the soft rubber tube 22 rises up, and thus the slit 23 is compressed and thus is sealed. Thereby, water will not flow into the water control chamber 14 to retain the level of the water control chamber 14. When roots of the plants absorb water, water in the water supply groove 13 and water control chamber 14 are used and thus is descent to a lower level, as shown in FIG. 3B. The floating block 24 descends so that the soft rubber tube 22 bends downwards. Therefore, the slit 23 opens. Water in the water storage space W flows into the water control chamber 14 through the water hole 15, soft rubber tube 22, and slit 23. Thereby, it has the effect of supplying water and stopping water. Since the level is limited, amount of water is limited.
  • Furthermore, it is appreciated.that the auxiliary water storage basin [0026] 25 of the present invention is formed with a ventilating tube 26. Level set by the ventilating tube 26 is lower than the bottom of the isolating plate 10. The isolating plate 10 has a plurality of vent holes 11. The roots of plants breathe freely. However, this is not seen in the prior art.
  • Moreover, another application of the present invention will be described herein, with referring to FIGS. 4A and 4B. FIG. 4A shows a flowerpot body [0027] 3. A bottom of the body 3 has a ventilating tube 4 having a predetermined height (at this kind of flowerpot, the ventilating tube 4 causes that air can enter into the planting earth). In use, no auxiliary water storage basin 25 is used. It is only necessary that the isolating plate 10 and groove seat 12 are placed in.the body 3, as shown in FIG. 4B. A bottom of the body 3 has a ventilating tube 4 having a predetermined height. Thereby, a bottom of the body 3 has a water storage space W. Since in the present invention, the isolating plate 10 spaces the planting earth so that a ventilating space is formed between the bottom of the isolating plate 10 and the surface of water. Therefore, the effects of water filling, stopping and supplying with a preset amount are achieved. Namely, even no auxiliary water storage basin 25, the body 3 is formed with a ventilating tube 4 to use with the isolating plate of the present invention. However, this is within the scope of the present invention.
  • Moreover, the following embodiment will be described herein. [0028]
  • (1) Referring to FIGS. 5 and 6, a bottom of a flowerpot body [0029] 30 is installed with a plurality of vent holes 32, groove seat 33, and an isolating plate 10 with groove seat 33. Moreover, a matched water storage tank 26 are installed. The lateral side of the water storage tank 36 has a vent hole 37. The isolating plate 31 has a groove seat 33. A bottom of the groove seat 33 has a water hole 35. The groove seat 33 is spaced by a spacer 17 so as to form a water control chamber 34 and a water supply groove 331. A water control means 20 is placed in the water control chamber 34. The water supply groove 331 is communicated to a groove 330 and planting earth can be placed in the water supply groove 331. The above mentioned structure has the effect of water storage, supply and control. Thereby, it is within the scope of the present invention.
  • (2) Referring to FIG. 7, the isolating plate [0030] 10 and auxiliary water storage basin 25 of FIG. 1 are formed as an integral body (by for example, gluing or shaping by blowing, etc.). Although this can not be used to the structure illustrated in FIG. 4A, it can be used to the flowerpot 1 with flat bottom and vent holes 2 at the bottom thereof.
  • (3) The water control means [0031] 40 is made by water absorbing material 40 (such as sponge, cotton layer, foam rubber). Water in the water storage space can be absorbed into the water control chamber 14. Then the planting earth contacts the water absorbing material 40 in the water supply groove 13. When the water absorbing material 40 saturates; no water is absorbed further, while water absorbed in the material is further absorbed by planting earth and thus the saturation is lowered. Moreover, this design has the functions of water storage and supply only the water control means is made by different material (water absorbing material).
  • The present invention is thus described, it will be obvious that the same may be varied in many ways. Such variations are not to be regarded as a departure from the spirit and scope of the present invention, and all such modifications as would be obvious to one skilled in the art are intended to be included within the scope of the following claims.
