About Sustee

How do I know when to water my plants?

The NEW Sustee ‘watering checker’ or some may like to call it a 'moisture meter' has landed in Australia. This clever little device can tell you when to water your plant and when not to water. It's a houseplant lovers dream!  The houseplant community of Australia are going wild for it! Your Houseplants will thank you for it!

Sustee’s patented technology measures the relation between soil moisture suction and soil moisture content, using the soil moisture retention (pF) curve. Like a plant, it absorbs water from the soil and allows it to evaporate through transpiration holes near the display window.

The Sustee will simply turn blue once hydrated and turn back to white when your plant requires a drink. It's really that simple, your children can help learn how to care for houseplants along with you.

Here at Plants in a Box, we have been so excited to see Sustee, an award-winning device save many a houseplant. Watering your houseplants has never been easier.
