Does anyone know where I could buy a container that you fill with water, bring to pressure by hand/foot pump, which then feeds water up a long telescopic lance to water plants in a restaurant several metres tall?

When I lived in a truck, I had a foot pump attached to a 5 gallon water container and I could pump water into the little sink via a tap. I got all this equipment from a caravan supplier, but it was 42 years ago But this technology is bound to still be around.

I assume the roots of the plants are several metres up in the air? Perhaps some pics would help us to advise you.

All you need is a pump and watering lance, buy the lance on amazon and a spray pump, just exchange the heads.Or install a watering system which you can get from commercial suppliers.

Have you tried ebay?  Try typing in, Overhead watering of houseplants.

They sell them widely for watering hanging baskets.

They do sell realistic artificial flowers/plants now.  Have you thought of those?
