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
WHAT SHIPPING OPTIONS DO YOU OFFER?
All our orders ship via Auspost express for a flat rate of $12.95. If you would like us to add signature on delivery it is $15.95. For customers within 15 km of our delivery base in Hurstville we offer hand delivery, which is a flat rate of $12.95. 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.
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 use non biodegradable materials that have been used when shipping pots to us that we prefer to re-use than trash.
DO YOU SEND UPDATES?
There are no updates until your order ships. Orders placed before 9pm Friday ship the following Mon - Thur. Orders placed after 9pm Friday won't ship until the week after. We never ship on public holidays or weekends. If your order takes an unusually long time to arrive and the plants are not healthy or arrive damaged, please take as many photos as possible, including the box if it's damaged, and send them to us at firstname.lastname@example.org so we can make it right.
HOW LONG DOES MY ORDER TAKE TO ARRIVE?
Orders will post Monday through Thursday via Auspost express. The cut off time for next weeks orders is 9pm each Friday. You will have the option to track your parcel and/or receive notifications through SMS or email. 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, contact us for information on how to get your order shipped to a plant concierge that can treat the plants and forward to you.
