Abstract

An isolating plate for a flowerpot for storing water and suplying water with predetermined amount comprises an isolating plate, a groove seat having a spacer, a water control means, a water control chamber, a water supply groove, and an auxiliary water storage chamber. In one application, the auxiliary water storage chamber is an auxiliary water storage basin. By the isolating plate; the isolating plate and the auxiliary water storage basin are placed in the flowerpot. In another application, the auxiliary water storage chamber is formed by a space between the isolating plate and a bottom of the flowerpot. Thereby, by the structure of the isolating plate, the water in the flowerpot is controllable.

Claims

1. An isolating plate for a flowerpot for storing water and supplying water with predetermined amount, comprising: an isolating plate with vent holes, an auxiliary water storage chamber, and a water control chamber; wherein

2. The isolating plate for a flowerpot for storing water and supplying water with predetermined amount as claimed in claim 1, wherein the auxiliary water storage chamber is formed by an auxiliary water storage basin below the isolating plate; isolating plate and the auxiliary water storage basin are placed in the flowerpot; a bottom of the flowerpot has vent holes and thus can not store water, but by the isolating plate and the auxiliary water storage basin, water is stored in the auxiliary water storage basin; amount of water is controlled according to absorption of roots of plants in the flowerpot, moreover, a preferred ventilation is provided.

3. The isolating plate for a flowerpot for storing water and supplying water with predetermined amount as claimed in claim 1, wherein the auxiliary water storage chamber is formed by a space between the isolating plate and a bottom of the flowerpot; the flowerpot has a ventilating tube protruded from a bottom of the flowerpot, the isolating plate is placed in the flowerpot, a space with the flowerpot and below an upper end of the ventilating tube is formed as the water storage space, by the structure of the isolating plate, water in the flowerpot is controllable.

4. The isolating plate for a flowerpot for storing water and supplying water with predetermined amount as claimed in claim 1, wherein the water control means is installed with a soft rubber tube a distal end of the soft tube has a floating block; a slit is formed on the soft rubber tube; a front end of the soft rubber tube has a joint; thereby, when the water control chamber is in high level; the floating block will rise so that the slit is compressed and thus is sealed; thereby, water is stopped; when the water in the water control chamber is in lower level, the floating block descends, and thus the slit opens so that water flow into the slit.

5. The isolating plate for a flowerpot for storing water and supplying water with predetermined amount as claimed in claim 1, wherein the water control means is made of material selected from one of cotton pieces, sponges, foams, which are filled in the water control chamber with a height being the level of water to be supplied; thereby, water in the water storage space is absorbed and then transferred to earth for planting.

6. The isolating plate for a flowerpot for storing water and supplying water with predetermined amount as claimed in claim 2, wherein the isolating plate is integrally formed with the auxiliary water storage basin.
