Sustee Aqua Meter
Are you killing your plants by being too generous on the watering side of things? Or are you one of those busy plant parents who simply forget?
The new Sustee ‘watering checker’ has landed in Australia and this clever little device can tell you when to water your plant and when not to.
Pop your fail-proof device in your pot plant and you’ll be at ease for quenching your plant’s thirst!
After watering your plant the Sustee device absorbs moisture at the root level, just like your plant, then the level of absorbed water rises and the indicator gradually becomes blue.
It takes about 10 minutes to turn completely blue after watering. You will know it's time to water when the colour changes from blue to white. It's really that simple!
Sustee stays in place so it does not disturb your growing roots. Sustee size S is best for small or shallow pots with plant roots about 5cm deep

CAN I PICK UP IN STORE?
If you would like to pick up your order from our store there is no additional charge. Pick up hours are Fridays and Saturdays from 10 am - 4 pm, and Sunday from 11 am - 2 pm. Once notified your order is ready to be picked up please ensure that you pick up your order by 2pm Sunday. The store is closed Mon-Wed so plants not picked up are not able to be cared for and are left there at buyers risk. Orders placed after midnight Friday may not be available until the following week.
Pick up suspended until store re-opens
HOW DO YOU SHIP THE PLANTS?
Most of the time the plants are sent in their nursery pots. Occasionally, due to large plants or a large order we may have to ship bare rooted. We use compostable plastic bags and 100% biodegradable 'foam peanuts'. We also sometimes recycle non biodegradable materials that have been used when orders have been shipped to us.
DO YOU SEND UPDATES?
There are no updates until your order ships. Orders placed before midnight Saturday ship the following Mon - Thur, excluding public holidays. You will have the option to track your order via sms or email updates.
HOW LONG DOES MY ORDER TAKE TO ARRIVE?
We ship every Monday through Thursday via Auspost. The cut off time for next weeks orders is midnight Saturday. Most orders arrive a couple of days after they are shipped however due to Covid, delays may be experienced.
WHERE DO YOU SHIP?
We can ship anywhere in Australia excluding NT, WA, and TAS. Unfortunately those states have quarantine laws which do not allow us to ship there. For those living in NT, WA, and TAS, you may wish to contact https://homeofhouseplants.com.au/ or https://www.rareplants.net.au/ to find out about their concierge service. Many of our customers regularly use them. Plants sent via a concierge service will always ship bare rooted.
WHAT IF MY ORDER ARRIVES DAMAGED?
99.9% of orders arrive in great condition. If however, your plants or pots arrive in poor condition, please send us as many pics as possible- including the box if it's damaged- and send them to us at email@example.com so we can work out a solution.
