Where can I the USM World of Plants be employed?
All World of Plants components, as with all USM Haller furniture system components, are designed for indoor use and should only be used indoors.
Can I convert existing USM objects to World of Plants?
As ever with USM, backward compatibility plays an important role, thus the USM plant accessories can easily be integrated into existing USM Haller furniture configurations. Standard metal elements can easily be exchanged with the new plant metal elements or configured directly when planning a new one.
How many pots are integrated in a metal panel?
The plant pot recesses are determined according to the size of the panel.
Why are plants so important?
Humans now spend some 80-90% of their time indoors every day. This way of life in increasingly artificially air-conditioned, dry environments which stress the body. Plants clean the air and increase the humidity and thus increase our well-being. If we let green plants grow and flourish in rooms, they help reduce stress and increase our productivity. In addition, according to psychologists, green stands for relaxation, balance and growth.
How can I clean/replace the water level indicator?
If the internal water level indicator needs to be cleaned or replaced, this is easily possible thanks to the external plastic tube without repotting. Remove the movable marking ring by sliding it off the sight glass. Put this aside. Pull the end cap off the pipe via the sight glass. Put this aside too. Now you can pull the internal water level indicator out of the plastic tube, clean it or replace it. The end tube remains in the pot.
Insert the water level indicator. Put the cover back over the sight glass on the pipe and attach the movable marking ring at the level at which you normally water the plant.
How are the plant pots integrated into the metal panel?
The plant pots are integrated horizontally directly into the panels by means of recesses. Plants can, for example, grow tall in the middle of the structure or correspond to the height of the system: plants as flexible as system USM Haller.
