Sprinkler (outlet)
Explanation:
There are many types of systems to water plants. The most common is a dripper system, which basically is a pipe with a series of outlets to drip water slowly onto the soil in the immediate area of the plant. This is most often found in gardens.

Nurseries more often use a sprinkler system, however, as the plants are frequently moved around for obvious reasons.
